Situated in the famous Anglo Zulu Battlefields, Kwa Zulu Natal is a celebration of the rich cultural heritage of the Zulu nation. This is expressed in the magnificent beehive structure of the bedrooms which offer spectacular views over the rugged 2000 hectare Isibindi Eco Reserve. This intimate 6 room lodge offers comfortable accommodation, good home cooking & an authentic experience of this fascinating area. Game drives & walks are offered on the reserve which is abundantly stocked with Plains Game. There are challenging roads for mountain bike enthusiasts to conquer on the reserve. Guests staying 2 nights or longer get to enjoy a Boma Dinner, and Zulu Cultural Experience of traditional dancing and stick fighting. Day trips to the battle sites of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift are a must.
