Fugitives’ Drift consists of three luxurious lodges: the Lodge, the Guest House and Umzinyathi House, each with its own unique ambience. Guests can stay at the original Lodge which has recently undergone a major renovation, Half a kilometre further up the hill is the old colonial farmhouse and cottages of the Guest House with its more open, savannah-like aspect, and a further half a kilometre up the hill, set back from public access in private seclusion is the luxurious self-catering Umzinyathi House. Both the Lodge and the Guest House have swimming pools. Guest rooms in all three lodges are well appointed, comfortable and spacious. Meals are served table d’hôte in the individual dining rooms or, weather permitting, outside on the decks.
The 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.(more)
Guest House rooms are comfortable and individually decorated, with 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. (more)
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 3 en-suite bedrooms, a sitting room with a fire place, a dining room, and a kitchen. Although the accommodation is self-catering, you may choose to have some or all meals at the Lodge at an additional cost. Should you decide to take this accommodation, you will need to travel to and from the Lodge or the Guest House for tours and/ or meals (approximately a seven minute drive).(more)
