We stayed at Phinda Mountain Lodge for the safari portion of a safari-and-beach holiday, and it was truly wonderful. The lodge is beautifully designed, the rooms are private and comfortable - that bathtub! those views! - and the game-viewing is excellent. Phinda Mountain Lodge's chef is superb: the food is fresh, delicious and varied, and the kitchen easily accommodated our...

We spent 14 days in South Africa and Mozambique for our honeymoon and our time at Phinda Mountain Lodge was by far our favorite. The accommodations were incredibly private and well-serviced. We spent every night with the windows open so we could enjoy the sounds of wildlife. We arranged many of our honeymoon activities around food and the food at...

We had a tough time selecting the perfect setting for our 25th anniversary trip to Africa because Africa is not an inexpensive destination. We found that many areas were incredibly high priced but only offer accommodations that looked like they were pulled out of an old dated 3 star Cuban hotel and transplanted to Africa! We also did not want...

We stayed at Mountain Lodge and Amy was our Ranger and Malusi was our Game Tracker. They were both wonderful and we had fantastic viewings of elephant and cheetah which were the animals our party most wanted to see. Our accommodation was lovely and we only wished we had more time to enjoy it as we only booked one night....

Our family (3 generations) stayed at Mountain Lodge for 3 nights. We were all so well looked after - especially our kids who enjoyed their morning activities with Steph and their afternoon game viewing with the adults. The accommodation is lovely and the game viewing was great, as always in Phinda. Breakfast and lunch spectacular. Dinner didn't stand out as...

The lodge has a great location on top of a prominent hill quickly accessable from their private airstrip. Rooms are very good with excellent views and private plunge pools to cool off. The main communal area is very nice with comfortable furniture and open bar area makes one feel right at home. Food was also very good and we were...

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
