Everything we do at &Beyond is centred around our core ethos of Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife and Care of the People. Wherever possible, we strive to provide truly authentic experiences at every turn. These elements are woven throughout our properties, from exceptional interactions with local staff members to the retreat’s beautiful design features, which are inspired by the cultural heritage of the region. At &Beyond, we want to ensure that every guest’s adventure offers a true reflection of Africa’s most prized destinations.
This golden thread continues through to our unique Safari and Island Shops, which display a range of quality, handpicked handicrafts and fashionwear that showcase the very best facets of the region. These products provide the perfect memento of your stay in Africa. Also, be on the look-out for the shop’s range of excellent eco-souvenirs, where a portion of the proceeds raised from the sale of the item benefits a local community or conservation initiative.
In the Safari Shop at &Beyond Phinda Mountain Lodge you can expect to find beautiful, locally-sourced home décor items and handicrafts, as well as a range of fashion items, African art, jewellery, books, safari gear and photographic items.
A visit to KwaZulu-Natal wouldn’t be complete without taking home an authentic Zulu craft as a memento of your stay. The Safari Shop stocks an assortment of beautifully handwoven Zulu baskets and intricately made beaded jewellery. You will also find handmade Zulu spears as well as Zulu artefacts.
If there is anything you would like to purchase from home, or an item you have seen in the lodge that you would like us to source for you, please contact guestshopping@andBeyond.com, and we will do our best to get them to you.
