Phinda private game reserve:
Thanks to its coastal rainfall pattern, Phinda Private Game Reserve enjoys a lush green environment that contains seven distinct ecosystems. &Beyond Phinda is often referred to as ‘Seven Worlds of Wonder.’ This fascinating variety of landscape and vegetation shelters an abundance of wildlife. This includes not only the Big Five but many rarer and less easily spotted species, such as the elusive cheetah or the scarce black rhino.
With only a handful of lodges sharing an area of 23 000 hectares. Expert rangers and trackers in search of prime wildlife sightings, guests are assured an exclusive game viewing experience. Adding to Phinda’s wildlife charms, the marine diversity of nearby Sodwana Bay on the coast is easily accessible. This offers scuba diving, fishing and even turtle watching only some of the adventures available from &Beyond Phinda.
