An intimate and exclusive lodge, Phinda Zuka Safari Lodge in South Africa is situated in the western region of Phinda where the fences have been removed, increasing the Reserve by 3 500 hectares (8 650 acres).
Meaning sixpence in Zulu, Zuka Lodge offers guests a new experience of Phinda's pristine wilderness. Zuka Lodge's KwaZulu-Natal accommodation has 4 intimate cottages set 50 feet apart, featuring verandas overlooking a busy waterhole where a diversity of wildlife is regularly seen. Bedrooms have air-conditioning, fans and en-suite facilities, with a circular stone bath chamber, double showers, separate w/c and twin hand basins.
Zuka's KwaZulu-Natal accommodation is for exclusive use, meaning you can book it for the sole purpose of your family gatherings or groups traveling together.

Comfortable cushions and suspended wicker chairs on the veranda allow for contemplation of the beautiful surroundings. Characterized by hues of blue and stone, emphasizing shape and texture, the overall effect of the Lodge is that of cool, coastal bush style - the sophistication of simplicity.
