Overlooking a busy waterhole, the small and exclusive Phinda Zuka Lodge delivers an intimate, flexible safari experience in KwaZulu Natal's fantastic Phinda Resource Reserve. Your group will be given a dedicated vehicle and private ranger who will help you to tailor-make your safari experience to your requirements.

You decide the time to go on twice-daily game drives, head off on guided bush walks or enjoy motor boat safaris down the Mzinene River. Add variety to your safari experience with an optional trip to the nearby Indian Ocean where you can discover the abundant marine life on snorkelling and scuba diving excursions.

Traveller Reviews

  • This was our sixth safari holiday and we have stayed in 8 different lodges and we feel that the time spent with you at Zuka was the most enjoyable and memorable of them all. This is entirely due to the team effort of the whole Zuka family.

  • It was great; homely and we were well looked after. The staff African dance and song evening was a great treat and a very nice touch!
