We have been exploring Southern and East Africa’s Extraordinary Experiences and inspirational destinations for almost 10 years. As part of our Extraordinary Experiences in Africa bucket list, we would like to introduce you to our last one, of our most favourite, awe inspiring and off the beaten track experiences.
From seeing Africa’s great apes and extinct volcanoes in Rwanda, to staying in an exclusive private villa in the Kruger, horse ride on the beautiful beaches of Mozambique, stay in a shipwreck style luxury lodge situated in the very remote Skeleton Coast National Park…. there is nowhere like it on earth!
Meet with meerkats in their own habitat, go turtle tracking off the beautiful Elephant Coast of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. Stay in a Zulu Zen glass house on safari in a Big 5 private game reserve in South Africa.

andBeyond Phinda Forest Lodge in a private Big 5 Reserve
They say that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones and that is certainly true at Phinda Forest Lodge. The 16 suites are built on stilts and appear to float between the forest floor and the towering torchwood trees. Inventively designed in a style affectionately known as Zulu Zen, each handcrafted, glass-encased suite boasts a minimalist flair that incorporates high-gloss wooden floors, richly tactile fabrics and brightly accented Zulu artefacts. Waking up to rustling forest sounds and bird song, surrounded by delicate leaf-filtered light, a pervading sense of peace and calm will set the tone for your entire day. Lie in your bed at night and listen to the calls of the wild. Phinda forest lodge is Perfect for Couples, families wildlife enthusiasts and keen birders. The Game viewing at Phinda is exceptional all year round
