Holy cow! What an experience! We were so lucky...we were the only people staying at the lodge so we had it...and the staff...all to ourselves! The cabins (we had two, one for us, one for our daughter) were lovely. Spacious, comfortable beds, large bathroom with big shower and claw foot tub. There was also an outdoor shower but we didn't...

We just visited Phinda Zuka and as this was our first visit to so Africa we didn't know what to expect and were more than pleased. From Jonty and John our ranger and tracker we got to see more than we ever expected to see including a less than happy leopard that we tracked for 2 hours. The accommodations were...

We had a wonderful stay with Ian as our fearless guide. Staff were wonderful and made several special arrangements for us including a night under the stars and a cheetah experience. The wildlife at Phinda Zuka was beyond (&Beyond, perhaps) anything we expected. We followed cheetas, lions, elephants, giraffes, hippos and an abundance of rhino. My family loved it and...

My husband was looking for a special place to celebrate our anniversary. As lovers of the bush, we've always had Phinda on our radar, so he booked Zuka Lodge in it's entirety as we were travelling with his mother and our son who had just turned 2 years old. Our 6 day experience at Zuka Lodge was nothing short of...

I had the most amazing two days at the Zuka lodge! Everyone was dedicated to making sure I had a fantastic experience. I had my own private "room", complete with a huge bath, nice sitting area, comfortable bed and outside deck. The staff was so attentive without being intrusive. It was all about what I wanted to do.

Zuka Setting. The intriguing African bush dominates Zuka Grounds and Lodge. One watering hole---at least one hundred Phinda wild animals frequent the site daily. Some arrive sauntering on foot or hooves, some slither along the ground, others soar through the sky; all approach the site to eat, drink, bathe and linger. Animal Star Bucks equivalency! Our introduction to this gathering...

I've stayed in many 5 star hotels but staying at Zuka is probably what it's like to be a celebrity or millionaire. As a group of 7 we took over the whole lodge and nothing was too much trouble for all the lovely staff. From coming back after dinner to have all the candles lit around the luxurious soaker tub...
