Phinda Forest is found in the north of Phinda set in the ancient Sand Forest and really lives up to it's name.
Phinda Forest- The Details
Set in the ancient and incredibly rare Sand Forest, this lodge has a completely different feel to any other safari lodge you will find in Africa. The lodge has a fairly modern feel to it with a very open main area with a large breakfast bar and dining room that leads straight onto the deck. The modern feel is tasteful however, and really exemplifies a very different accommodation experience here in Phinda.
The 14 rooms at forest lodge also have a modern feel to them, they are all tucked back into the forest and instead of bricks and mortar the walls are made of glass allowing you to look into the forest from every angle. There’s a real zen feel at this lodge and the views and open spaces only add to this feeling of being in the complete wilderness.
The rooms do not have individual plunge pools, but a nice communal pool an open grassland. There is a boma at this lodge too which makes for a fine evening of sitting around the campfire exchanging stories of the days excitements.
