PHINDA GAME RESERVE
Phinda Private Game Reserve can be found in Northern KwaZulu-Natal and is set on 29 866 hectares of protected wildlife land. The safari experience is exceptional with riveting game drives led by expert rangers, Big Five wildlife roaming the ever-changing landscapes, and the chance of seeing hundreds of bird species and other animals large and small. This is one of the best places in South Africa to view cheetahs (the fastest land mammal in the world) close-up. Phinda also prides itself in its conservation efforts and guests can request to get involved in extraordinary conservation experiences (Rhino dehorning; Elephant conservation; Pangolin Conservation) for an additional fee.
The reserve offers accommodation at six luxurious lodges, each of which has unique features that appeal to every traveler. This is one of the most popular reserves in South Africa, frequented by locals and internationals alike so we recommend booking well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Phinda can be accessed by chartered flight onto the reserve’s private airstrip or by road. The driving distance to the reserve is 3.5 hours from Durban or a 7-hour drive from Johannesburg. Most of our guests opt to fly into King Shaka International Airport then request a road transfer from the airport to the reserve (approximately 3 hours).
