There are several excellent lodges (six in total) within Phinda Private Reserve's 23,000 hectares of pristine African bush. It's an area blessed with a varied and diverse habitat, particularly known for its healthy populations of cheetah, both black and white rhino and magnificent nyala antelope.

Phinda offers a choice of six lodges, all private and with excellent service, hospitality and luxury levels - ranging from the larger lodges like Phinda Mountain Lodge (25 rooms), Phinda Forest Lodge (16 rooms) to the smaller Phinda Vlei and Phinda Rock lodges (6 rooms each) to the intimate, usually sole-use, Phinda Homestead and Phinda Zuka, with only four rooms and a maximum capacity of eight each, perfect for small groups of family and/or friends.

Each lodge is unique with its own appeal and setting: some are perched high on a hillside with spectacular views and others are settled softly in forests or on the valley floor. Find your own Phinda favourite.
