Phinda – exclusive and engaging

A private and immersive, 7-night journey that does not cost the earth

Embark on an extraordinary 7-night journey in South Africa’s award-winning Phinda Private Game Reserve. This immersive experience makes the most of your long stay with its fantastic range of Big Five safaris, conservation and community experiences. It offers the perfect opportunity for you (and your family or friends) to explore and reconnect with one of the planet’s remote and pristine wild places.

Additionally, we have kept the idea of private travel (bubbles) at the forefront of these offerings. We call it “Exclusivity for Everyone”. Our range of private travel (bubble) opportunities will match the size of your travelling party; with accommodation, flights, transfers and activity options.

7 nights at &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve

LEAVING OUR WORLD A BETTER PLACE

It was at Phinda that &Beyond’s Care of the Land, Wildlife and People impact vision
was tested and shaped. Here, 28 622 hectares of farming land was reclaimed for wildlife, including
790 hectares of critically endangered ancient sand forest. Cheetah, rhino and pangolin are actively
protected, with more than 30 years of pioneering wildlife victories behind us.
Along with Africa Foundation, the reserve works closely with neighbouring communities,
employing locally and investing in community education and welfare.
Sustainability practices are a daily priority and include the elimination of plastic bottles
and a focus on energy-saving initiatives.

Cyber Monday 2020

Get 20% off our private and immersive, 7 wonders in 7 days journeys

This Cyber Monday, we want you to linger a little longer with our selection of slow travel itineraries. Why slow travel?  A longer stay, in one destination, means that you can enjoy more time reconnecting with yourself, your loved ones, and the natural world.

Exclusivity for everyone

Choose the level of privacy that works for you

Choose from three categories below:  a FULLY-PRIVATE offering (ensuring it’s just you and your group from start to finish); SEMI-PRIVATE that ensures your accommodation and activities are just for you; and (if you don’t mind sharing accommodation options but want your experiences all to yourself) our PRIVATE SAFARIS-ONLY option might just be for you.

A taste of the 7 wonders

Here are just some of the incredible inclusive and additional cost wonders you can experience privately on &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve

Adventure on a private Big Five safari

After being welcomed off your private charter flight on the Phinda Private Game Reserve airstrip, your dedicated private guide, who will accompany you on every step of your 7-day safari, will escort you to the lodge of your choice. An introduction to your safari adventure over an appetising lunch will be followed by a siesta in preparation for a never-to-be-forgotten evening spent tracking the Big Five on your private safari game drive.

Phinda is home to a magnificent variety of wildlife, including the Big Five, but is best known for its large population of cheetah and black rhino. The sand forest is home to the shy suni and the rare red duiker, two tiny antelope that are seldom encountered elsewhere.

28,555 ha (70,560 acres) of private traversing across seven distinct habitats allows for a great diversity of landscapes and exclusive game viewing. Limited number of vehicles at sightings and sensitive off-roading practices affords close-up sightings of Big Five and other rare and iconic wildlife.

Included in your private adventure rate.
