Having visited Galago camp with family we took the opportunity to visit Vuyatela with friends. We are a group that have been making annual trips to Sabi Sand self catering lodges for the past 9 years.Camp staff met us on arrival and assisted us in getting settled. As the camp is self catering there was a lot of stuff to... More

This camp sleeps 10 but we came with a group of 7. This actually worked out best because to have 10 people on a vehicle at once would have been a bit crowded. What an experience. It is self catering with an offer of a chef, which many of the reviews recommended and raved about. We chose to just do... More

A group of friends and myself spent 3 nights at Galago self catering camp and enjoyed every minute. The camp has just the right amount of luxury without being ostentatious. Kitchen is well-equipped and staff are really efficient. We also had great game viewing in a good safari vehicle. Only small change I would recommend is to equip the ranger... More

We were at Vuyatela a group of 10 of us for a few nights in Aug 2013, and following this trip we immediately book a longer stay for the same period in 2014. The staff are ever so welcoming, and I am not going to lie the inclusion of a chef into this self catering establishment was the icing on... More

Over the years my wife and I have been to a number of self catering camps in the Sabi Sand and Timbavati areas, including several previous visits to (the old) Djuma Galago. This time we went as a group of 10 with family from Switzerland and SA and spent 3 nights at Djuma Vuyatela. The weather was kind and the... More

If you enjoy the finer things in life though appreciate being out in the bush - then you can't go wrong with Vuyatela. The wild life in this particular part of the bush is particularly busy - you're absolutely guaranteed of seeing almost everything you've ever wanted to witness - and it's all 100% wild.

Been twice to Vuyatela, great little seperate chalets that sleep 2, and a main living and eating area. The second time we went it had been changed to self catering with staff and you have to book the place out - enough space for 10 people and more kids...bearing in mind that a vehicle could only fit 10 people max....

We have just spent 5 nights at Vuyatelo - an awesome time was had by all. This is our first trip to Vuyatelo, we have had 7 previous trips to Galago. The accommodation is top notch and facilities excellent. Although we chose to do our own catering, Luzile was always on hand and assisted with inspirational dishes. Taxon and Amos... More

We were a party of 7, so used 4 of the chalets. Couldn't agree more with the review of Dan201103-- we also were there in July 2013 and chose to have the chef. The staff was just terrific, facilities were fabulous and the game drives a rousing success. Hard to pick a highlight, but probably the mother cheetah with her... More
