The safari lodge is located within the spectacular Blue Canyon Conservancy which is more than 36,000 acres large, on the Moditlo Private Game Reserve, just next to the Kruger National Park. Located at the foot of the majestic and famous Drakensberg mountains, it is the ideal destination for safari holidays. The lodge also offers a large range of day activities while staying there.

The Vuyani Safari is the firstsafari lodge on the reserve, and with only 7 suites (3 luxury suites, 2 chalet suites, and 2 river suites), it offers an unrivalled and uniquely exclusive African safari holidays experience.
The reserve is home to all of Africa's large game such as the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, hippo and crocodile as well as some of its rarest species such as the wild dog, the brown hyena and several other species that are in danger of extinction. Nearly 400 different species of birds have been observed, with some of the rarest European migratory birds visiting us in the European winter months of the year. This is one of the best places in South Africa to enjoy an intimate and exciting safari adventure, and to learn all about the breathtaking wealth of wildlife in Africa.
Africa safaris are usually very expensive destinations. The Vuyani Safari Lodge, however, offers the very best rates for a 5-star African safari experience. We pride ourselves on being the most affordable luxury safari lodge in the whole of South Africa. In that sense, we have become a true connoisseurs' lodge, given that we are not bookable via traditional travel agents. The combination of excellent service, breathtaking wildlife and scenery, unrivalled exclusivity, great attention to detail, highest culinary quality, and unmatched value for money have made the lodge one of the most successful African safari destinations in South Africa. We are delighted to see so many of our regular guests visit us every year to enjoy a uniquely relaxing time while on safari with us.
The word safari means "long journey" in the African language Swahili and entered the English language in the late 19th century. It is derived originally from the Arabic word "safra", meaning "journey". Sir Richard Francis Burton, the famous African explorer, is generally attributed to having introduced the word into English.
In earlier colonialist times safaris were mainly hunting excursions, but nowadays Africa safaris are mainly about wildlife sightings and, to an ever larger extent, wildlife protection and conservation.
"Vuyani" means "Come and join us" in the local Shangan language in South Africa. The Shangaan are a large tribe living in the Kruger National Park area, and are the dominant local culture. It is in this spirit that we welcome you to join us at the Vuyani Safari Lodge for a truly unforgettable African safari adventure.
The Vuyani Safari Lodge is the ideal destination for the discerning traveller who is seeking a truly different and exclusive Africa safari experience, far away from the hustle and bustle from city life, right here at Moditlo, in the valley of the oliphants, at the beginning of the African Ivory trail, and the birthplace of human mankind.
