Phinda Reserve has six different &Beyond Properties. The Reserve first opened in 1991 and animals have slowly been introduced to what was once farm country. It is now one of the safest places for both black and white rhinos, cheetah, leopards and many other mammal and bird species. The habitats are diverse and despite it being relatively small, we rarely saw another vehicle on our drives. If we were viewing something wonderful (cheetah, leopard, black rhino, etc.) there was never more than one other vehicle present. This black rhino is very easy to approach so they decided to remove his horn to prevent poaching. Poaching can occur even thought they have anti-poaching patrols 24-hours a day. Saw the big five again after only a day and a half.
