&Beyond Phinda Homestead Lodge
Homestead is a “sole use” safari villa.
&Beyond Phinda Homestead Lodge lies within Phinda Private Game Reserve and is a vast area of 28 555 hectares (70 560 acres) that is all protected wilderness. With seven distinct habitats, the reserve is frequently described as being seven areas of absolute wonder. It is a beautiful combination of woodland, grassland, wetland and forest all interspersed with mountain ranges, rivers, marshes and pans.
The reserve is extremely close to the unspoiled beaches and spectacular coral reefs of the Indian Ocean. This allows guests a unique opportunity to combine both beach and bush.
Phinda is home to Africa’s Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino), as well as 436 bird species. The reserve is particularly well known for close-up sightings of the elegant yet elusive Cheetah.
Tucked into the edge of a dappled forest in the north of the reserve, &Beyond Phinda Homestead is a gracious sole-use safari villa. Blending seamlessly into the natural surroundings the lodge’s living areas consist of open spaces, flat-roofed walkways and shaded areas opening out onto sun decks and a sparkling swimming pool.
The four private bedrooms for just 12 guests boast spacious bathrooms blend beautifully into cool and open areas that make you feel completely at home. An interactive kitchen brings the lodge’s private chef into the center of the guest experience. This much-loved lodge comes with a dedicated ranger and tracker team, as well as a private safari vehicle.
Game drives times, as well as meals, are tailored completely to the guests’ preference to create a fully personalized safari.
