Visit Phinda Private Game Reserve, South Africa
Located on the edge of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, Phinda is regarded as a model of conservation.
Established some fifteen years ago, the 185 square kilometres of land had been extensively farmed.
Phinda returned to nature
However, through careful management and the reintroduction of indigenous species, it has been returned to its natural state and comprises seven separate ecospheres from savannah to the rare sand forest.
Game viewing is very good here.

Forest Lodge puts you in the heart of the famous Dry Sand Forest in rooms that are raised above the forest floor to minimise their ecological impact.
This is a very exclusive lodge, small, intimate and beautifully decorated: perfect for those looking for privacy and also for those who appreciate traditional African art and architecture.
Mountain Lodge sits atop one of the rolling summits in the hillier part of the Phinda Reserve, and from the central lodge decking there are great views out over the bush.
The modern, open feel of the rooms, and the proximity to the forest and vlei, make this a wonderful, unique place to stay. In addition, the small number of rooms and the space between them helps generate a feeling of real exclusivity.
