Built high up on the Nyoni Rocks on which the Zulu commanders stood to direct the Battle of Isandlwana, Isandlwana Lodge overlooks the enigmatic Isandlwana Mountain and historic battle site below, where the British Army faced one of its worst defeats on the morning of the 22 January 1879. Built of thatch and stone with huge wooden columns supporting floor-to-ceiling glass windows, the lodge is decorated with a combination of traditional and modern styles.
Visit the friendly local Zulu people and learn about their fascinating culture or hear stories of the historical battle. Explore the area on a game safari, as the lodge is also in short driving distance to several game reserves, such as Umfolozi and Hluhluwe, boasting the Big 5. Isandlwana offers many exciting exclusive daytrips. For something truly memorable, explore a horseback trail with an experienced rider-guide or grab your binoculars and go on a birding-walking tour to see over 70 species of bird.
