Our Dream

What lies at the core of &Beyond’s success is a vision that puts you, the guest, as well as the land, wildlife and people of Africa, Asia and South America at the heart of our business. By going on an authentic journey that has been tailor-made for each guest, you are helping us to look after the iconic destinations that you visit.

The care that you experience from us during your journey through our warm local hospitality, finest guides, expert travel planners and signature blend of natural luxury ensures that we are able to make a difference in the world.

How we make this happen

The ingredients that go into an &Beyond experience include not just our beautiful lodges and camps but also a handpicked team of destination experts, and the facilities to look after you from the moment you touch down to the moment you leave for home.  Each &Beyond Experience and  Small Group Journey is flavoured with our commitment to Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife and Care of the People.

The &Beyond dream – how it all began

&Beyond’s vision is based on the premise that, in order to care for the world’s wild places, its animals and its people, our company must be sustained through creating exceptional journeys for our guests. In this way, we are able to show meaningful and lasting benefits for the natural environments and the communities that surround our operations. This also allows us to create experiences that transform our guests’ lives.

Since &Beyond’s beginning in 1991, the bateleur eagle has been our company logo. With a name that means ‘acrobat’ in French, these eagles rock from side to side when they soar, mimicking the balancing act of a tight-rope walker. This is only fitting since our company ethos is all about maintaining a healthy balance of caring for the land, wildlife and people.

Our dream was born at &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve more than 25 years ago and we have since grown and developed it to span three continents. Read more about our history here.
