About Battlefields Country Lodge

Battlefields Country Lodge is situated in Dundee and lies in the heartbeat of the battlefields in northern KwaZulu Natal. Explore Boer, Brit and Zulu battle sites at Isandlwana, Rorke's Drift, Blood River, Ncome and Talana museums.

Battlefields Country Lodge is nestled in green valleys overlooking rolling hills, dams and the famous Talana hill which is the site of the first battle between the Boers and the British soldiers.


Battlefields Country Lodge boasts with 70 accommodation units ranging from unique, silo-styled units to luxury, self-catering suites set in beautiful lush gardens with swimming pool and overlooking dams, mountains, horses, some game and stunning bird life. All rooms are serviced daily by our friendly, Zulu housekeeping staff.

The lodge was established in 1998 by the Roos family, who still run the lodge, The old original cottage, which was used as a farm workshop, was renovated into 6 en-suite rooms and named Rosie’s Cottage after Rosie Rogers who lived in it for many years!

Thereafter, two old grain silos next to the old milking shed were built up and made into 4 en-suite rooms with a stairway joining the top two rooms. Unfortunately, the walls of the milking shed were crumbling and the idea of turning it into a manger chapel & school-tour dormitory was dashed, so the iron roof was removed and used to build a gazebo which has been used as a chapel for wedding ceremonies!

The silo’s became sought after and another 2 silo’s were built and made bigger than the original. There are now 10 silo’s! These have been a wonderful experience for our tourists & a landmark for our lodge. The silos are extremely popular with our international guests.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, mostly with showers, some with baths, all are fully equipped with tea / coffee facilities, satellite television, heaters / fans.
