Game drive booking


We are staying outside the Phinda reserve.

Is it possible to book a game drive to the Phinda reserve when we are not sleeping in the reserve?

Does somebody know where we can book this and what would be the price?

Hope someone can give me a advise.

I don't think so, usually in the private reserves you have to be guest to do a game drive!! 😔😔 but I can be wrong!!

We stayed at Phinda a few years ago and all of the game drives were exclusive to those staying there. But Mark's suggestion of Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is good. We did some great self-drives there but there are also guided drives you can book.

Phinda does not allow non-guests to do game drives in the reserve. As was mentioned you would need to do Umfolozi Hluhluwe - it is a very nice park, but you might consider staying at one of the private game reserves as that is definitely the best opportunity to see the big 5.
