&Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve
At &Beyond Phinda Vlei Lodge simply spending time in your spacious suite is like being on safari. With each suite carefully positioned for a prime view of the animals coming out to drink and panoramic vistas from even your shower or bathtub, the game viewing never stops!
When you first set eyes on the ochre walls of &Beyond Phinda Rock Lodge clinging to the cliff face you’ll need a second look to realise you haven’t arrived at a Mexican hacienda. While the rugged adobe-style building wouldn’t be out of place in a desert pueblo, the lush bushveld vegetation and the wildlife dotted on the surrounding slopes leave you in no doubt that you’re in the middle of Africa.
Kruger National Park
While &Beyond Ngala Tented Camp never lets you forget that you are in the wild, there is nothing primitive about this chic and contemporary camp.
