EXPERIENCES OF A LIFETIME
THE GREAT BATTLES OF THE ZULU WARS
Fugitiveâ€™s Drift, Kwazulu-NatalThe Zulu War of 1879 is famous throughout the English-speaking world for the great battles of Isandlwana and Rorkeâ€™s Drift. The spectacular Fugitivesâ€™ Drift property (Kwazulu Natal), a Natural Heritage Site, overlooks both Isandlwana and Rorkeâ€™s Drift, and includes the site where Lieutenants Melvill and Coghill lost their lives attempting to save the Queenâ€™s Colour of their regiment.
If one tried to dream up geography and topography for the clash between two great nations, one could hardly come up with a more fantastic scene than this one.
It was here that David and Nicky Rattray pioneered Heritage Tourism in South Africa and created an award winning lodge for visitors to savour this extraordinary saga. Led by the finest guides in South Africa, thought-provoking and often emotionally charged tours are conducted daily to Isandlwana and Rorkeâ€™s Drift. Walks and horserides through the reserve to view abundant game and birdlife are offered as well as fishing the 20km frontage on the Buffalo River.
The reserve offers a choice of accommodation in either the Lodge or the Guest House, both of which have spacious and luxurious en-suite cottages which all have private verandahs and broad views over the plains flanking the Buffalo River Gorge. The Lodge and Guest House both have swimming pools set in their colourful, well established gardens which are home to innumerable bird species.ENQUIREÂ Â
