My husband and I spent 6 wonderful days at Vuyani and we loved every moment. We were picked up by Andre at the Hoedspruit airport (like the RMNC Traveler wrote, he truly is such a smiley, happy guy), and were greeted by the entire staff upon our arrival at the lodge, a custom that we'd come to experience on a regular basis as we returned each time to the lodge from our adventures. The rain was pretty heavy for the first few days we were there, but the staff didn't let the sogginess slow us down. We continued to take outings wherever we could, and even did some game drives in the rain, which was a great adventure. There was some car trouble at times, as the roads were really muddy, but even when we got stuck it was only temporary, and the guides made even those times a fun and funny experience.
Thank you to Jesse and Pierre for being such knowledgeable and affable guys. Thank you to Michael for a great experience at Kruger. Thank you to Shane and Jarod for your incredible food every day, and to Christopher and Rose for doing so much behind-the-scenes work to keep us happy. Thank you to Rex and to Aggy for protecting everyone at night while we slept. And thank you to Justine and Craig for being the most gracious, funny, welcoming hosts. This was a trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
