Fugitives Drift is a 5,000 acre Heritage site overlooking the famous battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. Guests can stay in comfort and luxury in either the Lodge or Guest House. What makes this place special are the owners, the Ratrays, and their involvement with the local community and its history. A not to be missed or forgotten experience.
