Isibindi Zulu Lodge

The Battlefields

iSibindi Zulu Lodge is situated in a private game reserve in the ruggedly beautiful Zululand. An architectural celebration of the Zulu nation, the lodge is a peaceful bushveld retreat which also offers a host of activities for our guests wanting to experience a combination of luxurious accommodation, gameviewing, battlefields and Zulu cultural experiences.

The main lodge set amongst huge Buffalo Thorn Trees and dolorite boulders boasts a homely lounge with a large fireplace, a library, a unique bar carved out of a Wait-a-Bit thorn tree, a swimming pool with a view and spacious veranda. The privately set swimming pool has breathtaking views over the game reserve.

iSibindi Zulu Lodge is situated within the 4,000 acre Isibindi Eco-Reserve which offers diverse habitats ranging from montane grassland and valley thornveld to riverine forests.  The reserve is home to abundant indigenous game, morning and evening game drives are offered and there is excellent bird watching. It is also quite safe to walk or take a picnic along one of the meandering river beds and view giraffe, zebra and wildebeest.

This 12 bed luxury lodge is a stone's throw away from the historically momentous Anglo-Zulu battlefields of Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana where Zulu and British clashed in a devastating battle which had enormous consequences for the Zulu people.

Each beehived shaped suite is completely secluded and large French doors are the window to which you will waken, seeing the world as it was meant to be by the soft early morning light. Views are breathtaking from the comfortable cane chairs on your own private wooden veranda.
