Phinda The Homestead
Phinda The Homestead is situated in the 22,000 hectare Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal region. The reserve encompasses an impressive seven diverse ecosystems and an extraordinary range of wildlife, including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino.
Accommodation & Facilities
Phinda The Homestead is a luxurious, sole-use villa, beautifully constructed from wood and thatch, and ideal for small groups or families. It comprises expansive sitting and dining areas and four generous suites, each equipped with ensuite facilities and decorated using a unique blend of contemporary chic and traditional African design. Nestled in the heart of the bush, The Homestead boasts stunning views which provide an atmosphere of utter tranquillity and seclusion, and delivers total privacy to its occupants, whether lounging on The Homestead’s vast decks or cooling off in the infinity pool. Guests are put further at ease by the presence of their own personal butler and chef who will cater to their every need, although the charm and beauty of The Homestead is sure to make guests feel at home regardless.
Wildlife & Activities
In addition to twice-daily vehicle based game drives with highly knowledgeable &Beyond rangers and trackers, guests can enjoy canoeing on the Mzinene River. Phinda's close proximity to the Maputaland coastline means that guests can also enjoy beach activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and beach picnics. The 'Flight of the Fish Eagle' offers guests a birds-eye view of the pristine Maputaland coastline and some of the highest forested sand dunes in the world, as well as the famed iSimangaliso Wetland Park (formerly known as the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park). Horse riding trips outside the reserve around the nearby Saint Lucia lake can also be arranged and paid for locally.
