This was the 3rd of our 9 lodge safari tour of July 2016! The Mountain Lodge was pleasantly surprising. The pictures on the web do not do it justice. It's a lot more luxurious than the pictures you see on the web. A special shout-out to Nikki, Musa and Ayanda! Very memorable stay and we hoped to have stayed longer....

While we say the big 5 in first couple of days the big highlight were the specials in the stunning and varied terrain. Examples of highlights: successfully tracking Narina Trogon through a forest, spotting the scarce suni, bush pig, tonga red squirrel, and...

Phinda is a reserve that we like to get back to at least every two years. It has 6 camps and 4 distinct ecosystems yielding such a variety of game and different experiences. On this visit we chose Mountain Lodge as it is truly child and family friendly, with daily activities planned for children. We were warmly welcomed as usual...

Firstly, the lodge itself - the lodge has stunning views across the mountains where you can see for miles. We stayed in room 20 which was a short walk away from the main area.

The Phinda private reserve provides excellent wild life viewing in an extensive and varied landscape. There are two game drives each day, accompanied by expert rangers, my party had memorable encounters with the famed "big five" and numerous other species. The mountain lodge is spectacularly situated on a high point with fine views over the surrounding landscape. The accommodations are...

Firstly, the safari is just spectacular. The rangers accompanying us were very very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. We travelled in a large group. They organise two safaris per day and it is totally your money's worth( even though it is very expensive!!) We have many many close encounters with the big 5 and fabulous photo ops.

Very large game reserve with many and diverse types of fauna and flora.

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
