A Private Safari Retreat in the Heart of the African BushKwaZulu Natal, South Africa

If relaxing in your very own secluded lodge while a herd of zebra or antelope graze nearby sounds like a dream come true, then Phinda Vlei Lodge is the place for you.

This andBeyond property is a true luxury African oasis, offering an intimate and romantic safari experience without having to leave the comfort of your accommodation.

Recently refurbished and boasting a strong, rich identity, Phinda Vlei Lodge’s fresh new interiors have been inspired by the elegant, turn of the century plantation-style homesteads of KwaZulu-Natal’s sugar cane and pineapple barons.

The main guest area features an impressive library, while the fire pit setting is the ideal location for pre-dinner drinks.

The interiors are an eclectic mix of curated antiques, collectibles and tapestries, accompanied by elegant crystal and silverware, while the all-weather dining deck has been extended to allow for covered al fresco dining with stunning views of the adjoining wetland.

Guests can enjoy air-conditioned comfort in each of the six thatched suites, which are designed to ensure exclusivity and privacy. There's also access to a dressing room and spacious ensuite bathroom, both of which ooze old-world opulence.

If that's not enough luxury for you, your stay at Phinda Vlei Lodge includes a personalised butler service, in-room massage options, three daily meals and all beverages, and transfers to and from the lodge airstrip.

The suites are situated on the edge of the sand forest and open meadow, meaning you'll never miss out on any of the wildlife action. So whether you’re unwinding in bed, taking a shower or cooling down in your private plunge pool, you’re guaranteed sweeping views of the ever-changing wildlife landscape.

 

  • Complimentary laundry
  • Personalised butler service
  • Wi-fi in guest area

Suites from US$764 per person, per night including three meals daily.
