Fugitive's Drift Lodge

Fugitive's Drift Lodge has been a client of ours since before IWM was even born! The Rattray family have been friends of ours for nearly 30 years and we've spent many happy days at their stunning property on the Natal/Zululand border.

You can see a series of videos and images at www.fugitivesdrift.privategamereservesandlodges.com.

As a taster, these two videos of Andrew Rattray talking about the Battle of Rorke's Drift give you a small insight into just how magical the experience is. If you ever get the chance to go to Fugitive's Drift Lodge and want to experience the stunning battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift, or the the Anglo Zulu War of 1879 in general, just go! You will remember it for the rest of your life!

This video shows the crack in the Buffalo River where the Zulu Impi crossed after the battle of Isandlwana in order to attack the mission station at Rorke's Drift. On the day of the battle the river was in full speight.
