This award-winning eco-lodge is located in the dry sand forest of Phinda Private Game Reserve. Torchwood trees surround the lodge to create a delicate and secluded ambience. Designed to minimize their ecological footprint, the 16 suites are built on stilts, which allows tiny duiker and suni antelope to graze. The glass, wood and rich fabrics used as part of the ‘Zulu zen’ style decoration ensure that the lodge is perfectly integrated in the natural environment. You will wake up to a festival of the senses: delight in bird songs, contemplate the play of light through the leaves and open the doors to take in the smells of the forest from your private viewing deck. Even indoors, you are one with the trees, as the floor-to-ceiling glass walls bring the tranquility of the forest to your room. For dinner, let yourself be charmed by a table set on the open-air dining deck with panoramic views over the grassy plains and a warm fire to light up the evening. Your en-suite bathroom has a large bathtub where you can laze around in foaming soap before revitalizing yourself by a plunge in the lodge’s swimming pool.
