We saw lion hunting buffalo and cheetah hunting impala (the...

Everything about this visit was perfect. The people, the view, the dinner. Everyday you fall into a new surprise that they have arranged for you. A bbq in the bush. A private dinner in our lodge.. No more words than: A DREAM LOCATION!

This was my second visit to Phinda Mountain Lodge. The first time my darling husband took me there for my 70th birthday. He passed away in 2013 and Christmas has never been the same since, so my daughter and I decided to spend Christmas at Phinda. I loved it the first time and this return visit was just as magical...

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
