&Beyond Phinda Homestead


This is possibly the most luxurious villa in the bush; a private retreat for a family or group of friends, it has just four spacious suites, all with sliding glass doors and indoor & outdoor showers. The central living and dining areas are spacious, and there is also a stunning infinity-edge swimming pool.

Any guests at The Homestead are provided with a private butler, chef, ranger and tracker – all there to make your stay as unforgettable and exclusive as is possible.


Our Thoughts

Arguably the best private safari house in Southern Africa – it has hosted royalty and Presidents, as well as humble Africa Travel clients. The lounge and kitchen area are all open-plan and the infinity-edge swimming pool overlooking the bush is worthy of a few photos.

  • Private butler and chef
  • Personal ranger and tracker
  • Infinity pool
  • Gym
  • Private outdoor Boma
  • Private game drives (at your chosen time)

Because only eight people can stay here at any one time, the dining experience is very personal. It’s classed as an interactive kitchen as you have a personal chef who you can get involved with and help out, or you can just sit back, relax and watch your meal be prepared and brought to you for an intimate but informal dining experience.

An exclusive, sole-use villa perfect for families and small parties. The four spacious suites accommodate eight guests and feature unique sliding panel windows framing the beautiful views, and infuse a contemporary Zulu vernacular on the ambience. En-suite bathrooms with separate WC’s, his and her basins, baths, indoor and amazing outdoor showers.

  • Twice daily game drives
  • Nature walks
  • Bird watching
  • Riverboat cruises
  • Canoeing
  • Coastal flights
  • Snorkelling
  • Scuba diving
  • Seep sea fishing
  • Turtle viewing (seasonal Nov-Jan)
  • Cultural visits
  • Private in-room massages available

As a private house &Beyond Phinda Homestead is ideal for family travel, with fewer restrictions than the regular lodges.

&Beyond Phinda Homestead also features the WILDChild programme, which involves fun interactive activities to enjoy and learn from. Each child will receive a WILDChild bag filled with goodies and a personalised note, with those under the age of 3 receiving a soft toy too.
