Our daughter and her fiancé had decided to get married in a somewhat different location and, after some thought , decided upon Phinda Zuka lodge where we could combine the benefits of a very good safari lodge with many wild animals which could be seen in close up with a stupendous setting for a wedding on a hilltop some 10...

Nothing prepared us to Zuka. Not the recommendations we read, and not their site. It was a life-changing experience for us, and I am not exaggerating. Yes. the lodge is beautiful, the service is to-write-home-about, and the feeling was like we were part of a "return to Africa" movie. But it wasn't that. It was the total experience of viewing...

Breathless. Our group (2 families of 4) loved every minute at Zuka lodge and left in tears. The setting is breathtaking, and Phinda private game reserve was even better than Sabi Sands for our animal sightings. This small lodge (a home with two living areas and a kitchen, plus 4 private bedroom / bath structures) was perfect in every way....

We liked the look of this lodge and the swimming pool was a big bonus for us, we were advised that Zuka is really for a group of friends or family but we thought we would have a look for maybe coming out with a group of friends next year. The bedrooms are really nice and the swimming pool is...

Zuka Lodge is a lovely small lodge maintained at the andBeyond standard for amenities. Food was excellent, and the game sightings are very, very good - cheetah, lions, giraffe, black rhino, a very shy leopard, plenty of antelope, wildebeest etc. Was lucky enough to see a bachelor herd of elephant swimming and playing in the dam. Rooms are very nice,...

Magical stay at Zuka. Small and very personalised lodge. Totally comfortable surroundings. Really does feel like your home. Mesmerising waterhole. So much going on there. Always a new animal or bird coming to visit. Great food. Game drives, saw lion kill, cheetahs on the hunt and a close encounter with a black rhino! All made come even more alive by...

It is never easy travelling with kids and I am always so conscious of them being noisy at mealtimes or disturbing other hotel guests. Especially in the bush which is a place of quiet. So ZUKA LODGE was a fantastic fit for 2 families as has 4 well decorated, luxurious rooms (each with separate entrance) and so you have the...

This was my 2nd visit to Phinda but my first to the Zuka lodge. This time we spent 3 nights and took 3 of the 4 lodges for the family. Phinda provide a fantastic welcoming and we had arrived by small plane, we were picked up by our ranger & tracker and driven to the lodge. Plenty of wildlife to...

The team at the lodge were excellent but even better were the rangers and trackers. Through some persistence we saw everything we hoped to, but always with learning and respect to the animals themselves. Wonderful experience.

A very special lodge! We had exclusive use of this 4 bedroom lodge, thereby lending a very relaxed and flexible schedule. Sitting on our verandas and watching the elephants, warthogs and nyala come to the watering hole was truly special. The staff was very accommodating and attentive. Mark and Seme, our guide and spotter, did an outstanding job of showing...
