We stayed as a party of 6 for 2 nights, celebrating our daughetrs birthday and Phinda delivered in every respect. The game viewing was phenomenal with 3 Leopard sightings, a Cheetah kill and Lions plus much more during the 4 drives of our stay. Our guide Eric, was extremely professional and got us right into the action. The food was...

Had an incredible stay at Phinda Mountain Lodge - large stylish suites, delicious food and friendly staff. The rangers were so knowledgeable and thoughtful and were great with our kids. Lots of little suprises like champagne in the bush and even the Easter bunny made an appearance. Excellent game viewing in stunning scenery. Highly recommend it.

We stayed in Phinda for 4 days in the middle of March and for us, this was a once in a lifetime experience... where do I start? The accommodation is outstanding, the rooms are great with beautiful views from your bed and even better views from your balcony & plunge pool. The free mini bar was stocked up twice a...

Initially we were disappointed we did not get the Forest Lodge. Our opinion changed after talking with friends who were staying there and they did not see the big five, some only saw two of the five. We were so blessed to have Sibo and Tom as our guide and tracker. Forty years experience at Phinda between them. They made...

This really is a wonderful lodge with attentive staff, from the time you arrive to the time you leave. It has a stunning position in the game reserve with uninterrupted vie s across the whole game reserve. The food is excellent, not too fussy but varied enough to make it interesting, the same with the wine choice. Without doubt, the...

We stayed here for three nights as part of a six night Phinda safari. The whole experience was superb. The lodge is large (24 suites) but doesn’t feel crowded, although you may have to share the open topped Landcruiser with two other couples (usually not a problem as the other travellers are always interesting). The game-spotting opportunities are extensive and...

We stayed at Phinda Mountain Lodge for the safari portion of a safari-and-beach holiday, and it was truly wonderful. The lodge is beautifully designed, the rooms are private and comfortable - that bathtub! those views! - and the game-viewing is excellent. Phinda Mountain Lodge's chef is superb: the food is fresh, delicious and varied, and the kitchen easily accommodated our...

We spent 14 days in South Africa and Mozambique for our honeymoon and our time at Phinda Mountain Lodge was by far our favorite. The accommodations were incredibly private and well-serviced. We spent every night with the windows open so we could enjoy the sounds of wildlife. We arranged many of our honeymoon activities around food and the food at...

We had a tough time selecting the perfect setting for our 25th anniversary trip to Africa because Africa is not an inexpensive destination. We found that many areas were incredibly high priced but only offer accommodations that looked like they were pulled out of an old dated 3 star Cuban hotel and transplanted to Africa! We also did not want...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With wraparound views of the ancient Ubombo mountain range, Mountain Lodge balances itself majestically above its panoramic surroundings. The 24 suites scattered along the mountainside offer complete privacy and luxury. There's no end to the choice of taking in the view - spacious verandas with private plunge pools and layered guest areas each provide their own magnificent outlook. Delicious Pan African meals are enjoyed in the dramatic stone and reed boma, lit by the warm glow of dozens of candles and lanterns. ... more   less
