The Phinda Private Game Reserve is situated on the unspoiled northern coastline of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. The natural beauty of Phinda is breathtaking. There are seven distinct habitats in the reserve, sometimes referred to as “seven worlds of wonder”. Phinda has everything from unblemished beaches to marshland, woodland, grassland and forest. The very special dry sand forest is home to the red duiker and suni. Phinda also hosts the largest privately-owned nyala population in the world. The reserve takes up 23 000 hectares of some of the most spectacular natural beauty in the country and offers a perfect bush and beach adventure. Only here can a visitor see elephant, rhinos, cheetahs, whale sharks and dolphins in one day.
Phinda (which translates to 'back to the wild') offers seven distinct habitats with accommodations adapted to suit and blend into each environment. All the lodges have to perform eco-audits in order to achieve an ideal condition where they put back more than they take out. All Phinda's lodges offer luxurious five star accommodations with high levels of personal service and attention to detail. Similar safari activities are conducted from each of the lodges.
Phinda Forest Lodge >>
Forest Lodge hosts 16 suites that can accommodate up to 32 guests. It is child-friendly and offers internet access as well as child-minding services. The glass suites are built on stilts, creating the illusion that they are floating above the floor of the rare sand forest. All suites have a private veranda and personal bar.
Rock Lodge clings to the side of a rocky cliff overlooking the spectacular Leopard Rock. There are six suites to accommodate 12 guests. Because of the location, children are not permitted. All suites are en suite with a personal bar, plunge pool, private sitting area and deck. The main guest area has dramatic fire places and a shaded deck.
