Fugitive's Drift

KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Home to the late David Rattray, the pioneer of heritage tourism in the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields, Fugitive’s Drift Lodge has won a reputation as the finest and most interesting lodge in the Zulu War battlefield region. It is set in a wonderful position overlooking Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift - two of the most significant sites in South Africa’s military history - and is surrounded by a 4,000 acre National Heritage Site.

Each of the spacious lodge cottages are comfortable and traditionally furnished, while the large lounge and dining room house a substantial library with relics and memorabilia of the Zulu Wars. There’s plenty of space for kids to run around in the gardens - an oasis in between tours - and the swimming pool overlooking the Buffalo River is the perfect place to cool off at the end of the day.
 
Fugitives’ Drift is the perfect place for a family adventure: while parents will enjoy traditional battlefield tours, for kids there are plenty of ways to bring history to life, from gruesome accounts to the chance to hold a rifle used by the British at Rorke’s Drift.
