An ideal family safari lodge, Phinda Homestead Lodge supplies modern luxury as it overlooks an extinct volcano and sits in the lush, verdant hills of Phinda Private Reserve.
A sole-use lodge, the camp consists of a private villa with four large suites. Each room is created around Zulu crafts with a contemporary flair. Large sliding windows provide panoramic views of the bush outside and gives a light and airy feel to the room. In fact, each plush double bed is positioned to face the windows. These en suite rooms feature an indoor and outdoor shower. An open deck complete with loungers covered in deep cushions and its own rim-flow pool offer open views and up close encounters with the wildlife, including thirsty elephants bent on drinking from the pool. Other amenities include fans, air-conditioning, in-room safes, Wi-Fi, and mini-bar.
The lodge is located in the Phinda Private Game Reserve, 23,000 hectares of natural beauty and abundant wildlife. The reserve sits between Mkuze Reserve and Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park, a World Heritage site, and is not far from the Indian Ocean. The lodge sits in a unique meeting of riverine and rare sand forest habitats which is home to a huge selection of wildlife, including lion, giraffe, white and black rhino, antelope, elephants, leopard, buffalo, cheetah, and wildebeest, as well as 415 bird species.
