At Rorke's Drift on the Buffalo River, Rorke's Drift Hotel nestles below Shiyane Mountain. The views along and across the river are spectacular and full of interest, and gentle walks in our natural bush surroundings will revive and stimulate. The historic crossing which gives the area its name is within our grounds and of course there is the battlefield, just 5 minutes away, where 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded. The complementary battle of Isandlwana is a 15 minute drive. We are 35mins from Dundee and 20 mins from Nqutu.
Our comfortable modern facilities were completed in 2011 and are housed in an unique architectural design taken from the Zulu idiom, enclosing the spacious bar, lounge and dining areas with the soaring thatched roof and picture windows. Wifi is available.
Our accommodation 'Fort' offers 7 double/twin ensuite rooms and we have four single ensuite rooms in the main building - our River Rooms. We also offer a suite at The Deanery, just beside the battlefield for those wishing an even closer encounter with history.
Visitors will be stunned by our position with open views of Zululand towards Isandlwana which are enriched by the history and the stories that you must hear from our deck. We offer a battlefield guiding service for our visitors so you may join a group or have individual attention to meet your wishes. The stunning venue is available for conferences, weddings and special functions.
