Phinda is famous for its excellent sightings of the elusive but stunning cheetah as well as its work in rhino conservation. Often referred to as ‘Seven Worlds of Wonder’ Phinda benefits from seven distinct ecosystems making it a diverse and stunning reserve.
In excess of 400 bird species have been recorded at Phinda, so not only if it a perfect place for a Big 5 safari but also for the avid birders amongst us.
Located within the beautiful sand forest you’ll find sixteen air-conditioned suites, each with floor to ceiling glass walls. These glass encased suites are raised on stilts and appear to float on the forest floor. Each eco-sensitive suite was created without felling a single tree, and it’s these great trees and the fertile forest floor that provides the privacy.
Each suite boasts a king size bed, stunning bathrooms and unique views of the forest.
The main lodge has a sparkling rim-flow swimming pool along with an extensive viewing deck and seating area, which looks out onto panoramic views of an open meadow where animals frequently graze.
A traditional African boma allows guests to experience an authentic African dining experience.
Twice-daily game drives in open game drives vehicles and guided bush walks with a highly qualified ranger.
