This was my second visit to Phinda Mountain Lodge. The first time my darling husband took me there for my 70th birthday. He passed away in 2013 and Christmas has never been the same since, so my daughter and I decided to spend Christmas at Phinda. I loved it the first time and this return visit was just as magical...

This was our second andBeyond experience. We had been at Ngala last year and had loved our stay so much that we wanted to return. We were a liitle bit afraid that the second time would not be able to keep up with the first experience but were proven to be wrong. We had heaven on earth. We loved the...

Start with the cool wet towels and drinks upon arrival... move on to the short walk down the winding path to a private bungalow. The accommodations are stunning. Big king sized bed with overstuffed down pillows overlooking a seating area indoors and outdoors on a private deck. The enormous bathroom has a separate bathtub that also sits in front of...

After spending time in the Kalahari at Tswalu and at Rattray's at Mala Mala Phinda mountain camp just missed the mark. Don't get me wrong, it is very nice but not at the summit.

Phinda should be an absolute must do for anyone that visits South Africa..We spent 2 nights at Kirkmans and 4 nights at Phinda Mountain Lodge and the combination was perfect! The rooms are essentially private cabins, which are spacious and cozy-- the beds are comfy with large bathrooms. The staff is wonderful, making sure you are very well taken care...

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
