The ultimate guide to your next Phinda Game Reserve Safari

Get to Know Phinda Game Reserve

This prestigious 230-square-kilometre private reserve reliably produces good sightings of lion, cheetah, elephant, rhino and other wildlife over the course of a couple of days

Phinda, the largest private reserve in northern KwaZulu-Natal, provides an exclusive guided game viewing experience comparable in style and quality to the legendary private reserves bordering the Kruger Park. All the Big Five are present, including the endangered black rhino. Phinda is also home to plentiful white rhino, but the biggest local specialty is cheetah, which tends to be very habituated, allowing for great close-up behavioural viewing.
