About This Accommodation

andBeyond’s Phinda Vlei lodge in the Phinda Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal is an elegant luxury property built on the edge of a sand forest.

Tastefully decorated suites gaze out over the wetlands, and the view can be appreciated from anywhere in your room – your bed, the privacy of your own deck or while soaking in the plunge pool.

We love the bush meals around a blazing fire, with the sounds of the wild animals calling from a distance.

As with all andBeyond properties, service standards are excellent and you are assured of an extraordinary and varied safari in this Big Five reserve comprised of 7 different eco-systems.

We recommend spending 2 nights at Vlei Lodge and another 2 nights in a different Phinda camp on the otherside of the reserve such as Phinda Rock or Phinda Mountain to fully experience the different eco-systems that make this area so fascinating.
