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. The camp has 25 accommodations which is a little bigger than we like. The game was good, a lot of Rhino ( white and black )...

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...

On holiday with the family, we had a great time at Phinda Mountain Lodge. We stayed there for three nights and saw all of the big five including a kill by a lioness and a kill by a cheetah. The diversity and density of animals kept it exciting all through. Great service from the staff at the lodge and amazing...

From the moment they meet you at the airport, handing you a drink and snack, to the dedication to find that elusive animal you want to see, to remembering you only have Bitter Lemon with you gin, this lodge is exceptional. The facilities are excellent, the food outstanding. But most of all, the staff really care.

I have always dreamed of going on safari and Phinda fulfilled that dream. We stayed 5 nights with 4 game drives and saw EVERYTHING. Lions and cheetahs feeding, baby giraffes suckling, wart hogs exiting there dens, elephant herds on the move, even baboons. I couldn't imagine anything better. Staff were incredible. We had three different Rangers - Lucky, Jonty and...

There are not a lot of places in the world that has everything going for it. The staff, the atmosphere, the food, the game drives, the spa treatments. Phinda mountain lodge is truly a example of how things should be done. If you ever want to treat yourself. Stop browsing and simply come here.

Christine Ross with &Beyond helped me plan our 10 day safari for myself, son (11 years old) and husband. I highly recommend her, she responded to all my emails within 24 hours. I was interested in doing the whale shark excursion and mentioned this to her. I asked if we were guaranteed to see them, she was honest with me...

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
