South Africa / andBeyond Phinda Forest Lodge

It’s surprising how private one can feel when staying in accommodation with floor-to-ceiling glass walls. That’s because Phinda Forest Lodge is raised on stilts to float among the dense forest canopy, the leaf-filtered light throwing dappled shadows onto the stylish minimalist interiors, perhaps best described as Zulu Zen. It’s a joy to wake to the sounds of birdsong and glimpse the darting forms of tiny duiker and suni antelope below. Every effort has been made to create a homestead that’s perfect for families and couples alike, with impeccable personal attention, high levels of comfort and excellent culinary presentations throughout the day – don’t miss the fabulous sorbets at lunchtime. Being Big 5 country there are regular sightings of nature’s top beasts, while you can also experience black rhino tracking on foot, sea diving and fascinating river trips when water levels permit. Big cat lovers will have good opportunities to the see cheetah and leopard at close quarters.

More about our prices

When is the best time to visit South Africa?

A year round destination, but expect cooler weather in the Eastern and Western Capes during winter, between June and August. Mpumalanga stays warm year round with temperatures, humidity and rainfall all increasing in the summer months between October and March. The whales return to the waters around Hermanus from July to November, and the spring months of August and September are particularly colourful along the Garden Route. The prime time for game viewing is generally the drier winter and spring months from April to September when animals frequent the waterholes. During the wetter summer months between October and March, animals can still be viewed but are more widely dispersed – from December to February there may be more sightings of newborn animals.
