KwaZulu Natal Game and Nature ReservesThe Phinda Private Game Reserve
Come face-to-face with lions and rhino before breakfast, swim with dolphins after lunch and catch a marlin before dinner - that's the Phinda experience, an exciting safari destination in South Africa.
Located between the azure waters of the Indian Ocean and the lush waterways of the World Heritage iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Phinda's 17,000 ha span seven unique ecosystems.
Phinda Private Reserve is situated in the lush KwaZulu Natal region in northern South Africa. Sandwiched between Mkuze Game Reserve and the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park (a World Heritage Site).
The Phinda Game Reserve comprises 14,000 hectares of prime conservation land. Seven distinct habitats shelter an abundance of wildlife including Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo) and over 380 bird species, while the marine diversity off the nearby coast of Sodwana Bay is said to rival the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Guests can look forward to exciting game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles led by experienced rangers and Zulu trackers, as well as thrilling optional activities on the water, in the air and on the beach.
