My family was so sad to leave Phinda. What an amazing experience! Staff- super friendly and helpful. Great with kids. Fun and knowledgable tracker and guide on our safari treks. There was even a designated child activity planner. My daughter loved making a bow and arrow in the arts and crafts room. They organized our transport to the airport as...

Well done to AndBeyond, they have again surpassed our expectations of what a great experience a Safari should be. Mountains lodge is in a spectacular location with stunning views from both the main lodge and from the apartments, and the game drives were truly wonderful. Our Ranger JG and spotter Betheuil <sp?> were absolutely top notch and some of the...

I’m giving 5 stars to both this lodge and to Vlei lodge, where my wife and I stayed for a few additional days – but for slightly different reasons. You can read my reviews of Vlei on the other review section. Mountain Lodge offers wonderful game viewing – and is especially convenient for groups and families. Due to the fact...

From the moment we decided to spend hour Honeymoon in South Africa and do a safari, the company &Beyond won my attention. From the time of research on the Internet for the ideal Game Reserve for safari, public or private, the most suitable resort for the honeymoon, the orientation to align the flight schedules with the transfers and the charter...

Phinda Mountain Lodge is nice. Not exceptional as accommodation but perfectly nice. It is hugely improved by the people who work there. I will explain. The rooms are perfectly lovely. They are very large, cleaned twice a day and contain all the amenities you could need. There are robes and slippers, mosquito repellents, fully stocked bar and sweets for snacks....

Phinda Mountain Lodge is exquisite. From the moment we were greeted by Reggie and his staff our two nights at Phinda Mountain were magical. The self contained suite was luxuriously appointed and boasted its own deck and private plunge pool. The food was delicious and plentiful. Nikki (our ranger) and Musa (our tracker) gave us an exhilarating experience. The animals...

Stayed for 3 nights at this awesome 5 Star Lodge. This was the pinnacle of our three weeks holiday! The management and staff are extremely professional and the suites are magnificent. The food was delicious and well presented. We have been on several game drives (at various locations) over the years but our game drives with Nikki (the Ranger) and...

This was the final leg of our anniversary trip and we could not have had a better 3 night stay than being at Mountain Lodge. Our welcome after a long drive was great, iced drinks and towels to revive us. We were appointed our personal waitress/butler and after having had our luggage delivered to our lodge and our car parked,...

This was our third andBeyond adventure and just when you think it couldn't get better, the team sets the bar even higher. We stayed 3 nights at Phinda Mountain Lodge and 3 nights at Phinda Forest Lodge - completely different but both exceptional in terms of wildlife, accommodation and service. We saw lion hunting buffalo and cheetah hunting impala (the...

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
