Room Overview

Location: South Africa–>KwaZulu-Natal–>Phinda Private Game Reserv

Accommodation Type: Lodge

Good For: Solo, Couple/Romantic, Family

Phinda Private Game Reserve is an enchanting and colourful park nestled in at the confluence of seven entirely distinct ecosystems – home to 23 000 hectares of exclusive, lodge-bearing natural habitat. The reserve itself is crammed into the rich land lying between the Mkuze Game Reserve and the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park (a World Heritage Site), as well as being within a sea mist’s reach of the Indian Ocean coastline. This yields an amazing rainfall pattern, producing conditions perfect for lush, grassy woodland scenes, broad, sweeping mountain ranges with impressive coverage, and some of the most exciting marine wildlife you’re likely to spot anywhere.

Safari orientated views from well furnished, luxury units. Intimate encounters with majestic wildlife and ubiquitous bird populations, a daily bombardment of wild character and supine environments – quiet and gorgeous. This is Phinda Vlei Lodge, a charming getaway, strung to the edge of a soft meadow where guests are regularly treated to views of peacefully grazing antelope.

Phinda Vlei is a sweeping swatch of African colour – beautiful, exciting, and a fantastic speaking point around a warm boma fire as the sun dips behind the valley’s far end, ringing in the starlit romance of the evening.
