Phinda Private Game Reserve
Nestled in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, Phinda is different from your ordinary safari destination. Here, the Big Five roam freely through the vast 286 km² (110 mi²) landscape, and the sunsets paint the skies with vibrant hues that will leave you breathless. It’s a place where the untamed meets luxury, and where every bush whispers secrets of untold wildlife encounters.
Picture yourself in an open-top Land Rover, the wind in your hair, and the African sun warming your skin as you traverse the lush savannas and dense forests. Elephants march gracefully, lions cast their majestic gaze, and rhinos graze without a care in the world, all while their beauty and charisma spellbind you.
But the magic of Phinda extends far beyond its wildlife. You’ll find yourself in luxurious lodges, where the stars above are your canopy and the sounds of the wild are your lullaby. Wake up to the dawn chorus of birds, savour gourmet meals under the starlit African sky, and feel the primal connection to the land as you walk in the footsteps of Africa’s most iconic creatures.
