Phinda Forest Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

Phinda Private Game Reserve offers an incredible diversity of game. Predators like cheetah, leopard and lion are tracked on a daily basis and guests stand a good chance of seeing them. The territorial white rhino favour waterholes and wallows. Herds of elephant and buffalo move throughout the reserve and are easily spotted. Impressive nyala antelope feed alongside impala and warthog. The bird life is prolific and an impressive 378 species have recorded in the area. Rudds apalis, Neergaards sunbird and pink-throated twinspot are endemic to the Maputaland region. Among resident birds in the Sand Forest are Narina trogon, African broadbill and square-tailed drongo. Trumpeter hornbill, white-eared barbet and golden-rumped tinkerbird gather at ripe figs. Explore the waters on canoe and boat cruises, and get a taste for Zulu culture on community visits. You can also choose to simply spend some time relaxing in your forest chalet or in the swimming pool, as you admire the surrounding views.
