&Beyond operates over 33 camps and lodges in spectacular locations from the Serengeti and the Okavango Delta to the islands of the Indian Ocean. Dedicated to providing a 5-star safari experience, &Beyond also upholds the values of sustainable eco-tourism for the benefit of its guests as well as local communities.
The dream started over 20 years ago at Londolozi Private Game Reserve in South Africa but it was in the early 1990s with the establishment of Phinda, a Zulu word meaning "the return", that sustainable conservation dovetailed with responsible tourism and community responsibility to create the platform for &Beyond to expand and deliver on its stated ethic: "Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife, Care of the People".
Renowned for their top quality accommodation in exceptionally beautiful wilderness areas, &Beyond's outstanding African-style cuisine, friendly service and highly trained and knowledgeable guides mean that there are very few lodges of a higher standard, and they have the added benefit of an all-inclusive concept where all meals, selected drinks and selected activities are included in the daily rate.
&Beyond also strongly believes in giving back to the local communities, which it does by providing employment and land ownership opportunities as well as by building local schools and clinics. This philanthropic spirit has been recognized by numerous international hospitality and conservation awards including the prestigious Conde Nast Traveller’s World Savers Award for Wildlife Conservation, awarded to the flagship Phinda Private Game Reserve in 2008.
This company's outstanding reputation and collection of international accolades are well-deserved and, by incorporating a stay in an &Beyond property, you can rest assured that some of the proceeds from your trip will be reinvested into sustaining the natural environment in which you are staying.
