A private safari at &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve allows you to explore the reserve at your own pace while focusing on your special interests. With your own dedicated ranger and tracker team, in your own private 4×4 safari vehicle, &Beyond’s exclusive safaris let you create your very own tailormade wildlife adventure.
With the use of a private safari vehicle, your day begins whenever you wish, whether you choose to set off before daybreak, or treat yourself to a lie-in. The rest of the day goes according to your schedule, heading back to the lodge for a midday break or staying out for a picnic meal in the heart of the African bush. Should you hear the distant sounds of a lion roaring or a hyena calling while you’re warming your toes around the fire in the lodge boma, there’s nothing to stop you from heading out with your ranger to discover the nocturnal predators.
The secrets of the bush will unravel in the company of your dedicated ranger, who will spend time getting to know your special interests and will plan each day accordingly. From birding and tracking to photography or wildlife research, each day will bring myriad surprises to delight and enthral your every waking moment. Choose to spend a night sleeping out beneath starry skies, lulled to sleep by the music of the bush or decide to explore the local community, stopping to visit a traditional healer and getting to know the lives of Zulu villagers. Whether a sudden whim or a long-held desire, a private safari is planned exactly according to your wishes, while remaining flexible enough to adapt at a moment’s notice.
