About Rorke's Drift Hotel

At Rorke’s Drift on the Buffalo River, Rorke’s Drift Hotel nestles below Shiyane Mountain. The views along and across the river are spectacular and full of interest, and gentle walks in our natural bush surroundings will revive and stimulate.

The historic crossing which gives the area its name is within our grounds and of course there is the battlefield, just five minutes away, where 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded. The complementary battle of Isandlwana is a 15 minute drive. We are 35 minutes from Dundee and 20 minutes from Nqutu.

Accommodation

Our comfortable modern facilities are housed in an unique architectural design taken from the Zulu idiom, enclosing the spacious bar, lounge and dining areas with the soaring thatched roof and picture windows. WiFi is available.

Our accommodation ‘Fort’ offers seven double / twin ensuite rooms and we have four single ensuite rooms in the main building – our River Rooms. We also offer a suite at The Deanery, just beside the battlefield for those wishing an even closer encounter with history.

Visitors will be stunned by our position with open views of Zululand towards Isandlwana which are enriched by the history and the stories that you must hear from our deck. We offer a battlefield guiding service for all our visitors.

Activities and Attractions

Visitors are invited to
Imagine a Step back in Time - amble about in the bush on our 20 hectare site, visiting the original Drift that was made by James Rorke in 1835, and wonder at its clever design. Take a guided trail to the Bushman cave paintings that overlook the valley from the slopes of Shiyane.

Follow the trails that were used by the British soldiers when they invaded Zululand in 1879, and where they retreated after the Zulu Army overwhelmed their camp at Isandlwana. Visit the cemetery across the Buffalo River; the resting place of soldiers and pioneers.

Visit the museum and the Rorke’s Drift Battlefield and see how 100 British soldiers prevented the Zulu Army from invading colonial Natal and threatening Durban. Learn how their feat of arms was recognised by the award of 11 Victoria Crosses.
