Fugitives' Drift Lodge is a country-style lodge set on a hillside above the Buffalo River Gorge and has been designed to complement its natural surroundings. You are surrounded by artefacts and cultural items from the Zulu Wars and need only sit back and listen to engaging stories about the fascinating people and history of the region.
The Buffalo River offers excellent fishing while the birdlife is both diverse and abundant. Head out on game drives to spot zebra, giraffe and a variety of antelope species that have recently been reintroduced to the property. Learn about the local isiZulu culture on a self-drive tour of the nearby village and explore the other nearby battlefields on organised day tours with the lodge's experienced and expert guides. The truly adventurous can book a helicopter tour of the battlefields to get a bird's eye view of how opposing forces where helped or hindered by the area's varied topography.
Fugitives' Drift is not only for military or history buffs: anyone can enjoy the peace of the kwaZulu-Natal countryside and the discreet service that this luxurious lodge offers adventurous travellers.
