  • Lodge
  • 6 Room/s

Located in Phinda Private Game Reserve, Rock Lodge is dramatically constructed on a cliff face, and looks out over the breath-taking valley below.

The most private of Phinda’s lodges, Rock, is a fascinating architectural construction, the stone and adobe structure, rough-hewn walls and wooden detailing provide a sense of adventure, and the alluring colours and textures of North Africa add to the romance.

Six spacious suites extend out to private viewing decks, and the plunge pools appear to be suspended over the lush wilderness below. Hidden within leafty shelters, the outdoors showers present guests with their own private waterfalls. Enjoy sumptuous meals in the lodge, or al fresco, around a blazing campfire.

With game drives, nature walks and river cruises there are plenty of opportunities to view Phinda’s wild inhabitants.

When it comes to destinations, KwaZulu-Natal is the epitome of diverse. Where tradition meets modernity and nature meets society, this region is something quite special.

Dry savannahs and mountainscapes sit alongside coastal towns, and offer the intrigued traveller an array of experiences to be enjoyed.

Visit the city of Durban and absorb its glory – Relax on the “Golden Mile” beachfront with its beckoning sands and cool blue waters; visit the Phansi Museum where you can marvel at traditional South African artefacts; head to one of the bustling markets and experience the town as it tantalizes your senses.

A tour of Shakaland is advised to experience and observe the day to day lives of the people living in a traditional Zulu village, and seize the opportunity to dine with the villagers and enjoy their tribal dancing.

iSimangaliso Wetland Park is an area of wetlands, forests, beaches and lakes all adorned by numerous land and sea animals, including turtles, hippos, antelopes and zebras. Although rather large, the park is definitely worth taking time to explore thoroughly, as is KwaZulu-Natal.
