Big 5 Game Viewing and 5* Luxury Lodges

Described as 'Seven Worlds of Wonder', the &Beyond run Phinda Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal has an abundance of riches to surpass every dream of an African safari.

© andBeyondOne of the finest game-viewing experiences, Phinda features not only the Big 5, but a plethora of other animals and birds within its 23,000 hectares, which encompasses 7 distinct habitats - dry sand forest, savanna, woodland and wetland systems, beautiful river courses, mountain ranges, marshes and pans.

Explore the pristine sanctuary of Phinda with a fascinating game drive, offered twice daily and accompanied by an experienced ranger and tracker team, eager to expand your knowledge of the wilderness and share in your wildlife encounter experiences. Explore on foot and get even closer to Phinda’s incredible diversity with an interpretive bush walk experience, or glide along the Mzinene River and experience the wild along tranquil, cool waters as you take in the vast wilderness around you.

Enjoy scuba diving adventures, a luxury walking safari, a black rhino tracking experience, horse riding trails in the bush, specialist birding or even take part in a leopard research specialist safari at an additional cost.

Phinda is home to 6 equally unique lodges that have been designed to complement the different habitats perfectly. Forest Lodge enjoys the dappled shade deep in the heart of a rare, dry sand forest, while Mountain Lodge boasts remarkable views out over the Reserve. Vlei Lodge, on the edge of the forest, overlooks the vast wetland, and Rock Lodge sits suspended over a deep valley below.

Phinda is also home to 2 sole-use safari villas, Zuka Lodge and The Homestead. Luxurious and intimate, these villas are the perfect 'home away from home' for families or small groups of friends sharing a safari together.
