Myself and my husband actually got married at Vuyani on December the 11th 2014. We stayed for a week and got married towards the end of our stay. We booked the wedding at Vuyani some 2/3 years previously after stumbling across the website by accident. After reading the reviews we decided to ask them if they offered weddings. Bernard was...

We just finished a fantastic 6 days stay at Vuyani, which we decided upon based on recommendation by Jetsetter and highly rated by both TripAdvisor & Facebook, and were not at all disappointed for our first African Safari experience. Prior and upon booking Bernard was super helpful, upon arrival to the local airport, Paul was friendly and welcoming, and throughout... More

I've been meaning to write this for a while. My wife visited Vuyani over Christmas and had an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives. From the time our driver Paul collected us at our hotel in Sandton, we were treated not only like guests, but old friends. When we arrived, we were shown to our very... More

My daughter and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Vuyani Safari Lodge for five days. It was beyond our wildest dreams. Everyone at the lodge did whatever they could to make the stay memorable. We had two game drives a day which were always exciting and informative. Each day was a surprise with the guides doing an outstanding... More

We were tossing up staying at Vuyani or some of the more well known high end safari lodges and after reading some of the reviews went with Vuyani. We were not blown away with our experience. The trackers on the drives were absolutely fantastic, so knowledgable and lovely. We didn't like that some of the drives someone else would specifically... More

I've just been vegging after a particularly frantic week and pulled up my email to an African Safari Groupon. I clicked just for kicks and was immediately transported to last September and a trip with two other friends to Vuyani. You know how it is sometimes when you see a property online, make a reservation only to be terribly disappointed... More
