Having read so many amazing reviews about Vuyani, I was so excited to see whether it lived up to it's reputation .. It does! It is simply the best place we have ever been to, from the wonderful, friendly staff, the fabulous food, the beautiful accommodation, the game drivers - Themba, Oiyai (excuse spelling) and Chad you were brilliant.

If you're looking to be completely spoiled and experience the adventure of a lifetime, Vuyani is the place for you. We stayed 6 nights, and it was not enough. From the very moment we arrived at the lodge to the moment we left, Vuyani was complete perfection. The management team of Justine and Craig are wonderful hosts and will make... More

The first thing I do every morning, before starting my work, is checking Tripadvisor for any new reviews, and when I read reviews such as these, then my day starts with a smile, and it gives us all a spring in our step. We aim to offer one of the best possible safari experiences in South Africa, and when it... More

Where do I start!!! Vuyani is just simply amazing. We spent 5 nights at Vuyani celebrating our 1st year anniversary and also our honeymoon and we are so pleased that we were able to stay somewhere so amazing. Everything is executed perfectly from the room decor, the food, staff, game drives and general feel of the lodge. The staff can't... More

What an amazing vacation! Vuyani was wonderful and everyone was extremely hospitable and attentive. The rooms are gorgeous and the grounds are well kept, however, if you aren't too fond of insects, and especially spiders, I would recommend staying in the rooms attached to the lodge... I wish we did (I hate bugs!!!) :) The game drives were a little... More

Many thanks for your (very) positive feedback, and review. I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed yourselves, and that you liked the lodge and the game drives. I would like to rectify a few points raised at this point: the honeymoon suite chalets are well insulated, and bugs (especially spiders) are kept to the bare minimum, as much as... More

We stayed at Vuyani for a week as part of our honeymoon and were suitably spoiled throughout. From the beautiful surroundings, knowledgable and friendly staff, excellent food choice, amazing attention to detail and finally to the variety of wildlife on site, it was an amazing experience that will stay with us for a long time.

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 !
