Kindly leave your contact information and holiday dates below and we’ll check the details for you. Sit back and relax as we plan your dream honeymoon.

Situated between two habitats, the forest and the grasslands, the glass walls of Phinda Forest Lodge offer a sweeping view of one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet. This Lodge is one of the world's first eco-designed luxury lodges. Floor to ceiling windows invite the forest in but the dense canopy provides privacy. The dainty forms of dwarf forest antelope dart among and below the suites, raised on stilts to float between the sandy forest floor and the leafy canopy above. Waking up to rustling forest sounds and bird song, surrounded by delicate leaf-filtered light, a pervading sense of peace and calm will set the tone for your entire day.

The creation of this award-winning safari lodge was an exemplary exercise in building eco-sensitive structures with a light environmental footprint (not one tree was felled during construction). Their designers have created a calming atmosphere of Zulu Zen. And there’s no need to worry about the privacy of your retreat – despite the floor to ceiling glass walls, the towering torchwood trees and fertile forest floor that surround your suite ensure a sense of seclusion.
The suites feature luxurious en-suite bathrooms with slate hand basins and viewing decks where guests can drink in the sight of graceful nyala and duiker in the dappled shade of the forest. The lodge’s sparkling rim-flow swimming pool, as well as the expansive decks in its seating area, looks out onto panoramic views of an open meadow where animals frequently graze. A traditional African BOMA is enclosed with a wooden fence and offers lantern-lit open-air dining beneath a canvas of stars. They say that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones and that is certainly true at Phinda Forest Lodge!

Phinda Game Reserve
Phinda Private Game Reserve encompasses an impressive 28 555 hectares (70 560 acres) of protected wildlife land in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Showcasing one of the continent’s finest game viewing experiences, &Beyond Phinda is home to Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), as well as 436 bird species. The reserve is particularly well known for close-up sightings of the elegant yet elusive cheetah, as well as the rare black rhino.
With its seven distinct habitats, Phinda is often described as ‘Seven Worlds of Wonder’, a magnificent tapestry of woodland, grassland, wetland and forest, interspersed with mountain ranges, rivers, marshes and pans. Home to 1 000 hectares of Africa’s remaining rare dry sand forest, the reserve is situated near the unspoiled
beaches and spectacular coral reefs of the Indian Ocean, offering an unmatched combination of bush and beach adventures.
