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... More

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... More

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... More

Very few of the top game lodges that con accommodate a 30+ group for a corporate event. Great service/food/accommodation + superb game viewing. Staff went out of their way to arrange an amazing and memorable bush dinner. Great team building event enjoyed by all.

Service, food, accommodation and gaming experience are all superb. Please be aware though that this is one of the two larger lodges in &Beyond Phinda so more suited for families or business events. If you want intimacy then go for Vlei or Rock (my favourite).

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
