The Rorke's Drift Hotel is situated overlooking the Buffalo River on the slopes of Shiyane/The Oscarberg in the rolling hills of Zululand. The historic crossing that gives the area its name is located within the hotel grounds and served as a connection between the battles of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift.

The hotel offers modern and comfortable facilities designed to cater to the needs of discerning travelers seeking peaceful relaxation amidst iconic history and natural countryside. It features a stunning location overlooking the Buffalo River, with open views across the river towards Isandlwana. The architectural design is a modern amalgamation of Zulu and Victorian cultures.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by an array of large round buildings that house the hotel's facilities. The round buildings, with their natural-colored finishes and thatched roofs, draw inspiration from the Zulu tradition, while their unique roof design provides spacious rooms and generous natural light. The extensive deck extends around the dining and lounge areas.

The accommodation units, referred to as "forts," feature open centers that provide access to each of the double en-suite rooms. While the exteriors of these units embrace the traditional Zulu style, the interiors and finishes are inspired by Victorian design. The furnishings in the rooms reflect the era of the Victorian soldier, with each room named after a distinguished warrior from the campaign.

The generous double/twin en-suite bedrooms offer comfortable beds and exceptional panoramic views of wild Africa through vast picture windows, showcasing the beauty of the Buffalo River, the Zululand veldt, and Mount Shiyani.
