If you are going to safari, this is the only place. My wife and I went to SA for our Ruby Wedding anniversary and this was utterly the best experience we have ever had on holiday. Five star Safaris Welcome and Service Food Ambience Setting

This was not my first stay at Vuyani Safari Lodge and despite there being other lodges in the area, I am convinced that Vuyani is the best.

We had the best time. Thanks... More

After an overnight flight from Heathrow we were met at Johannesburg airport by the very friendly and welcoming Hannes and we began our five hour drive to Vuyani. The 4x4 was very comfortable and air conditioned. I would strongly recommend making the journey to Vuyani by road as you will get to see so much of South Africa’s beautiful scenery... More

We have just returned from a week's holiday at Vuyani Safari Lodge, and this will, I am sure, be the first of 2 reviews by our family. 5 stars do not do justice to this incredible place! By the end of the week we had run out of positive words to describe our experiences, so we decided we will have... More
