Arrived at Vuyani on the 5th September and can honestly say we enjoyed every minute of it. We were treated so well from the minute we arrived to leaving seven days later. The meals were to die for and plentiful. The staff all went out of their way to be helpful and the safaris were fantastic, the trackers really going... More

Vuyani Lodge is situated not that far south of the great Kruger National Wild Animal Park. The lodge is on a private game reserve and caters for about eighteen guests at a time. If you want to go looking for wild animals in dense bush, look no further. The guides and trackers are some of the very best in Africa... More

After reading all the excellent reviews of Vuyani I can honestly say that I was disappointed to notice that the view of the mountains was a bit hazy and that there were a few clouds in the sky on Thursday, and there the disappointment ends ! We arrived after a car transfer from Jo'burg just in time for a Braai... More

My wife and I just returned from a five-night, four day stay at Vuyani Lodge. Even with all of the great reviews here, it surpassed our expectations. The accommodations are nice, the staff is great (we loved Kim, Chad, and Mike!), and the food is wonderful for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The game drives (x2 each day) are awesome and... More

It has always been my dream to go on a safari and I finally made it last May and I had the most wonderful experience. It all started with fantastic accommodation, wonderful staff and being shown every animal out there in the wilds that I could hope to see! Completely spoilt as I don't think I will ever have a...

Hi Wendy, Many thanks for leaving us such a fantastic review. I am uber-pleased that we were able to make your life-long dream of a perfect safari here in Africa possible.

This lodge is the best place I've ever stayed in. The staff are all so attentive and already know and remember your names before you have even set foot in the place. They also remember personal things about you - for example like the fact that I am a vegetarian. Through out the whole day they keep you well watered... More

We have just returned from the best family holiday ever. We couldn't believe that a holiday destination could be so good, but it really is. From the service where nothing was too much, to the good food, to the knowledge of all the staff especially the guides & Uyai the tracker. Every time we returned to the lodge we were... More

A safari is a once in a lifetime experience and the Vuyani Lodge goes above and beyond to make your trip the best possible experience. The staff is wonderful. Go through the activities with the team to identify any excursions that you or your family would like to do. We definitely recommend adding the Kruger National Park excursion. It is... More

Dear Leah, Many thanks for your fantastic review, it made my day! Temba is indeed a first class ranger (and so are all our guides), and I am pleased that you enjoyed his guiding on our reserve and in the Kruger Park.

It was my fourth stay at Vuyani Lodge, and I took some friends with me, which have never been on Safari before. The lodge has only 7 rooms, which makes it easy to get in contact with other guests and share your experiences during the day. Rooms are very clean and lovely decorated. It is a very familiar atmosphere and... More
