We had the most wonderful, fabulous time at Vuyani. We were really sad to leave, and even though we’d only been at the lodge for five nights, it felt like we were leaving family behind when we had to leave. I have never felt so emotional, or so much like crying (I was close to tears for hours), when leaving...

Had a seven night stay at Vuyani Lodge. The Lodge staff were exceedingly helpful from day one until the day we left. Nothing seemed too much trouble for anybody and problems and queries were answered or cleared up straight away. We stayed in a honeymoon suite which was superb for comfort and facilities.

Special thanks to Aggie, Krest and Togara for their expert care and making the safaris truly memorable. A great holiday experience, with lots of laughs and unforgettable sights. We couldn't believe how comfortable the bed was - and everyone...
