I decided to stay at Isibindi Lodge for one reason only - to visit the Zulu War battlefields - and was not disappointed.

Amazing trip to the battlefields. The Zulu dancing and singing was genuine and not the "canned" variety. Unexpected birthday present for hubby was thoughtful.

Taking into consideration that all properties in Roarkes Drift are expensive we found this not up to our expectations. Very eco, no fridge, tv or internet and whilst the staff were excellent not sure cost was justified and would not recomend.
