Bayala Private Safari Lodge and Camp is a newly renovated family oriented lodge situated 3 hours’ drive north of Durban’s King Shaka airport. Bayala is nestled within a non-malaria, Big 5 private conservancy of close to 30,000 ha of unspoiled wilderness. View lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino amongst beautiful zebra, giraffe and various other plains game with one of our experienced rangers on an open safari vehicle. Bayala Safari Lodge and Camp are within a short drive of each other. Safari Lodge and Camp each have 24 comfortable thatch-roofed en-suite rooms decorated with neutral bushveld colours throughout. Safari Lodge boasts a beautiful and restful lounge, a rustic bar and relaxed, informal dining inside or outside, where our chefs produce a line-up of dining experiences, from a traditional “braai” under the stars to delicious hot and cold full English breakfasts and lunches served in the lodge or on the veranda.

We had 2 fantastic days at Bayala, the accommodation was very comfortable, food was delicious and was so nice that the chef introduced himself to us. Dave, Michelle and team made us feel very welcomed and the game drives were tops, we were so blessed to see all that we did. We are looking forward to going back next April.... Thanks everyone

Super disappointed in our room . Aircon was broken and was so loud couldn’t sleep . Needed the aircon because it was humid every night . Asked for a king bed in advanced didn’t get. Probably the worst sleep we have ever had because of that aircon

Terrific venue with great friendly staff . Family wedding was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Managed to view Big 5 plus loads of extras . Only negative , which was has nothing to do with the resort , was the poor conditions of the roads travelling from Airport to resort, Loads of potholes so be aware.

Beautifully maintained new lodge. Although not 5 star we were so impressed with all the amenities, excellent value for your money. The rooms were really lovely, comfortable having all necessities including tea and coffee station. The staff were really friendly and we experience nothing but excellent service. The bar and pool area is so pretty and all meals were delicious. The game drives were fabulous, we got to see 4 of the big 5. There were no collard animals and waiting in “ques” to view a sighting. We can I wait to visit again and would definitely highly recommend this reserve to family and friends It truly is a wild life bush experience to remember 😉👌🏻
