Isandlwana Lodge

About Isandlwana Lodge

Travel from the fast pace and stress of urban living to the peace and tranquillity of Isandlwana Lodge, an impressive building carved into the side of the Nyoni Rock. This is the mountain on which Ntshingwayo, King Cetshwayo’s Senior General, stood to observe the Zulu warriors rendering one of the greatest defeats the British Army ever experienced in the colonies at Isandlwana on the 22nd of January 1879.

From the private balcony of your room enjoy a breathtaking view of the battlefield, plain and mountains in the distance and the village below. Watch the village come to life and then slow down at the end of the day. Experience the warm hospitality of the Zulu staff, tasty food prepared by an all Zulu women chefs brigade and enthralling and emotional tours of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift by resident historian and author, Rob Gerrard, FRGS, or one of his associates. Other Anglo Zulu and Anglo Boer War tours may be booked on request. Birding, star-gazing, an authentic cultural village tour, horse riding (minimum of 8 people for major rides), a photographic safari and hikes, or just lazing at the pool built among the rocks are a few of the activities offered at the lodge.
