Fugitives’ Drift Guest House

Fugitives’ Drift lodge and guest house are located inside the Fugitives’ Drift game reserve on the lip of the Buffalo River gorge, at an altitude of 3,450 feet.The guest house has a commanding view of the peak of Isandlwana, and of the rough country the fugitives from the battle had to traverse in order to get back across the Buffalo River into Natal. The guest house was once the home of Mr. and Mrs. Potgieter who were immortalized in Gillian Rattray’s award-winning book, 'The Springing of the Year'. This old farmhouse has been altered and now forms the most charming sitting and dining room. The original verandas have been retained and there is a lovely outside eating area. There are are 6 superior twin en-suite rooms, all with views of the garden, which has an abundance of bird life in it. We also have two rooms for guides and drivers. The guest house has a large swimming pool; also hosting spectacular views across the plain.Guests at the guest house are able to take part in our world-renowned tours to the Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift battlefields.
