Isandlwana | Zululand
Among the rolling hills of Zululand, cut into the rock face, lies Isandlwana Lodge, overlooking the battlefield and plains where the Zulus defeated the British in the first major battle of the Anglo-Zulu war on 22 January 1879.
The lodge has been built in the shape of a shield, with a thatched roof and rock walls resembling a traditional Zulu kraal. Each of the columns that support the roof come from the old West Street Pier in Durban and is named after a Zulu commander or significant person in the chain of command during the Anglo-Zulu War.
Situated in the very heart of the historic location where these remarkable events took place, Isandlwana reverberates with Zulu history and culture, reflected not only in the décor throughout the public areas and the twelve bedrooms. All bedrooms are individually decorated and have their own private balcony overlooking Isandlwana Mountain and plain.
