True African hospitality lies at the core of &Beyond's lodges and camps throughout the continent. The people of Africa, with their warm and welcoming nature and the ability to draw guests into their hearts, inspire, educate and enchant our guests every day.
A shared passion for creating extraordinary guest experiences unites all &Beyonders across Africa. For the staff members at &Beyond Phinda Forest, there is no better way to spend the day than in making our guests' safari dreams come true. Our chefs, butlers, housekeepers, security and workshop staff are trained with the same dedication as our field staff, but their pleasure in sharing your special moments is something that cannot be taught. They are the magic ingredient at &Beyond Phinda and their commitment to creating moments that take our guests' breath away is genuine.
&Beyond is renowned for having some of the most highly trained, professional, passionate and knowledgeable rangers and trackers on the continent. They have a passion for people and wildlife, ensuring unbeatable interpretive safari experiences. Our rangers at &Beyond Phinda Forest impart an incomparable wealth of knowledge, personally researched and experienced, about local habitats, ecology, birds, trees, plants, small animals and insects. Many of our rangers and trackers belong to the surrounding communities and can share cultural information with our guests.
The Very Best Training
&Beyond runs three full-time ranger training schools headed by professional ranger trainers in Africa. Each ranger at &Beyond Phinda undergoes a rigorous training course at one of these schools before joining the team. They then receive further on-site training and benefit immensely from their colleagues' ongoing mentorship. It is through their passion for what they do, and their desire to develop and learn that &Beyond's guides are among the finest in the world.
Cradled in a maze of ancient vegetation, each air conditioned suite provides serene, reflective spaces to watch the secrets of the forest unfold.
They say that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones and that is certainly true at &Beyond Phinda Forest Lodge.
