It's not goodbye, but see you later
The world is opening up and our wonderful guests are starting to travel again. While this is welcome news for the wild places that we support and the animals and people that call them home, it means that we need to do a little readjusting to make sure that we can fully focus on both our real-life guests and our virtual ones.
In order to do this, we will have to put our &Beyond Connect Virtual Experiences and daily WILDwatch Live safaris temporarily on hold as we find the right balance to ensure our guides, chefs and wellness practitioners can meet the expectation of all our online and offline guests.
We absolutely love bringing &Beyond into your homes, offices and schools, and promise we will do our best to ensure that this is not a final goodbye, but simply a ‘see you later’.
In a quest to relieve the tedium of isolation, we’ve collaborated with wildlife broadcasting experts, WildEarth, to stream (in real time) twice-daily, three-hour long game drives from &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve, &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, Djuma Private Game Reserve, Tswalu and Pridelands Conservancy.
You can view the safaris between:
- 06:30am – 09:30am CAT (sunrise dependent)
- 14:30pm – 18:30pm CAT (sunset dependent)

NOTE: We’ve been loving the incredible response to our WILDwatch Live safaris. Because of the increasing popularity of the drives, we are receiving a high volume of questions, and the guides are doing their utmost best to answer as many questions as they can. We ask that you please be patient with us and apologise if we somehow miss your query. Thank you again for your phenomenal support!

My WILDwatch Online
Private Virtual Safari
Have the luxury of sitting in on a virtual session with an expert &Beyond guide who will interpret the incredible sightings of a recorded WILDwatch Live drive with you. This is a slightly more interpretive experience, allowing the opportunity to really deep dive into recorded sightings as well as offering the opportunity to discuss topics of special interest.
