Isandlwana Lodge Hosts Sporting Celebreties

Isandlwana Lodge, in northern Zululand, recently hosted the JSE group, which included a couple of notable sporting celebrities.

Ron Gravelet-Blondin, the grandson of Jean-Francois Gravelet-Blondin, who became famous in 1859 for walking a tightrope over Niagara Falls, was one of these guests. Another was former world class South African athlete, Sydney Maree.

Isandlwana Lodge is fast gaining a reputation for attracting celebrities. Previous high-profile guests include former US President Jimmy Carter and other members of the Carter family, and The Right Honorable, The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Michael Oliver.

Guests have been impressed by the natural beauty, splendid accommodation and cuisine, and of course the spectacular trips to the battlefields for which the region is famous.

The lodge is situated only three-and-a-half hours drive from Durban, at the site of the first battle of the Anglo-Zulu War, near Rorke’s Drift. One of the highlights of a stay at Isandlwana is the tailor made historic tours through the Isandlwana battlefield with acclaimed resident historian Rob Gerrard.


Twelve stunning en-suite rooms, all offer guests luxurious accommodation and unparalleled views of the magnificent scenery. The specialist chef and dining facilities promise some of the best food in KwaZulu Natal.

Activities include photographic safaris, Zulu dance and music, horse-riding, walking trails and excellent birding opportunities.
