The Vuyani Safari Lodge is located on the Moditlo Wildlife Estate within the Blue Canyon Conservancy which is more than 36,000 acres in size. Located within the Greater Kruger National Park area, at the foot of the Drakensberg mountain range, Vuyani Safari Lodge is one of South Africa's premier safari lodges, in the country's most famous area for African wildlife. The Vuyani Safari Lodge is one of only 2 licensed lodges on this reserve, and with only 10 suites, it offers one of the most exclusive safari experiences in South Africa. The reserve offers a unique opportunity to observe all of Africa's large game such as the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, hippo and crocodile as well as some of the very rarest species, amongst others the wild dog, the brown hyena, the ground hornbill, cheetahs and several other highly endangered animals. Almost 400 various species of birds have been counted. Some of the rarest European migratory birds visit the reserve in the European winter months.

I booked with Vuyani for my honeymoon and honestly I am so pleased that I did! There are some things in life you will experience which you will struggle to find the words to explain how they made you feel, and this is definitely one of those places! Vuyani is just exceptional

We stayed at the Vuyani Lodge in mid January and it was our first Safari. We were a family of six (kids of 23,19,17,14) and we had three Honeymoon lodges between us. We flew to Jo’Berg and were collected in a mini van by Juan (Yan, Jan, not sure) and driven for the 5 hours to

Hi, short answer : Yes! :) We have several Cheetah on the reserve of which two brothers who chose to make their territory on the terrain we traverse on :) Makes for great sightings. We also have a growing lion pride who currently has split into two groups.

One driver warned us that the local police target hire cars for bribes. It seemed they get paid very little and are on the look out for bribes, drinks, sweeteners! Lots of big deep potholes but very light traffic. Spectacular scenery so enjoy. Long distances between petrol stations. Don't drive at night.
