A private safari villa that is booked for the sole use of one group, &Beyond Phinda Homestead is ideal for family travel.
Four spacious suites are grouped around a common lounge and dining area, offering privacy for individual couples while providing shared spaces for the family to spend time together. A nanny’s room is available for childminders travelling with the family.
The exclusive use of a safari vehicle, as well as a dedicated ranger and tracker team, mean that game drives can be tailored for the shorter attention span of younger children, leaving and coming back to the lodge at any time. The private chef is available to prepare meals at any time, catering for early bedtimes and preparing special food for fussy eaters on request. Childminders are available to look after younger children.
&Beyond's WILDChild Programme
Designed especially for children visiting &Beyond’s lodges, WILDchild is filled with fun, interactive activities that offer opportunities to learn and discover new experiences and cultures. On arrival at &Beyond Phinda Homestead, each child will receive a WILDchild branded bag containing a logbook, crayons, pencils and a pawprint tattoo. There is a personalised welcome note for every child, with those under three getting an African-themed soft toy as well.
