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. Please see the link at the bottom of this page for the full story of
Vuyatela's beginning and more about the amazing African art. 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. The cultural theme also runs through
activities. After 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. Vuyatela is an expression of modern South African culture. 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. Each of the chalets at
Vuyatela is a collection of buildings joined to each other. The private lounge
is separated from the bedroom by a beautiful Teak deck, which ends at the
private plunge pool. The view from the Teak deck is into pristine African
Savanna with its bounty of animal life. 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.
