Fugitives Drift Lodge

Tailored Just For You

Our personal travel specialists go above and beyond to give you the best luxury experience, and every holiday we create is tailored just for you by our experts.

‘Emotive, timeless and historic’

Recounting the emotion of the 1879 Zulu War, Fugitive’s Drift pays homage to the lost lives and sacred grounds that was once a coveted homeland. This battlefields property features memorable tours from informed guides, where guests will learn more of the plight of both the Zulu warriors and the British soldiers. This picturesque land is home to an equally impressive lodge featuring luxury en-suite cottages, created by the vision of David and Nicky Rattray, two real pioneers of heritage tourism in South Africa.

In Our Opinion

‘Recommended to guests interested in the history of the region and eager to discover what makes the South African Battlefields such an emotional place’
