Hats off to &Beyond for creating the Phinda reserve! The concept is working...slowly but surely animal populations are increasing and poaching is slowing, the standard of living is improving in nearby villages, and lucky folks from all over the world are getting a rare glimpse of Eden. Every creature comfort is provided in 6 private lodges and personal preferences and needs are met cheerfully by staff from local communities. There is incredible diversity and variety in ecosystems and wildlife, knowledgeably and passionately presented by expert guides/rangers/trackers (Martin & Muzi were incredible!). Locally sourced cuisine was imaginative, delicious and abundant. Words are inadequate...you just MUST GO!
