WILDwatch LIVEChat to our guides

Phinda Private Game Reserve

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’.

Seven reasons to go virtual…

Well, seven breath-taking landscapes… and four exceptional rangers.


Say hello to Jarryd, Damen, Dumi or Clive…the new recruits to our WILDwatch Live / WildEarth initiative!

Join one of them, either straight after the morning or afternoon drive and get chatting about the day’s events, and have the opportunity to learn more about your guide and safaris in general.

This is a private Zoom virtual session, which you can either enjoy exclusively or you can send the link to five of your friends and family to join. Max 12 guests via 6 private links.

This virtual experience is booked on a special request basis, and is in English. It includes a debrief on the wildlife sightings and the opportunity to learn more about your guide and safaris in general.
