Djuma Vuyatela Back

Kruger National Park

DJUMA Game Reserve

Djuma Game Reserve - part of the Kruger National Park in South Africa - offers guests the choice of three luxury safari lodges: from the magnificent Bush Lodge to the private Galago, as well as the unique Vuyatela. We are African Safaris.

We strive for our guests to leave here with a sense of the magic of Africa. To create an atmosphere of warm hospitality and to see to our guests¡¯ needs with a "can do" attitude. We do our utmost best to show our guests the splendid sights and sounds of the African Savanna without disturbing Nature unnecessarily. We see it as our responsibility to impart our knowledge and to inform our guests, not only in the way of the Savanna, but also of the wider South African culture. We want our guests to leave Djuma Game Reserve at the end of their stay rested and happy with a perfect holiday.



Vuyatela - meaning, "come and visit again" - is an exclusive lodge that has broken the mould of traditional game lodges and is the pride of Djuma Game Reserve. The chalets, with private deck, pool and detached sitting room, reflect local architecture. Builders used corrugated iron and mud to achieve an authentic effect without sacrificing luxury in any way. You will notice that each of the buildings that make-up your chalet, or "Kaya" (Shangaan word for house), is built in a different technique. Some of the "Kaya¡¯s" have abstract patterns painted on the walls and others have even domestic scenes painted on them.

8 luxury suites made up of bedroom, dressing-room and bathroom with bath and outdoor shower, separate lounge, private deck and plunge pool. Air-conditioning, fans, mosquito nets, a telephone and bar fridge.

The main lodge includes a large double deck, outdoor dining, wine cellar, bar overlooking the watering hole, indigenous aquarium, suspended bird-watching tower. There is also an internet library with detailed wildlife websites, gym and relaxation room.

We also offer daily tours to a nearby Shangaan village, where you will learn about the customs and traditions of the local people.

The golden rule here is to pack as lightly as possible.

You don't want to be stuck with a lot of heavy baggage that you might not use anyway.

Space will be at a premium in the safari vehicle and also if you are going to be using a light aircraft to get to the camp.
