Review of Fugitives Drift Guest House

Richard Horrocks & Graham Dixon

Upgraded to Lodge. Everything was fantastic. Accommodation, food, service and battlefield tours excellent. Can't wait to go back. Even those members of our party that weren't keen on the history of the Zulu battles were enthralled by the tour guide's talk as he described the battle scenes at Islandhwana and Rorke's Drift.
