Vuyani Safari Lodge South Africa Hotel Review

This place was amazing in all ways. I would not hesitate to recommend this lodge to others as a starting off point for going on a safari. I would consider coming back again, but I would likely go on safari in a different country first. There is so much great wildlife to see in Africa that I would not want to limit myself to the same experience next time I visit.

Many of the other visitors to the lodge filled their day with excursions between game drives. This included an animal sanctuary, a boat ride/hike, a visit to Kruger National Park and more. If we were to stay another day at the lodge, we would have gone on an excursion, but we took this time to rest instead after the crazy pace of travel we set along the way.

The food was excellent for every meal and had a nice home-cooked feel. You won’t go hungry or thirsty at the lodge!

Eating at the Vuyani Safari Lodge From the pictures on the website, I was probably most excited about the food at the Vuyani lodge. Our package included 3 meals, which started with Breakfast at 8:30 AM after our first game drive, a light lunch around 2PM and dinner at 8 PM after our final game drive.

The paths to our room were a mixture of stone and composite decking. Here’s a typical view of our way home to the honeymoon suite.

One evening we had a BBQ  dinner in a traditional BOMA enclosure, which was amazing.

The Vuyani Lodge Grounds The grounds around the Vuyani lodge were well maintained and easy to navigate. Since there are only 5 guest bedrooms in the entire place, you have an intimate feeling with everyone at the resort. We were fortunate that all of the other guests during our stay were awesome people and we got along swimmingly.

The Honeymoon Suite Bathroom I was curious to see if the bathroom matched the photos on the Vuyani website/Jetsetter and I’m pleased to say that it looks exactly as you would expect. Nice stone, double sinks, a shower (not pictures), bathtub and throne room.

The room itself was in the furthest position from the main cabin of the 6 rooms available. It was about a 3 minute walk from the main lodge. Our room featured a mini-bar with a nice stock of still and sparkling water, sodas, beer, liquor and wines. Everything was inclusive as part of our package, which was a nice touch. We hardly needed to use the mini bar, but it was nice to have it there.

I took a photo of the bed during daylight (and without the mosquito net) for those who want a better view.
