Phinda Homestead - The Details
Set in the north of the reserve Homestead is a sole use lodge. It has four rooms as well as a nanny/pilot room. The lodge has a very open and integrated feel with the main area opening straight out on to the deck area and pool making it feel really intimate and cosy.
The main area has a very luxurious and modern sitting area and dining room and is also connected to an open plan kitchen where your personal chef cooks in plain view. One of the highlights of this lodge is that large elephant herds come and drink from the pool on a regular basis, quite a sight to behold when casually strolling through camp after a game drive...
There is a communal pool which acts as a nice focal point to the camp, and is still very welcoming even though there are no private pools in the camp.Whilst swimming you can also overlook the animals drinking in the waterhole below, making the whole experience very close to nature and the unbelievable African widllife which wanders around the surrounding area.
There is a boma and gym at this lodge too giving way for a welcome bit of exercise to burn off the delicious food of the night before, until the evening where you can watch the fire crackle and listen to the sounds of the bush.
