From the time we walked in and were made to feel at home till the time we left knowing that we had made firends not only with the staff but with the other guests, Lloyd and Heidi, espcially and Melinda's and Brian along with Kyle and his lovely girlfriend. The food was a SIX STAR event by Jerrod and Rosie at each meal. They deal with any of your dietary needs if you have any and you wil eat the best food of your lives. Takle my word, we eat out alot. The guides Pierre, Jesse and Stacie know their stuff and each safari we took was more facinating, educational and fun than the next. The private reserve that Vuyani is located is filled with all sort of animals and birds and you never know what you will see each time you go out. We saw a male lion teaching his kids how to hunt, here is the Youtube link: http://youtu.be/vGwEVY0Y26Y. Thank you Melinda for such fine video. This was a very rare occasion to see this. Thanks to you Jesse and Stacie for finding the lions espcially on our last morning safari before we left for Cape Town. One must go to Kruger and see even more. The Vuyani guides will take you. In fact Craig, Justine and Rina, the management team will make sure no matter what you want to do it will it happen, I wanted to see Jessica the Hippo, Craigf took 4 of us. Rex will keep you safe around the lodge and Chris will keep the wine glass filled as Lloyd has said. Side trips, they have a list and take will take you. Sitting around the dinning room table just talking and having laughs with new friends was incredible. The rooms are wonderful whether you stay in the lodge as we did or the 'Honeymoon suites". We had the time of our lives, I hope we remain friends with all those we met and spent time with. We will never forget this magical place and it is. There were tears in our eyes when we were leaving, we have never experienced such an amazing vacation, it was more than that but I have no words to explain what I mean. Just go and find out for yourself. And to all of you, From Bernard who own the place and has the perfect vision on what Vuyani should be, to the mangement team, guides, chef's, staff that clean your rooms, that serve you drinks and keep the monkey's away while your outside, I raise my glass, salute you all, and wish you all the best, happiness and success. Keep Vuyani the magical wonderful place that we experienced. Thanks you all
