Phinda Mountain Lodge
Country: South Africa
Location: Phinda, KwaZulu Natal
Style: Luxury Lodge
Poised on the crest of a mountain, Mountain Lodge commands a dramatic vista over the surrounding landscape and the Ubombo Mountains.
A total of 24 suites, each with airconditioning, outdoor shower and plunge pool, are positioned to ensure complete privacy while optimising the view from the private viewing decks and verandas.
Excellent game viewing in the early morning and late afternoon / evening and accompanied by an armed ranger and Zulu tracker promises you sightings of the Big 5 as well as the elusive cheetah.
Nature walks, birdwatching, riverboat cruises and canoeing along the Mzinene River are also on offer. At an additional cost many other excursions are available such as coastal flights, snorkelling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, turtle viewing, horse riding, and cultural visits.
Meals are served on the tiered veranda, in the covered dining room, or they can be unexpected treats in a surprise location.
As the camp is unfenced, you are requested to please be vigilant at all times and may not walk through the grounds at night unless escorted by a guard.
Access to Mountain Lodge is either by scheduled flights or road transfers.
