About
Description
Isandlwana Lodge offers twelve luxury rooms all en-suite and tastefully decorated in a mixture of traditional and modern styles. The Lodge is carved into the iNyoni rock formation on top of which the More Zulu commander stood during the battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879. Enjoy unparalleled views from the crisp early light of a sparkling Zulu dawn to the splendor of the African sunset. Less

Unfortunatly you will need a car to get to Isandlwana you may be able to get a driver + car to take you there maybe from Durban.Its a magical place and well worth a visit+ the Battlefields etc.
