Next destination on the photographic safariplaces “must see list” is Phinda in South Africa.


Phinda consists of at least 5 different habitats and is located just behind the sand dunes of the Indian Ocean in the southeast of South Africa. Specialties are:


The very rare sand forest, a forest where fairies seem to live with elephants and big cats.

Great diversity of animals

The Big 5, with especially great cheetah sightings

The possibility to watch turtles laying their eggs

Great birding with the possibility of boat cruises on the river

Different landscapes

And great lodges (see image above)

Great team buildingactivities

Black rhino tracking


Phinda was in the past a pineapple plantation and was brought back to be bush more than 20 years ago. The name Phinda means “the return” and the game reserve made indeed a great return to the wild African bush.


It is not the common safari destination, but very worth visiting.


Happy snapping travel!
