Kruger Park is world renowned, but Phinda is a reserve some people have never heard of, until now. In truth, Phinda is as good as Kruger, albeit a lot smaller. Combined, we call this safari “the real bush experience” because that’s exactly what it is. Besides the Big 5 and various animals like giraffe and zebra, you may also encounter whales, dolphins and turtles when you chillax in the sun on a private beach on the Indian Ocean. It is one of our best-kept secrets, but feel free to spread the word!

7 Days

Includes local flights, charter flight to Kruger and transfers

3 nights Phinda | 3 nights Kruger Park

Days 1-4: A Story of The Zulu Kingdom

At a local airport, meet your experienced guide who will transfer you privately to Phinda Private Game Reserve for the start of your safari.

With its seven distinct habitats, Phinda Private Game Reserve is often described as ‘Seven Worlds of Wonder’, a magnificent tapestry of woodland, grassland, wetland and forest, interspersed with mountain ranges, rivers, marshes and pans… What brings it all together is the warmth and expertise of the local Zulu people who will be guiding and looking after you.

Depending on the weather during your stay, your guide will take you on a half-day excursion to the beach to enjoy some relaxing in the sun and snorkelling on a reef. This is built around your game drives as well, so you do not miss a minute of action.

Between November and February, night time excursions can also be planned to go and assist with research teams monitoring turtles laying their eggs on the beach.


En-suite accommodation

Breakfast, lunch & dinner plus local drinks

Morning & afternoon game drives, walking safaris and beach excursion

Days 4-7: Remoteness and Tranquility

An early start, you leave the lodge and head to Phinda’s private airstrip (fancy) to catch a charter flight straight to Nelspruit… From there, you catch a transfer to your game lodge…

Enjoy 3 nights out in this awesome wilderness area! We do not guarantee the big 5, although all are well represented in the area. Instead, we guarantee you an opportunity to see various animals in a 5-million-acre wilderness. It is a chance to experience nature at its very best without crowds and be able to live in the moment with Mother Nature keeping you wrapped around her finger.

Day 7: End of your Beach to Bush Vacation

After a game drive and a relaxed breakfast, your safari sadly comes to an end. A transfer will be waiting to take you back to a local airport.

This safari can also be extended or act as an add-on to any of our other awesome safaris below.
