&Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve

Nestled amongst a beautiful green landscape, &BeyondPhinda Private Game Reserve is the perfect place to get a little closer to South Africa’s wildlife. As well as a couple’s escape, the reserve is also perfect for family adventures with an array of action-packed activities designed specifically for children. Each of the exclusive lodges is incredibly stylish, and the ideal place to sit back and watch out for the lions, elephants, cheetahs and rhino roaming the land beyond.


Only a short drive away from the beautiful Indian Ocean coastline in Kwala Zulu Natal, the location of &Beyond Phinda means that you can combine safari adventures with beach tranquillity. The reserve is only a 30 minute trip to South Africa’s very first World Heritage site, iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which is a brilliant place to take to the waters for some unforgettable snorkelling and scuba diving experiences.

Your Room

With only six lodges, expect magnificent accommodation and excellent service, but within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Each beautifully designed lodge boasts amazing views of the wilderness whether it’s through glass walls, or from a pool deck terrace perched above the reserve. And while there is plenty of space for family groups, the lodges also offer a cozy lounge complete with a beautiful wood log fireplace for the ultimate romantic getaway.

Why we like it?

Stunning backdrops, lantern-lit dining, incredible views of wildlife and authentic yet luxurious living – there’s a lot to like and not much reason to leave your lodge. But trust us when we say there’s more to explore. The reserve offers fantastic activities from tracking black rhino with a knowledgeable ranger to swimming with whale sharks, so you’ll find plenty of options to enrich your African adventure.
