Phinda Vlei Lodge

Phinda Vlei Lodge is situated in the 28,555 hectare Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal region. The reserve encompasses an impressive seven diverse ecosystems and an extraordinary range of wildlife, including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino.

Accommodation & Facilities
Phinda Vlei Lodge is a stylish and intimate lodge with just six beautiful thatched rooms. The air-conditioned rooms have en-suite bathrooms with outside showers, dressing rooms, and private plunge pools on the wooden verandahs. The atmosphere in this elegant lodge is both exclusive and personal with a mixture of understated sophistication and luxury. Both the rooms and the raised dining deck have views across the open grassy vlei where zebras, antelope and even herds of elephant can be seen grazing.

Wildlife & Activities
In addition to day and night wildlife drives with highly knowledgeable &Beyond rangers and trackers, guests can enjoy bush walks. Rhino tracking, notching and elephant collaring are also offered on a limited basis at an additional cost. Phinda’s proximity to the Maputaland coastline means that guests can enjoy beach activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and beach picnics.

Horse riding is also on offer, along with visits to local villages, viewing turtle nesting sites, and sleep outs. Many of these activities are subject to additional fees, and can be arranged and paid for locally; several of them are for children of 12 years and upwards; please ask us for more details.
