Travel Counsellors would like to welcome you to Phinda Mountain Lodge. Perched on a hilltop, with wraparound views of the lush Lebombo foothills, Phinda Mountain Lodge is the ultimate family safari destination in Phinda Private Game Reserve.
The iconic &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve encompasses an impressive 28,555 hectares (70,560 acres) of protected wildlife land in KwaZulu-Natal. Showcasing one of the continent’s finest game viewing experiences, the reserve is home to Africa’s Big Five, as well as to 436 bird species.
Phinda Mountain Lodge features three room types, with 16 suites, six cottages (these can be turned into three adjoining family cottages), and one family suite. Natural light streams through the expansive glass windows of the suites and cottages, while private decks provide breath-taking views of natural beauty.
Each accommodation option features an outdoor shower, well-stocked personal bars and private plunge pools.
In the main area, guests can share safari stories around the bar whilst enjoying meals in the interactive kitchen, complete with a pizza oven (this is ideal fun for the kids to create their own dinner). A traditional stone and reed boma is illuminated by dozens of candles, and lanterns, and provides the ultimate setting for the al fresco dinners. A sparkling lodge rim flow pool follows the natural curves of the mountain, while a new state-of-the-art gym is ideal for fitness fanatics, and a massage sala is available for those wanting to indulge in tranquil treatments.
