We returned to Vuyani in January for a second visit after only a year. It was with some apprehension as I was concerned that, having had such a wonderful first visit it would be difficult to replicate. I need not have worried. The staff remain friendly and focused on offering truly personal service. The guides and drivers know the reserve...

My wife and I stayed at the lodge for only a few days, from 9 to 14 October. We had a fantastic holiday. The accommodation was more than we ever expected and all the staff were so friendly and helpful that we felt as if we were being welcomed back, instead of being newcomers! The catering was amazing as well....
