Check into a luxe suite, with sweeping views of the African savanna.
An African safari with dramatic landscapes, candy-floss sunsets and animal encounters is the stuff of bucket lists. But here's one more reason to embark on a wild adventure in the Mother Continent in 2024: andBeyond's Phinda Forest Lodge has just reopened after a significant refurb.
Located in South Africa's coastal province of KwaZulu Natal, the luxury lodge set a benchmark for sustainable tourism when it was first built in the 1990s, and the new iteration takes its eco credentials to a whole new level, with extensive use of natural materials such as woven mats, grass-cloth wallpapers and hardwood floors.
Check into one of the luxurious suites, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, fully stocked bars and high-speed Wi-Fi, then make a beeline for the onsite pool, overlooking the nearby wetlands. And when it's time to explore the African savanna, join the lodge's safari game drives that take place during both day and night, promising all sorts of wild encounters. andbeyond.com
