In the heart of a rare sand forest lies andBeyond Phinda Forest Lodge, a collection of contemporary glass houses, whose transparent walls allow guests to appreciate the calm, deep green of vegetation outside. Carefully spaced for privacy, each of the 16 serene suites feature oversized bathtubs and generous verandas, providing different yet equally relaxing settings to appreciate the parade of wildlife outside.

Sandy paths lead to the main lodge’s stunning infinity pool and the traditional ‘boma’ where a welcoming campfire invites you to savour a delicious meal beneath the stars. There are also plenty of spaces outside where you can read quietly in dappled shade whilst enjoying birdsong.

Things to do at andBeyond Phinda Forest Lodge include morning and late afternoon game drives, bush walks and river cruises (water levels permitting) to explore the reserve’s seven distinct habitats. You could also visit a Zulu village, see turtles nesting (seasonal), go scuba diving or visit local conservation projects. Alternatively, you could just sit back and do nothing at all. If you’re travelling with kids, andBeyond’s WILDChild Program will keep them entertained for hours so you can spend more time unwinding.
