My boyfriend and I stayed with friends over the weekend, then an extra 2 days by ourselves. It's right on the beach! An absolute must for us, as my boyfriend loves his early morning fishing. Sadly only Tobies and a Sand Shark were caught this weekend. The cabins are open plan/single room, with the bathrooms situated beneath them (each cabin... More

I have been to Vulamanzi twice now, and am going for a 3rd time this weeknd. Each of the times we have gone as a group of about 30 people and booked the entire place out. The accomodation is brilliant for this type of thing, birthdays etc. Because making noise is not an issue. (in moderation) Ocean views with a... More

The view was really amazing. Only thing that bothered us was the train passing by early in the mornings.... not nice to wake up to that.... Otherwise it was... More

Loved Vulamanzi!! Stunning, rugged looking cabins, nestled in amazing vegetation. Loved watching all the beautiful birds in the camp. The monkeys are very sweet, and it was a real treat to see them in the camp!! The service we received from Nick & Colleen was superb, and the staff were friendly and efficient. The place is very well kept and... More

I haven't stayed in a while, but it is an incredibly amazing and relaxing place. Being able to interact with those who visit is wonderful, and just the peace and quiet and serenity are amazing. The monkeys crawling on my roof in the morning were adorable but a little alarming until you get used to them!

This place is a piece of heaven on earth. I’ve been going here for about 4 years and Colleen and Nick are so hospitable and there staff are very helpful. We love the rugged layout and the “In the bush” feeling you get when you there. I would recommend this piece of heaven to anyone who just wants to get... More

This was my first visit to Vulamanzi and Im very disssapointed, the place itself is very beautiful, however the owner of the place couldn't be bothered about his guests. My friends and I stayed there over the weekend and on our last night an incident happened where two of my friends were badly hurt by other people staying there, the... More

This is one of our favourite places on earth. My partner and I love it and each time we stay, we wish it could be for longer. It is an experience for anyone wanting to get away from it all and reconnect with their roots. We’re already thinking when we’ll go back. We first stayed in April 2008 and again... More
