Words can not actually describe how amazing our stay was at Djuma, from the first day when I sent my enquiry to find out if they could accommodate us, to even after our stay their customer service has been beyond excellent.  Candice and her staff went out of their way to assist us, with every little request and trust me...

We stayed at Vuyatela to celebrate a friend's 40th. It was a phenomenal trip. The lodge is well maintained and the rooms are immaculate. The main lodge has a pool and lots of space to socialize. Rooms 1 and 2 have private pools. The lodge had a view of the watering hole. The website has a webcam of the view...

A 6-hour drive from Johannesburg, Djuma is an oasis with lavish accommodations, it's own watering hole, and a private pool to cool off during the hot Christmas afternoons. Vastly different than Kenyan safaris, Djuma's landscape is hot and thick. Spotting wildlife can be tricky, but we didn't seem to have too many challenges. We saw 3 of the big 5...

5 star experience with the added benefit of eating what we wanted, when we wanted. Self catering is the way to go. Warm, friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are so comfortable I missed the morning game drives to luxuriate in bed.

Having made at least annual trips to the Kruger National Park for decades been to other game reserves in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia, the game viewing at Djuma blew me away. Taxon and Fanod found us unbelievable sightings. The lodge itself is very comfortable and Elizabeth and her team worked wonders in the kitchen. We will be back!

My staff and I took over Vuyatela for a fantastic 3 days. The camp staff prepared and served all meals, cleaned up after us and took us on games drives. Apart from that we had the run of the entire camp, determined our own schedule and served our own drinks. This unique setup made us feel that the camp was...

We recently spent 3 nights at Vuyatela Lodge at Djuma Private Game Reserve and wished we could have stayed longer. The facilities at the lodge are world class and the staff compliment were excellent. Each suite is immaculate and comfortable and provides the perfect bush escape, all looking over the fence into the wild Sabi Sands. One morning we had...

This camp sleeps 10 but we came with a group of 7. This actually worked out best because to have 10 people on a vehicle at once would have been a bit crowded. What an experience. It is self catering with an offer of a chef, which many of the reviews recommended and raved about. We chose to just do...

A group of friends and myself spent 3 nights at Galago self catering camp and enjoyed every minute. The camp has just the right amount of luxury without being ostentatious. Kitchen is well-equipped and staff are really efficient. We also had great game viewing in a good safari vehicle. Only small change I would recommend is to equip the ranger...
