I would like to Thank andBeyond for the most amazing trip we had with 13 of my family for my Dads 80th Birthday! We had a fantastic time at Kirkmans Kamp and our Rangers Jarryd, Josh, Jaffad and Jerry we’re brilliant. We then flew to Phinda Mountain Lodge for a totally different experience! Thanks to Clive, Nikki, Pat and Musa the Kids loved you as well. We had a great time at Matetsi. Our last stop before returning to Australia was the most magical Island Benguerra were we just loved the relaxed atmosphere and People! Many Thanks to Johan and his wonderful team.

We spent several days at Xudum and Nxabega in Botswana and just returned last month. We have traveled all over the world in the last 10 years but never to Africa and, frankly, never with such an amazing company that thinks of everything. We felt like family and truly regretted having to leave this new family behind.

We arrived at andBeyond on Jan. 1st and left on Jan. 8th. We spent the whole trip at the luxury Exeter River Lodge resort. Everything and I mean Everything was perfect. The drives with the guide, the tracker, the 3 meals we ate each day, the little surprises along the way like the private dinner in our room. It was magical and brought my husband and I closer together. I can not recommend andBeyond enough!

Stride Review

Founded in 1991, &Beyond is best known for its individually tailored luxury African safaris that span top wildlife areas throughout much of the continent. The company has since expanded to arranging private tours of several countries in South Asia (most notably India) and, to a lesser extent, southern South America. 

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

The company – originally called CC Africa or Conservation Corporation Africa – was founded in the belief that responsible tourism and wildlife conservation can go hand in hand. &Beyond now owns and operates 35 lodges and camps in seven countries that aid conservation efforts in Africa and India. The company is the recipient of a number of awards honoring its commitment to sustainable travel. 

Who Travels With Them?

Anyone who can afford a custom-made luxury private tour or safari could benefit from &Beyond’s attentive services. Whether you have a clear idea of the trip you’d like to take or would prefer &Beyond to take the lead, their staff will help guide you through the entire process. 

Where Do They Operate?

&Beyond designs a host of African safaris in 15 countries as well as tours to South Asia and South America. African safari destinations include South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. You can take a walking safari in Kenya, track gorillas in Uganda, or board a water safari in Zimbabwe, among other choices. In South Asia, you could take a jungle safari in India or Nepal, a beach holiday in the Maldives, or discover beautiful Sri Lanka. In South America, Chile and Argentina are featured. 

How Does It Work?

&Beyond specializes in custom-made private tours. You can also choose one of their suggested “model” itineraries or modify it according to your desires. They promise 24/7 support every day of the year.  

Why Travel With Them? 

As one of the pioneers of eco-tourism in Africa, &Beyond has demonstrated its commitment to planning luxury safaris that enhance rather than detract from conservation efforts. Especially in their Africa tours, &Beyond offers a wide variety of adventurous experiences, using (in many cases) lodgings that the company itself owns, guaranteeing their quality.
