Hotel Report

Why Stay At Vuyani Safari Lodge

Situated in the foothills of the imposing Drakensberg Mountains, intimate Vuyani Safari Lodge is the only property on Moditlo Private Game Reserve.

The Scoop

Vuyani Safari Lodge is the antithesis to crowded game drive hotels. Its small size of only five rooms outfitted with netted four-poster beds and al fresco showers guarantees quiet relaxation and attentive, personalized service. Sleeping quarters have excellent views of nearby grazing wildlife and so you will not miss having mod cons like Wi-Fi Internet access or flat-screen TVs. Experienced trackers and guides lead twice-daily game drives for guests to see South Africa's Big Five (rhinos, lions, cheetahs, elephants and leopards) roam the 36,000-acre expanse. Upon your return, take a refreshing dip in the infinity pool or partake in other excursions like hot-air balloon rides over the mountain range or flatboat cruises on the Olifants River. Dinner is served on your private wooden deck or you can join a South African braai (barbeque in Afrikaans) in the traditional boma hut.

Insider Tips

Excursions at Moditlo are custom-tailored: Unlike guides for properties in nearby Kruger Park, the guides here are allowed to go off-road on the entire reserve so guests can spend more time observing animals without being interrupted by another tour passing by.

As an unusual perk, guests may pay for excursions a la carte or choose the all-inclusive option, which includes two safaris per day.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Hoedspruit Airport (HDS), Nelspruit Airport (NLP) or Phalaborwa Airport (PHW). Transfers provided by Lodge personnel.

Why We Love Moditlo Private Game Reserve

Spread in the foothills of South Africa's majestic Drakensberg Mountains, the private game reserve is home to incredible biodiversity such as the Big Five and over 400 species of birds, including the rare ground hornbill.

Don't Miss

Outdoor Excursion: Board a two-story flatboat and peacefully float along Olifants River. Marvel at the resident water-based fauna such as hippos and African crocodiles. Out to see more dramatic landscapes? Hike to Blyde River Canyon to view the famous Three Rondavals rock formations and the 660-foot Kadishi Tufa cataract on the so-called Panorama Route.

Best Day Trips: Guides are happy to drive guests to visit the nearby Cheetah rescue center or the private elephant sanctuary just 45-minutes away from the hotel. Or learn about the everyday lives and cultural traditions of the local Shangaan people during a trip to the tribe's village.

Best Point of View: Set out in a hot-air balloon across the Drakensberg Range, Southern Africa's highest, to appreciate the vastness of the land. You can spot wildlife in the bush below or glide over the Lowveld Section of the Blyde River for a change of scenery. Once you touch down again, a guide serves locally produced sparkling wine and orange juice.
About $369 per person.
