Wow! And yes, I'm not easily wowed if you've read any of my other reviews. This is a gorgeous place, a special location with interesting ecosystems, and fantastic service. The rooms are little houses, totally separate from each other out in the bush, beautifully decorated and appointed, kind of a Japanese zen style, no detail has been missed. I wish I had more time to spend there but we were only at Phinda for 2 days. The game drives were amazing, our driver and guide, Fred, was so knowledgeable and personable, we wanted to take him home with us. We learned so much about the bush and the animals. The food was definitely 5 star, my only complaint was that I ate way too much, just couldn't resist. Highly recommend this experience, every employee was sweet and lovely, the place is wonderfully done and the game drives were truly something to cherish and remember.
"Great Safari with gorgeous lodges"
We spent two nights but regretted not staying 4. Game drives were well organised with knowledgeable driver and ranger. Missed the Leopard this time but means I have to return Dinner and drinks were served in sand forest which was good and we were joined by our ranger. Lots of good food during the day to avail of. Bedroom was very private and waking up to baby impala outside your window is only pleasant distraction.
This was such a great experience that I don't even know where to start from in order to describe it... The "room" is a gorgeous huge lodge in the middle of the forest, quite hidden from the other ones, with a great veranda, big bed and unbelievable bathroom, with shower and standing bath. The staff is friendly and takes care of everything. Food is good, but if you are lucky you may have the chance to have the bush dinner: at the end of the night game you end up in a small area in the bush, surrounded by big trees and the nature, a big campfire and candle lights, and your dinner ready for you: a wonderful experience. Coming to the game drives, we had a very experienced guide (Barry), who, together with the tracker, was able to spot all the Big 5, plus those animals that we wanted to find. Sometimes you really have the feeling that they are chasing an animal and what a thrill when you finally find it! Last note, if you plan to stay more than 3 days consider to split your staying into at least 2 of the different areas, like forest and mountain, as they are completely different at the level of accommodation and environment.
Forest Lodge is stunning. The glass walls give you a feeling of being within the forest but still private. Game drives were great! I stayed 3 nights, and over the course of 6 drives, saw a pride of lions, cheetah (mother and two cubs), rhinos, giraffe... one of my favorite memories is sitting with a drink in hand in the lounge area and watching a giraffe bend down to drink from a watering hole :) Even tracked a leopard after dark! Food and drinks were fine, not gourmet... but I was there to be in the forest and see animals, and Phinda was beyond expectations
"Thanks &Beyond Phinda for a memorable engagement."
What a fantastic lodge!! The rooms, service, Staff and food were absolutely awesome. Our game drives were amazing as we saw all the big 5 as well as 3 leopards. Thank you to all the staff at Phinda Forest Lodge who were involved with arranging the perfect engagement for my new fiance.
