Enlightening, exhilarating, extraordinary South African splendour

African Homesteads

15 exclusive, private and luxurious homes in South Africa’s exceptional &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve are available for ownership. Located in the province of KwaZulu-Natal on the country’s north eastern coast, African Homesteads is a venture between leading luxury safari company &Beyond and Tara Getty.

At Phinda, you can experience the continent’s finest game viewing of Africa’s Big Five, an abundance of animals and over 400 bird species. And only 19 miles away, you have the Indian Ocean with a marine diversity said to rival that of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and beaches to explore, whales to watch in season, reefs to dive, fish to catch and miles and miles of golden sand to walk on. It takes approximately 45 minutes to drive to the coast or a 10 minutes helicopter/light aircraft flight directly from Phinda’s private airstrip.

Designed to be the ultimate private bushveld retreat to share with friends and family, each luxurious homestead extends over 800m² (8,600 sq. ft.), and comprises up to four large bedrooms with beautifully appointed bathrooms built around spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. Expansive wooden verandas and a large infinity pool at each homestead overlook the untamed wilderness and the wildlife that passes through it.

When you are in residence, a ranger/tracker team, homestead host, chef and homestead team are on hand to cater to your every need. Each African Homestead is also equipped with its own open 4×4 safari vehicle for unrestricted game drives throughout the reserve.

The first African Homestead showhouse has debuted with sensational, safari-inspired designs by prominent safari lodge architect, Nick Plewman and award-winning interior designer, Chris Browne. The spacious homestead’s use of glass, open layout and a natural form is a perfect complement to the bush outside. The design team works with owners to create their personal African homestead.

Daily flights in light aircraft depart directly to Phinda’s private airstrip from Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport. Flight or road transfers can also be arranged from Durban International Airport and Richard’s Bay Airport.

Prices for these once in a lifetime homes start at US$6 million, and homes are offered on a 70-year leasehold. The purchase price includes traversing rights over the full extent of &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve.

This is the ultimate African safari home – worry-free and fully serviced ownership of a world-renowned game reserve in Africa.
