Fugitive’s Drift Accommodation

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 3 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 at an additional cost.

Kwa-George

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).
