The Lodge

Fugitives Drift Lodge

Our five star lodge is the most luxurious of all of our accommodation options; each spacious room has an en-suite bathroom with both inside and outside showers, air-conditioning, a mini-fridge, and a veranda with views of the plains flanking the Buffalo River Gorge. Meals are taken communally in the large dining room, or – weather permitting – out on the deck. The Lodge also houses the Harford Library, Fugitives’ Drift Museum, and a swimming pool.


The Guest House

Fugitives Drift Guest House

Our Guest house rooms are comfortable, and individually decorated. They have ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, and verandas with views out into the garden and onto the indigenous bushveld. The Guest House boasts a sparkling pool and relaxing garden. The original farmhouse has been altered, and now forms a charming sitting and dining room, where meals are taken communally.


Umzinyathi Farmhouse

Fugitives Drift Umzinyathi Farmhouse

The farmhouse is a charming stone and corrugated iron roof building built in the 1920’s. It was the home of George Buntting, who was an expert on the Anglo-Zulu War. The farmhouse is at the top of the reserve and has a wonderful view of Isandlwana. It has three en-suite bedrooms, a sitting room with a fire place, a dining room, and a kitchen. Although the accommodation is self-catering, guests may choose to have some or all meals at the Lodge or Guest House at an additional cost. Should guests decide to take this accommodation, they will need to travel to and from the Lodge or the Guest House for tours and/ or meals (a 5-10 minute drive).



Kwa-George Accommodation

This small cottage is in the grounds of Umzinyathi Farmhouse; aptly named “Kwa-George” which means, “Place of George” in the Zulu language. Kwa-George consists of a basic twin bedroom, en suite bathroom with a shower, and veranda. Should you decide to take this accommodation you will need to travel to and from the Lodge or the Guest House for meals as well as tours (a 5-10 minute drive).
