Sleep and dine among the forests in luxury here in┬áthe Maputaland region of KwaZulu-Natal. Set in a rare and beautiful dry sand forest in the north of the Phinda Private Game Reserve, the lodge is a marriage of conservation and architecture, carrying as light a footprint as possible. They call the style “Zulu Zen”, with the suites on stilts and exhibiting minimalist design, with Zulu artefacts, wooden textures and plenty of glass so that the nature outside is never far from sight.

Stay in one of the 16 private stilted suites, each with a luxurious ensuite bathroom. Take dips in the rim-flow swimming pool or relax on your viewing deck or in the lodge sitting areas, watching the forest creatures, like the nyala, duiker and red tonga squirrel, and passing game on the plains.

Meals times get a spruce with boma dinners in the outdoors to the light of candles and lanterns and breakfast in the bush. Get a little more adventurous on game drives in open 4×4 vehicles and bush walks, go birding or, for something totally unique and memorable, go Black Rhino tracking. How about riverboat cruises and canoeing along the Mzinene River? Phinda also offers specialised Photographic Safaris for the camera-fundis out there…
