On a private game reserve in South Africa, &Beyond's Phinda Rock Lodge is situated on a verdant hillside above the veld. Six stone and adobe villas feature private pools, butler service and riveting views of Leopard Rock. Guests can scour the bush for the Big 5, or go on a sea safari in the nearby Sodwana Bay. Led by marine rangers, water-lovers can spot penguins, swim with the dolphins, fish for marlin or scope out turtles making their nests at night.
