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... More

Our welcome after a long drive was great, iced drinks and towels to revive us.

We saw lion hunting buffalo and cheetah hunting impala (the... More

Everything about this visit was perfect. The people, the view, the dinner. Everyday you fall into a new surprise that they have arranged for you. A bbq in the bush. A private dinner in our lodge.. No more words than: A DREAM LOCATION!

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
