What an amazing and surreal place, Stayed at Galago, which is next to Vuyatela. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, both in the main house and the chalets. Main house had a very homely feel to it with a seating area, outside dining and fire pit area. The viewing deck looks over a waterhole where we experienced a sighting...

Short and sweet. The price was very reasonable for a three-night stay with six 3-hour runs. We saw the big five. The staff (cleaners, cook, and drivers) were amazing. Our drivers were so knowledgeable and kind. Looking forward to seeing Tex again someday. The rooms were very nice! Especially the casitas down the way.

We recently stayed at both Vuyatela and Galago camps with a large 20 person family reunion. It was fabulous in every way! The staff were friendly and happy and couldn't seem to do enough for our group. The guides and trackers: Taxon, Aubrey, William and Fan were extremely skilled and found everything we were hoping to see during our four...

I don't even know where to begin. This was my favorite part of our trip and the most amazing place I've ever been. The lodge is the perfect amount of "luxury" and rustic/natural. The accommodations are spacious and all have outdoor showers where you may be lucky enough to watch elephants, which sounds creepy but is awesome. The game drives...

The lodge is an amazing place with the brilliant staff being so hospitable and making us always feel at home. The Rangers and trackers go out of their way to make each drive a unique and memorable one. Candice and Luzile are an absolute pleasure to deal with and they always have a smile on their face. The whole team...

I have had the privilege of visiting Djuma a few times. No words can describe the photographic experiences I have had there . The secret is without a doubt the expertise of guides like Lex Hes and Chris Stamper. The lodge is beautiful, the staff and cooks efficient ( we took our own food supplies, but the cooks prepared it...

I stayed here with a group in April 2016 - families, singles and couple and all needs were met. It was self catering and with assistance from some great kitchen staff food was great. We had (as one may expect) morning and evening safaris which were extremely well run with excellent and knowledgeable guides and trackers. We saw all the...

Vuyatela is the Sabi Sands best kept secret! The lodge is brilliantly designed with the he right balance of luxury yet comfort that you feel at home and the camp is yours! South Africans just want good game, night drives, off roading and tracking! We don't need the fancy food. Vuyatela have nailed their market and I will definitely be...

Pros: - welcoming staff who were very helpful - beautiful location with maintained facilities - watering hole is small now due to the drought, however animals are still coming to get some water, plus there is a live cam which was very cool - safari started at 5:30 am for several hours, in which we would go out and park...
