We travel a lot. It was our first experience with &Beyond and we don't regret any penny of it : the game was absolutely fantastic, we saw ALL the "big five" and much more. The kids (aged 10 and 6) were thrilled. Our rangers Richard & Jomo were a great team. The food is really good, healthy, light, fantastic. The...

We had 5 nights at Phinda and from the moment we arrived we were so well looked after. We had lunch as soon as we arrived and met the lovely Anayda who looked after us for the duration of our stay. She always had a smile on her face and went out of her way to help us. We then...

We came here from Ulusaba so had high expectations. Phinda game was as good, Sibu our ranger was top notch, food was excellent but hosting staff were poor. Not friendly, no engagement, appalling attitude at checkout.... We were charged R500 for one night of baby sitting which is more than I would pay in UK! I would not mind so...

First experience with my family (one children aged 8 months). Everything went smoothly for all the stay at Phinda, it was really great. The staff was very concern with our daughter and we left with wonderful family safari experiences and memories.

Stayed here with family in April. 2nd Safari in South Africa. They are not cheap but you get what you pay for. This place is magical and rooms and service were exceptional. It is fully inclusive but guarantee you will be in bed by 9sh as the days are so long and good you won't want to miss a thing....

My family and I (2 children aged 8 and 10) stayed at the Phinda Mountain Lodge for 2 days at the end of March and had a most amazing end to our South African holiday. We took 2 game drives per day (4 in total) and saw countless animals including Rhinos, Lions, Elephants, Cheetah and Leopards. The park felt empty...

My family was so sad to leave Phinda. What an amazing experience! Staff- super friendly and helpful. Great with kids. Fun and knowledgable tracker and guide on our safari treks. There was even a designated child activity planner. My daughter loved making a bow and arrow in the arts and crafts room. They organized our transport to the airport as...

Well done to AndBeyond, they have again surpassed our expectations of what a great experience a Safari should be. Mountains lodge is in a spectacular location with stunning views from both the main lodge and from the apartments, and the game drives were truly wonderful. Our Ranger JG and spotter Betheuil <sp?> were absolutely top notch and some of the...

I’m giving 5 stars to both this lodge and to Vlei lodge, where my wife and I stayed for a few additional days – but for slightly different reasons. You can read my reviews of Vlei on the other review section. Mountain Lodge offers wonderful game viewing – and is especially convenient for groups and families. Due to the fact...

From the moment we decided to spend hour Honeymoon in South Africa and do a safari, the company &Beyond won my attention.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With wraparound views of the ancient Ubombo mountain range, Mountain Lodge balances itself majestically above its panoramic surroundings. The 24 suites scattered along the mountainside offer complete privacy and luxury. There's no end to the choice of taking in the view - spacious verandas with private plunge pools and layered guest areas each provide their own magnificent outlook. Delicious Pan African meals are enjoyed in the dramatic stone and reed boma, lit by the warm glow of dozens of candles and lanterns. ... more   less
