&Beyond Phinda Forest Lodge – Phinda Private Game Reserve
Set deep in the heart of a rare and beautiful dry Sand Forest, the spectacular Forest Lodge at &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve is a seamless fusion of architectural design and conservation. Not one tree was feeling during the creation of this award-winning safari lodge, an exemplary example of an eco-sensitive building with a feather-light footprint.
Inventively designed in minimalist Zulu-Zen style, each handcrafted, glass-encased suite is a combination of glass, wood and incorporates high-gloss wooden floors, richly tactile fabrics, and crimson Zulu artefacts. These 16 private, stilted suites each feature luxurious ensuite bathrooms and private viewing decks. Unwind in the lodge’s sparkling rim-flow swimming pool, or relax in the guest sitting areas with expansive viewing decks affording panoramic views of the game-filled plains. Visit the Safari Shop with its unique and colourful local Zulu artefacts. Dine in the traditional African boma, under an inspirational canvas of stars, candles and lanterns.
