ABOUT THE LODGE

With wrap-around views of the spectacular Ubombo Mountains and the South African bushveld below, Mountain Lodge is set apart from other safari lodges due to its dramatic location.

Observe the serenity of the South African wilderness from your private deck, surrounded by the indigenous trees and shrubbery of the pristine Zululand bushveld. Each suite features a comfortable sitting area below the large beds. Paved pathways lead down the mountainside from the main guest areas to the spacious suites - a subtly executed blend of avant-garde and ethnic design.

Delicious Pan-African cuisine is enjoyed in the dramatic boma (outdoor dining area) illuminated by dozens of candles and lanterns, or served to you in a spectacular clearing in the bush under a star-studded sky. Phinda is renowned for wonderful bush banqueting in surprising settings.

ABOUT PHINDA GAME RESERVE

This private game reserve was formed about 10 years ago along the borders of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park - one of Africa's most ecologically diverse regions. Farmland was restored back to its natural habitats and stocked with big game animals. Seven different eco systems exist on the reserve including forest and coastal, and its variety renders it perfect for an escape of luxury and adventure. Conservation Corporation Africa has built four private lodges in the reserve, each in its own environment with differing qualities. This venture not only supports animals but also improves employment, education and health facilities in the local communities. You can catch a glimpse of Zulu life, past and present by visiting a traditional cultural village aligned to the Phinda reserve.
 
ANIMALS & ACTIVITIES

In addition to vehicle game viewing , you can also go rhino tracking on foot in this reserve. There is also the opportunity to watch turtles laying their eggs on a remote beach and to dive amongst them on the coral reefs. Hippos inhabit the ancient waterways. Please note that we will not canoe past hippo's as it is too dangerous and we will avoid them at all costs, even horse riding is an option here.
