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
The lodge boasts an exclusive Family Suite that accommodates four additional children under the age of 16. 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. A private swimming pool is available for families to enjoy.
The lodge is also able to accommodate a limited number of triple rooms for families not staying in the Family Suite.
This means that, should parents wish to share a room with younger children, an additional bed will be set up in the parents’ room for children 16 years or younger.
When not staying in the Family Suite, 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.

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.
