Phinda Vlei Lodge
Phinda Vlei 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 an extraordinary range of wildlife, including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino.
Accommodation & Facilities
Phinda Vlei Lodge is a stylish and intimate property with just six beautiful thatched air conditioned en-suite rooms each with individual plunge pools on the wooden verandahs. The atmosphere in this elegant lodge is both exclusive and personal with a mixture of understated sophistication and ultimate luxury. Both the rooms and the raised dining deck have uninterrupted views across the open grassy vlei where it is not uncommon to observe grazing zebras, antelope or even herds of elephant.
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.
