About Phinda Homestead
Situated in the north of the reserve, &Beyond Phinda Homestead is a gracious sole-use safari villa that blends seamlessly into the surrounding trees and bush.
There are four luxurious suites with large sliding windows give a sense of space and light. Beds are positioned to face the waking bush but there's no need to jump out of bed early - with a dedicated game ranger and tracker, as well as a private game drive vehicle, you set your own game drive times!
A focus on stylish comfort, coupled with genuine hospitality from your personal chef and butler, will have you feeling at ease in this private villa. An interactive kitchen awaits your instructions, whether its the simple joy of having your favourite meals prepared for you or the pure pleasure of being surprised at meal time. Enjoy meals shared with special people around a spacious table or savour a delectable picnic on an extended game drive.
While away a quiet afternoon drinking in the views from the open viewing decks or give in to the seduction of plump cushions around the sparkling swimming pool. If you're feeling more active, enjoy a workout in a gym that boasts incredible view of the wilderness outside. As night closes in, admire the glorious colours of an African sunset steal over the skies as the warm light of dozens of lanterns creates an intimate dining space in the private outdoor boma.
Located between the azure ocean waters and the lush World Heritage Site iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Phinda's 23 000 hectares comprises seven distinct ecosystems, including the rare sand forest.
