Phinda Rock Lodge
Phinda Rock Lodge is situated in the 28,555 hectare Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal region. The reserve encompasses an impressive seven diverse ecosystems and has an extraordinary range of wildlife, including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino.
Accommodation & Facilities
Phinda Rock Lodge is an intimate and rather quirky lodge dramatically set into a cliff face overlooking the magnificent Leopards Rock. Each of the six large air conditioned suites is suspended off the edge of the cliff providing spectacular uninterrupted views over the deep valley below and has a spacious bedroom, stylish bathroom leading to an outdoor shower, as well as a lounge and outdoor deck leading to a private plunge pool. The lodge has an elegant dining room, a lounge with French windows that open wide onto the large verandah, and a rooftop terrace for enjoying meals and drinks.
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. Horse riding is also on offer, along with visits to local villages, viewing turtle nesting sites, and sleep outs. Many of these activities are subject to additional fees, and can be arranged and paid for locally; several of them are for children of 12 years and upwards; please ask us for more details.
