The essence of the experience
Enjoy a leisurely afternoon game drive around &Beyond Phinda Private Game reserve, awash with untamed wildlife and birdlife. Arrive at a romantic and magical setting in the middle of the bush, where comfortable beds with real duvets and warm blankets have been set up, draped with billowing mosquito nets. Inviting chairs surround a blazing campfire and twinkling lanterns hang from towering trees. On days when the weather turns dark, revel in the knowledge that a warm, comfortable room at a nearby lodge is ready and waiting in case you change your mind. Those who choose to persevere will be welcomed with sundowner drinks to toast the disappearing sun whilst your dedicated ranger prepares a delicious meal, celebrating African flavours on the open fire. Recreate the day’s adventures and encounters around the fireside, from the swift cheetah that raced past your open safari vehicle to the white rhinos and the more rare and endangered black rhino, as well as the elegant nyala antelope. Drink in the tranquillity of the bush and enjoy the distinct night sounds and songs of Africa. Fall asleep under an impossibly starry sky to the soothing sound of the hyena calling out in the distance, secure in the knowledge that an armed guard will patrol the site throughout the night.
