Bayala Game Reserve is well worth a visit. I recommend you visit as soon as possible. This game lodge is newly renovated and a wonderful conservation story. It used to be a hunting lodge. The style of the original accommodation has not changed and reminds me of game reserves that I visited as a young adult. Although only three/four star...

We arrived and received a hearty welcome from Dave, the Lodge Manager. We experienced a spectacular storm. Us and other guests gathered on the steps taking photos. We experienced wonderful hospitality by all staff. A worthwhile affordable Family weekend.

Can't start to describe how welcome we felt! Address was wrong on our description, so we called them and they helped us immediately! Once arrived (it's really in the back) the host was extremely friendly and so were the rest of the employees. Singing, making jokes, always laughing and giggling... it was like coming home! Booking a (very) last-minute safari...
