So excited for months, then 2 days into came down with Flu. Gosh knows how I managed to blag the thermal imaging at passport control, then bad weather meant a 6 hour dodgy drive to Hoedspruit due to no contingency by SAA. Finally arrived and...More

We first visited the Vuyani safari lodge in 2013 and have been desperate to go back ever since. I was worried that our second experience could never live up to the magical memories of our first visit there, but dare I say that it was...More

Many thanks for your amazing review! It was an immense pleasure welcoming you back here at Vuyani. Indeed, over the years since your last visit, many things have been improved, or added, but what made this place popular from the get-go, has not...More
Vuyani is a very comfortable, welcoming place. All the staff put maximum effort into ensuring your stay is as enjoyable as possible. We had 2 nights in a luxury suite, which was fine. Smallish but functional, in the traditional African rondavel style. And then we...More

February is our summer, it will be steaming hot most of the time and still warm in the evening, Mornings can be a little frisky sometimes on drive, so as Alan already wrote if you think layers all will be OK. As it is summer the African Sun will be unforgiving so hats and sunglasses are a must as well as the sunblock. There may also be the occasional rain shower as it is our rainy season. Ponchos are available from the Lodge.
All stations or stops you may wish to stop at during the transfer do accept Visa/Master card. Most places will have cash points too. You will not require a huge amount of money, rates are very decent in South Africa.
Activities and transfers at the lodge can be paid by card too. You can bring cash spending money for activities off the reserve the amounts are obviously up to you but you can pay by card almost everywhere except for the market if you take the panorama tour.
Tips are totally up to you, management does not get involved but you can tip staff directly.
If you have any other queries, you can contact us directly
