The landscape is lush with grassy woodlands, and broad, sweeping mountain ranges. It is the home of the famous Big Five.
Phinda Private Game Reserve luxury lodges are among the best in South Africa or potentially even the world. &Beyond has longsince been known as one of the giants in the safari industry and have, over the years, become known for their incredibly high quality game rangers, their dedication to conservation and their five star service and style in their finely appointed yet natural luxury safari lodges. Phinda Private Game Reserve situated on the Eastern coast of South Africa hosts six such incredible lodges within this Big 5 reserve. From the more casual Phinda Mountain Lodge to the exclusive Phinda Homestead, there is a lodge for every traveler and for every Occasion at Phinda.
Phinda Private Game Reserve's unique meeting of riverine and rare sand forest habitats is home to a huge selection of wildlife, including lion, giraffe, white and black rhino, antelope, elephants, leopard, buffalo, cheetah, and wildebeest, as well as 415 bird species.
Phinda offers great wildlife viewing throughout the year, but the best months are during winter (May to September). During this time, animals are more easily spotted while they convene at permanent water sources, and the dry conditions cause the bush to recede. During the wet summer months, heavy rain can make off-road driving limited which can have an impact on animal sightings.
