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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

I could not have asked for a better time. This is the only way I want to experience the bush from now on. The lodge was so comfortable and the staff completely professional, friendly and caring. We ordered our food well and our brilliant chef superseded our expectations. We ate like kings and saw lions on every single drive. Both... More

Words can not actually describe how amazing our stay was at Djuma, from the first day when I sent my enquiry to find out if they could accommodate us, to even after our stay their customer service has been beyond excellent.  Candice and her staff went out of their way to assist us, with every little request and trust me...

We stayed at Vuyatela to celebrate a friend's 40th. It was a phenomenal trip. The lodge is well maintained and the rooms are immaculate. The main lodge has a pool and lots of space to socialize. Rooms 1 and 2 have private pools. The lodge had a view of the watering hole. The website has a webcam of the view... More
