If your one of those people who love the idea of a Safari, but aren't so keen on the whole tenting idea, then andBeyond Phinda Rock Lodge will be right up your alley.
Located in Zululand in the heart of South Africa, this lodge is so reclusive that it has its own private airstrip and only accommodates six groups at a time.
Set into a cliff face which overlooks Leopard Rock, andBeyond Phinda Rock Lodge boasts six different suits, each constructed from contoured stone, a earthy, soft grey palette, solid wooden shutters and doors which open onto a private plunge pool and a viewing deck. As if that wasn't enough, each room also includes spacious ensuite bathrooms and an outdoor shower.
Other amazing features include day and night game drives and specialist walking safaris, Zulu village tours, night turtle dives, scuba, safaris, an ocean safari and a black rhino tracking on foot.
So if sounds like a bit of you, you'd better get saving as this luxury lodge is going to set you back around $900NZD per night. But within these costs you will receive three meals a day, free transport to and from the airstrip, a private butler service, laundry, house wines and of course the main reason you are there - safari activities.
This place has us all wanting to use up all of our holiday leave pronto and get away from this cold weather!
