About
Description
Bayala Private Safari Lodge and Camp is a newly renovated family oriented lodge situated 3 hours’ drive north of Durban’s King Shaka airport. Bayala is nestled within a non-malaria, Big 5 private More conservancy of close to 30,000 ha of unspoiled wilderness. View lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino amongst beautiful zebra, giraffe and various other plains game with one of our experienced rangers on an open safari vehicle. Bayala Safari Lodge and Camp are within a short drive of each other. Safari Lodge and Camp each have 24 comfortable thatch-roofed en-suite rooms decorated with neutral bushveld colours throughout. Safari Lodge boasts a beautiful and restful lounge, a rustic bar and relaxed, informal dining inside or outside, where our chefs produce a line-up of dining experiences, from a traditional “braai” under the stars to delicious hot and cold full English breakfasts and lunches served in the lodge or on the veranda.

Bayala is situated in Northern Kwa Zulu Natal about 30 km North of Hluhluwe. The closest airport is King Sharka outside of Durban. You could hire a car from there. JHB airport is too far
