We spent 2 nights at Fugitive's Drift Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The staff are very friendly and efficient from check-in to check-out. The 2 tours we did we highly informative and emotive. It brings the story of these battles to life when you are standing in the place that they happened. We would highly recommend this lodge to both our local and overseas friends.
Every bit of our interactions from the reservation phone call to the last goodbye was 5-star! Be sure to book at least three nights in order to have time to also explore and enjoy the lodge and surrounding game reserve in addition to the battlefield tours. Highly recommended.
Wonderful overnight stay at Fugitive's Drift Lodge
Our stay at Fugitive's Drift was beyond our expectations. Located in a beautiful setting, the Lodge provided spacious comfortable accommodation and delicious food. The tours to the battlefields were outstanding and provided us with a very good understanding of what unfolded there.
Timeless Elegance, felt a million miles away yet it is right on our door step!!
We stayed in Umzinyathi House as a family with a 4month old baby. From the gate guard to the staff at the main Fugitives Drift lodge to Margaret at Umzinyathi House we were greeted so warmly we felt like we were apart of the "team" and we were immediately awestruck by the surroundings and felt a million miles away. The décor, an elegant mix of upscale class yet homey comforts, each detail considered it seemed. the museum setup already taking you back to yester-year and into the mindset of what to expect for the next days battle tours of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift... Nothing was too much for them, the baby was offered a cot if needed and taken from us into adoring hands during our stunning lunch at the lodge! We had sundowners overlooking the Sphinx shaped Isanadlwana off in the distance and chatted around a fire of the battles build up.... I think we slept so soundly in this quiet place I cannot say a dream was had.... Except for the parents of the baby that is! What a place to have had the Priviledge to visit in my life.
