  • Overview
  • Enquire


Phinda Forest Lodge was designed with conservation and architectual splendour in mind. There are 16 hand-crafted suites which feature rim-flow swimming pools, dining and sitting areas and viewing decks with panoramic views of the surrounding area. The lodge has been built in the midst of a rare sand forest.


Wake up to the sight of graceful nyala and duiker browsing in the foliage of the Sand Forest right outside the glass walls of your private suite. Inventively designed in what is often called "Zulu-Zen", each suite is a combination of glass, wood and minimalist design incorporating high-gloss wooden floors and crimson Zulu artifacts.

Delicious Pan-African cuisine is served to you on the deck overlooking the grassy plains or in the boma (outdoor dining area) illuminated by dozens of candles and lanterns. Enjoy adventurous breakfasts and romantic dinners in spectacular African safari locations.
