Isibindi Zulu Lodge is situated in a private game reserve in the ruggedly beautiful Zululand, in the heart of the Anglo-Zulu battlefields, approximately 9km from the world-renowned battlefields of Rorke’s Drift & Isandlwana. An architectural celebration of the Zulu nation, the lodge is a peaceful bushveld retreat which also offers a host of activities for guests wanting to experience a combination of luxurious accommodation, gameviewing, battlefields and Zulu cultural experiences.


Architecturally inspired by the traditional Zulu beehive shape, the six beehive suites offer panoramic views of the game reserve and its diverse habitats ranging from montane grassland to riverine forests.

Each Beehive suite has its own viewing deck overlooking the game reserve and the surrounding hills like Rorke's Drift. All rooms are en-suite with separate bath and spacious shower.

The Honeymoon suite, commanding views of a particularly game rich area of the reserve, has a romantic sunken stone bath. The rooms are individually set along the ridge ensuring ones privacy in this tranquil environment.


The main lodge set amongst huge Buffalo Thorn Trees and dolorite boulders boasts a homely lounge with a large fireplace, a library, a unique bar carved out of a Wait-a-Bit Thorn Tree, a swimming pool with a view and spacious verandah. The privately set swimming pool has breathtaking views over the game reserve. Guests gather around the bar in the evenings to recall the days safari on the Anglo-Zulu Battlefields or a game walk on the game reserve. Isibindi Zulu Lodge takes pride in its cuisine and has developed a reputation for its unique presentation of South African Fair. Breakfasts and lunches are either served al fresco at the swimming pool or on the verandah.


iSibindi Zulu Lodge offers guided tours of the Anglo-Zulu battlefields. The chilling accounts of the battles of Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana present a deeper insight of the rich history in the area. Presented alongside the military narrative, a complete picture of the impact of the Anglo-Zulu campaign on both the Zulu and British nations is formed.

Guests are encouraged to explore the game reserve in morning and evening game drives or walks. The iSibindi Eco-Reserve also has a traditional village, which offers authentic tours where guests are given the opportunity of exploring traditional Zulu food and drink whilst enjoying an evening of energetic Zulu dancing. A cultural tour nearby villages, trading stores and subsistence farmers, allows guests to interact with Zulu people who have been largely unaffected by modern development. There are also Panoramic days trips which visit waterfalls, gorges, rock paintings and local crafts.
