      Phinda Zuka Lodge

      A Sophistication of Simplicity in South Africa

      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. Phinda is a wilderness sanctuary where intimate encounters and rare discoveries can be experienced firsthand. With unspoiled beaches and spectacular reefs nearby, and an abundance of wildlife, Phinda offers the perfect bush and beach adventure. Bordered by lush green valleys and densely wooded hills studded with aloes, Zuka Lodge at Phinda sits in the Reserve’s western region. With just four thatched Zululand bush cottages, this intimate lodge is ideal for family gatherings and special occasion safaris. As an exclusive-use lodge, a private ranger/host, tracker, butler, chef, and sole-use of an open 4x4 safari vehicle are all included, allowing guests to tailor make their safari adventure. Characterized by hues of blue and stone, with a strong emphasis on shape and texture, Zuka’s overall ambience is that of cool, coastal bush style - a sophistication of simplicity. The charming cottages are set 15 meters apart, overlooking a busy waterhole where a diversity of wildlife is regularly seen and birdlife flourishes. Each cottage boasts a luxurious en-suite bathroom, complete with a circular bath chamber, double shower and twin hand basins. Siesta-inviting lounging chairs on the private verandas allow for gentle contemplation. Guest areas include an interactive café style kitchen, indoor sitting and dining areas, an intimate library with internet access, and a swimming pool with an extended wooden deck overlooking the surrounding African wilderness. Everything you need is right within reach - your personal game ranger and game drive vehicle, an interactive kitchen with a dedicated chef, a butler to see to your daily needs, a comfortable library with Internet access and TV for the children, a sitting room with a fireplace for evening chats, your own swimming pool and even a private watering hole for your own exclusive wildlife encounters. With no set timetable or routine, savor the wonders of the bush at your own pace and leisure. Phinda showcases one of the continent’s finest game viewing experiences, including that of cheetah, Phinda features Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), endangered black rhino, and 415 bird species.
