I went on a short vacation with my girlfriend. We fell in love with this place! The food was great, the room was clean and spacious and the food was delicious. The staff were friendly and professional and shared some insightful tips about where to see which animals at which times (and we saw SO many wild animals - elephants, hippos, zebras etc) We would definitely recommend the Vuyani Safari Lodge and would love to come back again one day!

Just came back from a 5 day safari with my girlfriend. It was great to experience the wilderness with all the luxury that is provided by the Vuyani Safari Lodge especially after almost a full year of lockdowns here in Germany. The room was excellent, very clean and well serviced. There was a free minibar and free wifi. The staff was very nice, accommodating & respectful over our whole stay. They were available to us 24/7. The food on the lodge was amazing, really clean, tasty & varied. We could help ourselves to an open buffet 3 times a day. The staff wore masks and gloves and respected health practices at every step. The safari game drives were by far the best part of our trip! We got to see a lot of animals in their natural habitat, cheetahs, hippos, zebras, lions and giraffes! We would often stop to take pictures. The view and the scenery were incredible and the guides really made the effort to have us make the best out of our trip. The weather was also great!

Just spent 8 days & 7 nights at the Vuyani Safari lodge in South Africa. Rooms were very tidy, clean & fully serviced and with an amazing view. The staff was super friendly and welcoming, they really took the time to tend to me and my friends at all hours. I mostly enjoyed the Safari trips that the we got to go on, we got to see all sorts of animals in the reserve, elephants, cheetahs, hippos, leopard, giraffes, zebras,... The lodge offers the best of both worlds; you get to experience the raw nature while still enjoying the luxuries of high speed WIFI, the free minibar and the 5 star food buffet, all for free! Excellent experience overall, definitely visiting again!

We had a really great time at the Vuyani Lodge. From the arrival to the end we had a wonderful journey. This place is magical and the staff was very kind. About the food we have nothing to say, we enjoyed so much. The game drive were fantastic, better say magical!! As well you can book extra tours during the day per ex: panorama tour (just fantastic), zipline, animal rescue shelter, ulm plane, kruger park etc... We just can recommande the Vuyani lodge. Lifetime memories. Thanks for everything.
