Phinda Leopard Conservation
KwaZulu Natal and the north coast, South Africa
Stay at Phinda and spot a leopard in the wild! Join experienced trackers and conservationists to find, track and photograph these elusive animals.
Phinda Private Game Reserve is one of the best locations in South Africa to spot leopard, with a population increase of over 40% in the last year alone. Phinda supports the MunYaWana Leopard Research project, in collaboration with Panthera and &Beyond, which encourages local cattle farmers and ranchers to look at alternative methods of protecting their livestock from leopards. The success rate of this project speaks for itself!
For those guests interested in leopard conservation, &Beyond offers a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at all aspects of the project. Take a three-day safari in the company of a Specialist Safari Ranger, tracking the leopards and interpreting the fieldwork findings. This is a great way to experience some truly incredible leopard sightings, and also to contribute towards the protection and conservation of these amazing animals.
