    Beautiful location, wonderful views. I love the shower outside the hut. Dinner was delicious! Hopefully we can come back to Shayamoya. When we left we met some buffalos on the property! Very nice place.

    Shayamoya offers functional and stylish accommodation coupled with great staff, views and atmosphere. The view from the chalet balconies over Lake Pongola and the mountains beyond are stunning. The rooms are roomy and comfortable, love the outdoor shower.
