About your hotel

History enthusiasts are well catered for with the Rorke’s Drift battle site less than 15-minutes walk away, whilst Isandlwana is a 20-minute drive. Birders and photographers are increasingly enjoying the venue too and there is a hiking trail to the mountain summit behind the hotel. There are also past bushman paintings and horse riding along the early pioneer wagon trail.

The soaring thatched roofs and circular building shape draw from Zulu traditional architecture and house a total of 15 rooms, some offering river views. After a day on the Battlefields, the deck and pool provide a relaxing place to enjoy the views.
