So much fun. We loved this place so much - great guide STeve who made us laugh every day and found amazing things for us to see. Gorgeous dinner outside in the bush and another in the BOMA - very memorable experience.

Phinda was top notch in every respect and we felt very fortunate to be there and have such an amazing safari. The accomodation was beautiful and the children loved being able to have soft drinks from the minibar in their room! Our rooms were next to each other and you could easily get from one to the other on the outdoor landing. I think we'd have been happy with less 'high end' accomodation & service but it was the game drives with Sibu and Tom that made our stay exceptional. We loved seeing all the animals and the Guide's experience, knowledge and tracking skills were superb, enabling the children to see all of the big 5 after only two game drives as well as a leopard in the dark! We absolutely loved it and three nights here was the perfect ending to our special trip. Thanks.

The highlight of the trip. The rooms were beautiful and very well styled. The family adjoining wall was not well insulated and you could hear everything so not too much privacy for the parents. The 2xday safaris were incredible and the staff bent over backwards to surprise us at every turn. They even adapted the rules to accommodate our 4 year old on the game drives which was a thrill for us all. Our tracker Sefiso (local zulu) and our ranger Darryn made our experience at Phinda unforgettable. Their knowledge and talent at spotting animals from smells, tracks and dung were impressive. It is unusual to have young children on drives but all the staff did all they could to keep them entertained and throw in some activities to keep them busy (cooking, jeep painting, scorpion hunting). I would go back to this lodge in a flash especially as it is without an easy drive from Durban airport (2.5 hours).

It's somewhere we would return. The safaris were exceptional, the guides knew their stuff and worked hard to share their passion and enthusiasm. They so wanted you to experience the full potential of the game reserve. Again, we regret we didn't stay another night, just to hang out in such a lovely location. Again, like Xaranna it was the &beyond staff that made our stay - they especially worked hard with the children and anticipated every detail.
