&Beyond Phinda Homestead

It is with deep regret that we inform our guests that a fire broke out at &Beyond Phinda Homestead, on Friday, 16 December 2016. Unfortunately, the lodge has been rendered unusable. We will be bringing this enchanting safari villa back to life, with even more exceptional features, in 2018.

This in no way impacts the safari experience for those guests staying at any of &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve’s other five lodges. A fantastic interim alternative to &Beyond Phinda Homestead is the exclusive &Beyond Phinda Zuka Lodge, which can be booked on a sole-use basis.
