      Phinda Rock Lodge

      Balanced on the Edge of a Breathtaking Precipice

      Phinda Private Game Reserve encompasses an impressive 23,000 hectares (56,800 acres) of prime wilderness land in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Phinda is described as “Seven Worlds of Wonder”, with its seven distinct habitats - a magnificent tapestry of woodland, grassland, wetland and forest, interspersed with mountain ranges, river courses, marshes and pans. With unspoiled beaches and spectacular reefs nearby, and an abundance of wildlife, Phinda offers the perfect bush and beach adventure. Dramatically set into a cliff-face overlooking spectacular Leopard Rock, Rock Lodge at Phinda is an architectural fascination combining Malian influences with pueblo panache. Its six suites are seemingly suspended over the deep valley below, providing breathtaking views. Each romantic suite, constructed from contoured stone and adobe, boasts an earthy, soft grey palette and solid wooden shutters and doors, which open onto a private plunge pool and viewing deck. Featuring spacious en suite bathrooms, the suites also offer outdoor showers, providing some of the most scenic al fresco bathing on the African continent. Decorated in hues of oatmeal, grey and stone, the lodge’s intimate and glamorous guest areas offer the perfect vantage point for viewing the reserve’s abundant birdlife in the surrounding trees, and the wildlife roaming the bush below. Immense French doors open onto an extended outdoor veranda, the perfect setting for al fresco meals, while a rooftop terrace provides a romantic venue for dining beneath the stars. Striking, fiery sunsets set the scene for bush banquets in bush clearings. Here, guests are treated like treasured family members and time is shared with fellow safari adventurers, who soon become friends. Explore the pristine sanctuary of Phinda with a game drive, offered twice daily and accompanied by an experienced ranger and tracker team. Explore on foot with an interpretive bush walk experience, or glide along the Mzinene River and experience the wild along tranquil, cool waters as you take in the vast wilderness around you. Enjoy scuba diving adventures, a black rhino tracking experience, horse riding trails in the bush, specialist birding or even take part in a leopard research specialist safari at an additional cost.
