    “Perfect in every way”

    What an amazing place! What can I say about it except that it is perfect in every way.
    We had 3 nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff do everything possible to ensure you have a wonderful stay, there were all sorts of surprises for us during our trip, from a special candlelight dinner out in the bush to a champagne stop in the middle of our evening safari!
    The rooms are beautiful with every conceivable comfort (including ice and lemon for a G&T), we didn’t get to use our plunge pool as the weather wasn’t great, but it was lovely just to watch the birds come down and bathe in it.
    The safaris were fantastic with a very knowledgable spotter and guide (you keep the same ones throughout your stay), who do everything possible to find creatures you want to see. I can’t praise them highly enough.
    The food was excellent and plentiful, with special diets catered for easily and without fuss.
    A truly magnificent place to stay. Thank you Phinda Rock Lodge, we loved our stay with you.

    “Spectacular game viewing”

    My wife and I stayed at Phinda rock lodge in July 2016. On the way to the lodge from the front gate, we saw elephant, warthog, zebra, rhino wildebeest and impala! Then standing at the entrance to the lodge itself was a giraffe, almost as if he was welcoming us. This was just an indication of what was to come on the Game drives. The game ranger (Wessel) was the consummate professional, Knowledgeable and entertaining.
    All the staff were a pleasure to deal with, I cant recommend Phinda highly enough if you are looking for a game viewing experience. I probably wouldn’t go in July again though, as it was very cold on the early morning drive!

    “Simply Amazing!”

    Our family all stayed at Rock Lodge for my husband’s 60th birthday in May and I cannot put into words the little bit of magic we all shared. We had, in our opinion, the best ranger/tracker team in Nikki and Musa who went out of their way to provide a safari experience that we believe will never be equalled. They became part of our family for that short time. We saw animals in their natural habitat so ridiculously close up and the footage we have amazes everyone. Everything we asked to see we saw; lions with Cubs, elephants playing in watering holes, cheetah sleeping feet away from the jeep, leopard right in front of us, buffalo, rhino, etc The accommodation, the service, the food, was all first class. Everybody attended to all of our needs to make the experience so special. This safari experience is in a class of its own, and we have done many, we really cannot recommend it highly enough. If you get the opportunity to book a holiday here grab it with both hands.

    “Great Lodge”

    We’ve just made our second trip to Rock Lodge and hopefully there will be more trips to follow! Accommodation, food and facilities are superb – Obed and his team cater to your every whim! Ranger Clive and Tracker Pat are so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and seemingly capable of finding any animal you want to see! The whole experience from arrival to departure is 5 star.
