Fodor's Review

It's worth the trek from Isandlwana to stay in one of the country's most famous watering holes. This is where the cast of the movie Zulu Dawn, starring Sir Richard Attenborough and Michael Caine, rested up and relaxed in the late '70s. It's a tiny place decorated in country style, with lots of wood and earthy colors. Don't expect a gourmet meal, but the grilled rump steak and french fries are tasty and inexpensive.
