It's not goodbye, but see you later

The world is opening up and our wonderful guests are starting to travel again. While this is welcome news for the wild places that we support and the animals and people that call them home, it means that we need to do a little readjusting to make sure that we can fully focus on both our real-life guests and our virtual ones.

In order to do this, we have put our &Beyond Connect Virtual Experiences temporarily on hold as we find the right balance to ensure our guides, chefs and wellness practitioners can meet the expectations of all our online and offline guests.

We promise we will do our best to ensure that this is not a final goodbye, but simply a ‘see you later’.

Because it’s really about the planet

Caring for the land, wildlife and people

&Beyond’s expert team of conservationists and specialists are ready to answer all your questions. Join us for an unforgettable virtual session with a dedicated member of our team who is working tirelessly to leave our world a better place.
