&Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve

Hluhluwe, KwaZulu-Natal


&Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve encompasses an impressive 23 000 hectares (56 800 acres) of prime wilderness land in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Showcasing one of the continent’s finest game viewing experiences, including that of cheetah, &Beyond Phinda features Africa's Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), endangered black rhino, and 415 bird species.

Phinda is described as "Seven Worlds of Wonder", with its seven distinct habitats - a magnificent tapestry of woodland, grassland, wetland and forest, interspersed with mountain ranges, river courses, marshes and pans. Phinda is a wilderness sanctuary where intimate encounters and rare discoveries can be experienced firsthand. With unspoiled beaches and spectacular reefs nearby, and an abundance of wildlife, Phinda offers the perfect bush and beach adventure.

Catch a glimpse of the shy suni antelope or the gracious nyala, or track the movements of the incredible and endangered rhino, following in their 'footsteps'. Observe the fascinating African elephant, as herds of these majestic gentle giants meander through the fever tree forests, or listen to the rhythmic purr of an elegant cheetah mother as she bonds with her cubs or teaches them how to sharpen their hunting skills.
