Fugitive's Drift

The spectacular Fugitives’ Drift property, a 5,000 acre Natural Heritage Site, overlooks both Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift.

This delightful late-Victorian lodge overlooks the Buffalo River Gorge, near the historic battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. Founded by the late David Rattray and his wife Nicky, Fugitive’s Drift is renowned for its battlefield tours but is also set in the most magnificent surroundings.

Accommodation is either in the Lodge or the Guest House with a total of 17 individually decorated en-suite rooms, each with a private veranda and sweeping views of the reserve and battlefields. Both have their own sitting and dining rooms, fascinating collection of memorabilia and swimming pool. In addition to fascinating battlefield tours, other activities include nature walks, fishing and riding.

Guideline Price

We can arrange a four-night stay at Fugitives' Drift Lodge from £2,405 per person, including all meals and drinks, two battlefield tours and a guided walk. Also included are return British Airways flight from Heathrow to Durban and five days' car rental. A stay at the lodge can also be included as part of a self-drive itinerary.

We are proud to support the work of the David Rattray Foundation with a donation of £100 for all bookings for Fugitive Drift Lodge confirmed by 31 July 2014.
