Rorke's Drift Village, Accomadation Empty
PostSubject: Rorke's Drift Village, Accomadation   Rorke's Drift Village, Accomadation EmptyFri Nov 26, 2010 3:00 pm

Hi,
Due to go out to Zululand in late March 2011, so has anybody stayed at the Rork's Drift Village? If so, could you tell me if your stay there was good, or not so? The reason I'm asking, is that the rates to stay there are incredibly cheap! Roughly about £37 per day, which includes breakfast and dinner. Well that's what the website say's. Also, has anyone been guided around the Battlefields by Emmanuel, who run's the place? Again, if so, how much did he charge you? And what tours did you do? I'm trying to cut down on my expenses for the trip, so staying at places like Isandlwana Lodge, Babanango Lodge etc, I will miss, as I've stayed at these places before. Any information on my questions will be much appreciated.
Thanks.

It is possible to stay in one of the Zulu huts next to Rorkes Drift - very basic but I am sure you wouldbe looked after and may be a good price as well as an experience!

The kraals details may be obtained through the AZWS as they have something to do with the original construction.

Hi, I've never stayed at the Rorkes Drift Village but if you're looking for a cheaper but acceptable place to stay rather than the more upmarket spots you mention, you could try the Royal Hotel in Dundee. It's pretty basic but clean, the food is good and there's also a pretty good pub there too! It's obviously a bit more of a drive than Isandlwana/Fugitive Drift Lodge but the road's ok and takes you past Mangeni Falls on your way to the battlefields.

have a look at the RDVC forum, there are some reports plus links to the website.
In terms of the guide, Ken Gillings could possibly give some insight, a bad guide can ruin the experience.
The Royal in Dundee is a good bet as well, clean, non pretentious, good value.
Have a great trip.
Regards
