Phinda Forest Lodge

&Beyond’s Phinda Forest Lodge is located in the KwaZulu-Natal Province, within the Phinda Reserve.

Phinda Forest Lodge is a gorgeous camp, uniquely designed with an Asian influence: glass-walled bungalows are nestled into the unique sand forest and lush woodlands. It is very different from the traditional safari camps; more cool and romantic, completely enclosed in the peaceful forest.

The views are limited, and if you are looking for the sunny stretches of open bush plains then rather choose Phinda Mountain Lodge, which is comparably priced.

We love the common areas and the whole camp feels intimate and unique. If possible, look at spending 2 nights at Forest and 2 at Mountain Lodge to get a more complete itinerary. Game viewing at any of the Phinda lodges is excellent and we appreciate the wide variety of experiences available in the concession’s 7 unique ecological zones.
