Phinda Rock Lodge was built in Malian influenced adobe style that blends into the rocky cliff setting, each suite enjoys views over the valley. Solid wooden shutters and doors open onto a private viewing deck with its own plunge pool dramatically perched over the precipice, from where guests can view game drinking at the waterhole below or watch the abundant bird life in the surrounding trees. Deep bath tubs enjoy the same views over Leopard Rock and some suites also have outdoor showers.Enjoy the evening gathering at Phinda Rock Lodge around the fire in the guest area and a Pan-African banquet in a family atmosphere with fellow guests, or savour the romance of a candlelit dinner served in your suite. The surprise of a bush dinner on nights around a camp fire under the stars is also a highlight.
Renowned for its pioneering conservation, Phinda Reserve offers exceptional game viewing in its seven diverse habitats.
