Carved into the iNyoni rock, Isandlwana Lodge looks out over historically significant Mount Isandlwana, the site of the famous Anglo-Zulu battle. Savour endless views over the magnificent plains and mountains from this historic vantage point. In January 1879, this was the site of one of the most dramatic and enthralling events in the history of the Zulu Kingdom. The historical battleground on Isandlwana Mountain stands quiet and serene amid the lush hills of Zululand today, as if never disturbed by battle.
The lodge offers the ideal base from which to explore this unique part of South African history. In addition you are spoilt for choice with horse riding, birding, walking and other moving battle sites all within close proximity. Take the time time to learn more about the vibrant Zulu people and their culture on a village tour.
After a day of exploration, return to the lodge for a delectable meal with Continental hints and an African twist. Your room offers a charming retreat and is decorated in an eclectic mix between modern and the traditional.
It’s easy to unwind at the sparkling pool built among the rocks or enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the library where you can hone up on your history. Make new friends in the pleasant surroundings of the lounge or simply relax on your private balcony.
