We stayed four nights in this luxury hotel after our friend and South Africa bush expert Bridget Booysen recommended this place to us. Anyone going to South Africa, connect with Bridget Booysen at Bushbreaks (http://www.bushbreaks.co.za/index.php/home.html). They got fabulous rates and good suggestions. We were picked up from the Nelspruit airport on time, and had a comfortable 2 1/2 hour ride...

Our 3 day stay at Vuyatela was absolutely perfect from the moment we we arrived and did not disappoint for the entire duration, in fact just when we thought there was no way they could improve they would continually suprise us.

We stayed here on honeymoon and experienced a very similar (although perhaps nastier) incident at Djuma Vuyatela to the stolen necklace report that another person wrote about. We were sleeping on our last night. Someone broke in and opened the key safe whilst we were asleep. They took everything (passports, cash etc). We were disturbed, woke up, but couldn't see...

My wife and I took a vacation of nearly 3 weeks, driving around South Africa and Mozambique. We spent our final two nights at Vuyatela. This property is perfect in every way. No expense was spared in the construction of the cottages along with the furnishings and artwork. All beautiful, the finest quality, spotlessly clean, thoughtfully tended to throughout our...

On my recent visit to South African I was fortunate to spend the nights of August 14 and 15, 2009 at Djuma Vuyatela. On arrival I immediately got the sense this was going to be a wonderfully relaxing stay. The staff greeted us with huge smiles and welcoming handshakes. Instantly I felt at home. Our room was not quite ready...

My husband, myself and 15 year old son spent 4 days at Vuyatela on Djuma Game reserve and can't speak highly enough of the place and the staff.
