At Rorke's Drift on the Buffalo River the Hotel (estd 2011) commands scenic views acrpss the river to the hills of Zululand. Our open plan public building has impressive space to encompass lounge, dining and bar which lead from the welcoming reception. Fifteen ensuite double or twin rooms are in two separate circular buildings and each has its own small deck, and five single rooms are in addition. Guests often enjoy a short walk on arrival down to the river bank and more extensive routes from the hotel grounds are up the mountain behind us; across the river to Masotcheni (hill of the soldiers); to The Cliffs beauty spot or to the Rorke's Drift museum and battlesite. Isandlwana and Fugitive's Drift are just 25 and 15 minutes drive away, and Blood River an easy 45 minute journey.
