Phinda Mountain Lodge

With wraparound views of the spectacular Ubombo mountain range and the surrounding Zululand bushveld, Mountain Lodge at &Beyond Phinda is a dramatic safari destination. 25 split-level suites crest the mountain’s edge, offering breathtaking raptor’s-eye views of the Reserve below.

Each luxurious suite boasts a private sitting area and spacious veranda complete with private plunge pool and outdoor shower. The guest area is a magnificent u-shaped building with a central al fresco courtyard that provides seductive comfort between exciting game drives. The intimate sitting areas are filled with sunlight and the dining area overlooks the Reserve with the Ubombo Mountains in the distance.

Delicious Pan African meals can be enjoyed in the remarkable stone and reed boma, romantically illuminated by dozens of candles and lanterns, or savored in a spectacular clearing in the bush under an umbrella of twinkling stars. Phinda is renowned for its bush banquets in unique, unexpected settings.
