      The Homestead

      Seven Worlds of Wonder in South Africa

      "Phinda Private Game Reserve encompasses more than 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. Situated in the north of the reserve, The Homestead at Phinda is a gracious sole-use safari villa that blends seamlessly into the surrounding trees and bush. This exclusive, cutting-edge lodge boasts four spacious and luxurious suites that feature unique sliding panel windows with sweeping views of the surrounding African bushveld. The emphasis is on outdoor spaces to encourage family and friends to maximize usage of the expansive central living areas. Celebrating both Phinda and Zululand, traditional materials of thatch, gumpole and stone tile have been used throughout. The outdoor sitting area is the heart of the Homestead and the perfect place to laze away the hours on inviting sofas. Complete with private ranger/host, tracker, butler and chef, as well as exclusive-use of an open 4x4 safari vehicle, The Homestead is ideal for family celebrations and special occasion safaris. An interactive kitchen allows for intimate, informal dining and a rim flow eternity pool provides for respite from the heat of the day. Phinda showcases one of the continent’s finest game viewing experiences, including cheetahs, Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) and 415 bird species. Explore the pristine sanctuary of Phinda with a fascinating game drive, offered twice daily and accompanied by an experienced ranger and tracker team eager to expand your knowledge of the wilderness and share in your wildlife encounters. Explore on foot and get even closer to Phinda’s incredible diversity 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 luxury walking safari, 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.
