About Elandsheim

Elandsheim is in the heart of the Zulu Wars battlefields, located 14 km from Rorke’s Drift and 33 km from Isandlwana. The setting is tranquil Zululand thornveld and we are lucky to have two game reserves within five minutes’ drive from the property.

Originally developed as a retreat by the Lutheran congregation at Elandskraal, Elandsheim has now become the perfect venue for large groups. We cater for educational tours and functions, as well as bed and breakfast clients on a budget. We can cater for up to 120 persons comfortably in our bed and breakfast flats and our rustic wooden huts.

Elandsheim is becoming a popular wedding venue. The wedding service can be conducted in the historic stone-built Lutheran church; guests accommodated in our wooden huts, and the reception held in our attractive wooden floor hall that can seat up to 120 guests. If additional seating is required for guests, we have outdoor dining areas as well as extensive, attractive grounds shaded by beautiful acacia trees.
