Phinda Zuka Lodge
Welcome to Phinda Zuka Lodge, South Africa!
Intimate exclusive-use Lodge: Surrounded by densely wooded hills and lush valleys, Phinda Zuka Lodge is situated in the western region of Phinda where, in what was a triumph for CC Africa’s conservation endeavours, fences were dropped after protracted negotiations with neighbours, increasing the Reserve by 3 500 hectares (8 650 acres).
Just four thatched Zululand bush cottages
Overlooking a busy waterhole
Private ranger/host, tracker, butler and chef
Sole use of an open 4x4 safari vehicle
Perfect for family gatherings and special occasion safaris
Meaning sixpence in Zulu, Zuka Lodge offers guests a new experience of
Phinda’s pristine wilderness. The Lodge’s four intimate cottages are set 15
metres (50 feet) apart, featuring verandas overlooking a busy waterhole where
a diversity of wildlife is regularly seen. Sitting areas feature built-in
sofas which double as beds for parents travelling with children 5 years and
younger. Bedrooms have air-conditioning and fans and are en suite, with a
circular stone bath chamber, double showers, separate w.c and twin hand
The exclusive-use Phinda Zuka Lodge is perfect for families or groups of up to eight people. Guest areas include an interactive café-style kitchen, indoor sitting and dining areas, an intimate library with Internet access and a swimming pool with extended wooden decking overlooking the waterhole. Comfortable cushions and suspended wicker chairs on the veranda allow for contemplation of the beautiful surroundings. Characterised by hues of blue and stone, emphasising shape and texture, the overall effect of the Lodge is that of cool, coastal bush style – the sophistication of simplicity.
Safaris, adventures and activities at Phinda: Tailormake your day by discussing your safari activities with your private ranger. Activities include morning and afternoon/evening game-drives in your private 4x4 safari vehicle, bush walks, riverboat cruises and canoe trips along the Mzinene River, as well as bush sundowners and dinners on the Reserve. Phinda also offers a variety of optional adventure activities, such as scuba diving and deep-sea fishing, and a range of specialist safaris.
