It has a large dining room and bar both decorated in a traditional African style. The large swimming pool and children’s play room are close by. The twenty five split-level suites are spread throughout the wooded area below the main building and have foreshortened views into the surrounding bush. Each room boasts a large modern bathroom, outdoor shower, private sitting area, and a spacious verandah complete with a private plunge pool. Nyala and other game often come close to these buildings.
Wildlife & Activities
In addition to day and night game drives with highly knowledgeable &Beyond rangers and trackers, guests can enjoy bush walks, and black rhino tracking on foot. Rhino notching and elephant collaring are also offered on a limited basis at an additional cost. Phinda’s close proximity to the Maputaland coastline means that guests can enjoy beach activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and beach picnics.
