Djuma Vuyatela Lodge

Accommodation in Sabi Sand Game Reserve


Star Rating:5

Djuma, named from the Shangaan word meaning "roar of the lion" is renowned for the many predators that roam the area, as well as the abundance of general game and bird-life. Djuma is located in the prestigious Sabi Sand Game Reserve. There are no fences between the Sabi Sand and the Kruger Park, thus Djuma is incorporated into the vast Kruger Park ecosystem. The Djuma Game Reserve has access to 10,000 hectares (22,000 acres) of African savannah.

The chalets, with private deck, pool and detached sitting room, reflect local architecture. The cultural theme also runs through activities. Vuyatela is an expression of modern South African culture. 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  even have domestic scenes painted on them. Each of the eight chalets or kayas is secluded in African bush. The bedrooms look out onto teak decks, which end in private plunge pools.

After the morning game-drive guests may accompany their Shangaan guide to his nearby village, where they will have the opportunity of interacting with his family and friends in a very authentic and contemporary African environment.
