Phinda Reserve is cradled in the arms of the Ubombo Mountains and flanked to the east by golden beaches and the Indian Ocean, in KwaZulu-Natal. This is one of Africa’s most diverse wilderness areas, boasting seven ecozystems and an extraordinary range of wildlife.
Phinda Vlei Lodge is an elegant and exclusive lodge whose stilted suites of thatch, teak and glass overlook Phinda’s unique ’vlei ’ or pan system at the edge of the forest. Each of the six suites boasts a large, airy double bedroom with spacious en-suite bathroom and gorgeous free standing tubs, private plunge pool and outdoor deck, ideal for bird and game watching.
Relax and unwind in the comfortable sitting area in front of a warm and inviting open fireplace. Savor delicious and innovative Pan African meals, served on the expansive game viewing decks or in a beautiful and remote bush setting.
Here you can enjoy twice daily game drives, interpretive bush walks where you can explore the fascinating ecozystems of the rare dry sand forest and canoeing/boat cruises on the Mzinene River. You can also go diving in the Indian Ocean or why not take to the skies to get a totally different perspective of the Phinda Game Reserve's wonderfully diverse landscape.
