Phinda Vlei Lodge

Phinda Vlei Lodge found in the north of Phinda is a modern lodge with open views over the grasslands. 

Phinda Vlei - The Details

Vlei lodge, like Forest lodge is set in the north of the reserve; however unlike Forest lodge it is not set in the forest itself which means that the lodge feels a lot more open and less claustrophobic. The lodge looks over the open vlei (open grassland) where cheetah can sometimes be seen hunting. A lodge where you can see cheetah hunting is very rarely found throughout the whole of Africa, so this is a really unique plus which sets this lodge apart from so many others. 

The six rooms are very luxurious and each has its own plunge pool... Imagine enjoying the last of the African heat of the day with a glass of bubbly, whilst suddenly a rukus begins in the plains in front and you are watching some completely Attenborough-esque scenes of true African wildlife... It is not certain of course, but the opportunity is there... 

This is a great lodge if you are travelling as a couple or on a honeymoon and looking for that truly luxurious, splash-out, one of a kind experience. The composition of the camp lends itself very well to suiting all your safari needs - privacy in your rooms, exceptional game viewing (sometimes from your room!) and also that bit of luxury which is a very welcome thing for most...

Phinda Vlei Lodge - Reviews

Absolutely loved our time at Vlei Lodge, our ranger Matt was brilliant and all the staff so friendly and helpful.  Our room was fantastic and we even had elephants drinking from our pool one of the mornings and could see Cheetahs from our deck on another.  The team at Vlei pulled out all the stops for our honeymoon, we could not have asked for more. Truly amazing
