Phinda Private Game Reserve is often referred to as the ‘Seven Worlds of Wonder’ due to its green environment that contains seven distinct ecosystems. The reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife, including Africa’s Big 5, and is best known for its large population of cheetah and black rhino. Your stay at Phinda Mountain Lodge is made all the better with each room offering an elegant ensuite bathroom, private seating area, spacious verandah, outdoor shower, and private plunge pool overlooking the reserve. Al fresco dinners are enjoyed in the traditional stone and reed boma, with a large sparkling rim flow pool, state-of-the-art gym, and massage sala for those relaxing days in the bush.
