Family Travel at Phinda Mountain Lodge
Children are welcome at family-friendly Phinda Mountain Lodge, which boasts a Family Suite and a specialised children’s programme
A family suite and 3 family cottages are available at &Beyond Phinda Mountain Lodge. The exclusive use of a safari vehicle means that game drives can be tailored for the shorter attention span of younger children, leaving and coming back to the lodge at any time.
When not staying in the family suite or family cottages, game drives are available to children aged twelve years and older. Children aged six to twelve are permitted on game drives at the lodge manager’s discretion. While children younger than six cannot participate in game drives, childminders can be arranged during game drives and meal times at an additional cost.
&Beyond's WILDChild Programme
Designed especially for children visiting &Beyond’s lodges, WILDchild is filled with fun, interactive activities that offer opportunities to learn and discover new experiences and cultures. On arrival at &Beyond Phinda Mountain Lodge, each child will receive a WILDchild branded bag containing a logbook, crayons, pencils and a pawprint tattoo. There is a personalised welcome note for every child, with those under three getting an African-themed soft toy as well.
