The pristine wilderness sanctuaries of KwaZulu-Natal lend themselves to fantastic game drives, making this region one of the most sought-after safari destinations in South Africa. Enjoy twice-daily game drives that set off early in the morning or late in the afternoon (continuing after nightfall), in the company of expert safari guides and local trackers who will do their best to ensure that all your wishes are met. In addition to the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo), each safari destination features an iconic set of wildlife and some of KwaZulu-Natal’s endemic species, which you won’t encounter anywhere else in South Africa. You will also be spoilt for choice at the range of awe-inspiring landscapes in the region. Venture through the seven distinct ecosystems of &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, often referred to as Seven Worlds of Wonder.
A guided nature walk is a magical alternative to a Big Five game drive on Phinda Private Game Reserve. This adventure makes full use of all your senses, allowing you a deeper connection with the African bush. Nothing quite encapsulates the feeling of viewing wildlife on foot. Encounter a variety of plains game from a safe distance and be enchanted by the reserve’s smaller inhabitants. This activity is also fantastic for keen birders and photographic enthusiasts. Your guides have a wealth of experience under their belts and will not only introduce you to the region’s fantastic fauna but its kaleidoscopic array of flora too.
There are several other optional activities available at Phinda to be booked for an optional cost including a Pangolin Conservation Experience, Maputaland Beach Adventure, Black Rhino Tracking on Foot, Turtle Nesting and Scuba Diving. Just ask us for more information!
Note: As an alternative Phinda Forest Lodge can also be booked for this special.
