Travellers' Choice
Experience how the breeze cools you as it blows gently off the great lake up the ridge or join us for one of our speciality Tiger Fishing excursions where the thrill of fighting one of these rare ferocious game fish is simply invigorating. A truly unique bush lodge in Northern KwaZulu Natal where the view from the spectacular setting is particularly breath-taking as you gaze out onto Lake Jozini, the Lebombo Mountains and the Pongola Game Reserves. Privately managed by the Blevin family who have lived in the area for many years, Shayamoya exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere.

I had an amazing, peaceful time at Shayamoya. The staff was so accommodating and helpful. A definite highlight was the food! The pizza was filling and delicious. One negative was that the Chalets are not very spacious. However, the view is superb!

The accommodation was nice but a bit dated for price that one pays for it. The food was very good with a wide selection. Good service and the location is good, just off the N2 national road. Safety and security was good.

Dear Guest Thank you for your review and. Indeed the indigenous gardens are now in full bloom which brings great birding opportunities too. As one of the original safari lodges in the area, Shayamoya holds that charm rather than a modern feel. We look forward to your next visit. Regards Lindy
