The Phinda Private Game Reserve, near the South African town of Hluhluwe, is home to luxury lodges spread over 56,000 acres and seven habitats, from the savanna to the unique sand forest. Rangers take visitors on drives to observe the Big Five (Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino) and other animals roaming freely in protected open spaces.
