andBeyond Phinda Forest Lodge

Phinda Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Nestled within a rare and endangered sand forest, the award-winning andBeyond Phinda Forest
Lodge was one of the world’s first eco-designed luxury safari lodges. This exceptional retreat
has been newly renovated, promising an unrivalled stay, within one of our favorite safari
destinations; the expansive 73,800-acre andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve.

The Zulu-Zen design (a nod to the region’s vibrant local culture and as well as the need for
complete respite) ensures minimal environmental impact, blending seamlessly into the forest
and promoting sustainable luxury. The lodge’s 16 air-conditioned suites are elevated on stilts,
and boast floor-to-ceiling glass walls, immersing you in your surrounds while ensuring privacy.
Enjoy a spacious ensuite bathroom with a freestanding bath, an indoor shower, and double
vanity; a super-king bed, and a private veranda.

The main guest areas include an elegant lounge, wine cellar, interactive kitchen, a well-
equipped gym, wellness spa, and a sparkling rim-flow swimming pool. Adventure options

unforgettable stay.
