Phakela Lodge

Phakela Lodge has one of the most invigorating, wild and challenging atmospheres one could compress into a single destination. The dramatic beauty of the African wilds has been worn down over time by natural processes.

The peace and quiet is the perfect setting for a total relaxation experience.

We offer long leisurely game walks and game drives. Mountain bikes are allowed on the reserve. Lion can be viewed at the Lodge.

We provide the serenity and relaxation that comes from exploring the intricacies of the living ecosystem that will surround you and the exercise that comes from walking the untamed trails that abound in the pristine environment you will find yourself in.
