Phinda Private Game Reserve is a rich and diverse park that encompasses 28 555 hectares of protected wildlife land in Kwazulu-NataThe reserve is positioned between the Mkuze Game Reserve and the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park (a World Heritage Site), as well as being within easy reach of the Indian Ocean coastline. 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.

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.

When

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.

May to September
  • Animals are easily spotted as they gather at water sources and the vegetation thins
  • Most days are sunny and clear
October to April
  • Abundant foliage and lush landscapes
  • Baby animals can be seen
  • Migratory birds make for prime birding
  • Animals are easier to spot during the dry months
