We stayed at Phinda (mountain lodge) for 3 nights with our 3 children (ages 5 to 12). The accommodation is very clean, well equipped and beautiful. The staff including our on vehicle staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was lovely although I think the breakfast and lunch could have been more child friendly. Also there were no tea/coffee...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights with our two young children (7 and nearly 5). The Lodge is very nice and set on top of a little hill affording nice views from the main Lodge. This is the largest safari lodge we have ever stayed at (I estimate guest capacity at about 40), which did mean one...

We decided to treat our teen children to a safari experience and are grateful to have chosen Phinda Mountain Lodge -- can it get any better than this? From the moment we arrived we were treated as welcome, individual guests, and left feeling we had left a community. The atmosphere is peaceful and tranquil while at the same time welcoming...

Had an incredible stay at Phinda Mountain Lodge - large stylish suites, delicious food and friendly staff. The rangers were so knowledgeable and thoughtful and were great with our kids. Lots of little suprises like champagne in the bush and even the Easter bunny made an appearance. Excellent game viewing in stunning scenery. Highly recommend it.

We stayed in Phinda for 4 days in the middle of March and for us, this was a once in a lifetime experience... where do I start? The accommodation is outstanding, the rooms are great with beautiful views from your bed and even better views from your balcony & plunge pool. The free mini bar was stocked up twice a...

Initially we were disappointed we did not get the Forest Lodge. Our opinion changed after talking with friends who were staying there and they did not see the big five, some only saw two of the five. We were so blessed to have Sibo and Tom as our guide and tracker. Forty years experience at Phinda between them. They made...

This really is a wonderful lodge with attentive staff, from the time you arrive to the time you leave. It has a stunning position in the game reserve with uninterrupted vie s across the whole game reserve. The food is excellent, not too fussy but varied enough to make it interesting, the same with the wine choice. Without doubt, 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
