Happy Guests
Our Guests love Phakela Private Safari Lodge
“Great hospitality, beautiful rooms and even better food. The personnel have mastered the art of being there and available, but not being intrusive. The lions are also a must see. We recommend Phakela to anyone wanting a relaxing and quiet breakaway. The chalets are very private, I would recommend no 6 if you’re looking for absolute privacy in a romantic setting.” Harold B

“We were incredibly lucky to spend new year 2017/8 at Phakela. Hilton and his staff were unbelievably accommodating in all of our requests and went way above and beyond to make it a special time for our family. The facilities are fantastic, food was excellent and the rooms luxurious. Thank you for a trusty memorable trip.” Michelle K
