Phinda Rock Lodge - South Africa | Hotel Review

5 Star, Luxury Safari Resort in South Africa


Phinda Rock Lodge - South Africa - On the BOMBASTIC scale, Phinda Rock Lodge is off the page. To say rugged luxury would be an understatement. To say Atomic Bombastic would just about get it right.

Marnie and her staff greeted us when we arrived. Being treated like royalty would be a good description. After the long flight in the four-seater plane from Sangita, the wet towels and cold drinks were welcome signs of good things to come.

We were escorted down to the end room, the honeymoon suite, and let me tell you, the pictures do not do it justice.

The room, rugged but beautiful; simple but elegant. The seating area inside didn't match the unrivaled beauty we experienced outside, but the view from the bathtub more than made up for that. Imagine, lying in a hot bath, sipping champagne, soft music from the I-Pod playing in the background and gazing out over Leopard Rock and the Phinda Valley below.

The shower, oh the shower, let me tell you about the shower it's located at the end of the suite OUTSIDE! There is something about taking a shower in the middle of nature looking down at the valley below hearing the monkey's screech, no, not at me, just being at peace, one with nature. For those that do not want to get that in-touch with nature, there is a shower inside too.

Game viewing was superb. Philip our guide/ranger was fantastic bombastic He made sure we saw the big five, even the rare Black Rhino. Friendly, knowledgeable, patient with all our questions and very customer oriented, he made sure our visit was special.

Whether it was breakfast on the deck by reception, the Thursday night dinner in the woods with the other guests, a private dinner on our own deck or just the evening lunch and dinners on the main deck, they were all without question, BOMBASTIC. Plus, they always served more food than one should eat in a day.

They pushed us hard; up early for the morning drive, then early afternoon for the evening drive and sundowners and then back for dinner until late in the night. They kept us busy but pampered us all the way.

Phinda Rock Lodge and the Staff - BOMBASTIC!

If you want five star service and luxury accommodations, this is the safari lodge for you.

I cannot wait to go back some day
