We have some updates from all over Africa, exciting new things and offers for the whole family
Phinda rock lodge has a new look
Phinda rock lodge is set on the edge of a cliff and boasts six luxury suites, overlooking the valley below ensuring breathtaking views. The suites are made out of contoured stone and has a spacious bedroom with a large ensuite bathroom, huge tub and outdoor showers. Phinda is celebrating 20 years since its opening and what better way to reopen than with a new and updated look. The lodge has been completely refurbished to continually provide guest with luxurious holidays. The lodge décor now has grey tones and takes inspiration from the natural surroundings whilst also channeling elegance and style. The intimate and exclusive lodge has kept all its charm but added gorgeous touches like Persian carpets, woven linen and hand embroidered cotton. The windows in the suites have now been replaced by French doors that open out onto an extended outdoor verandah, and a rooftop dining area has been added to make dinners that that little bit more elegant. We are looking forward to getting more pictures from the new Phinda Rock Lodge.
