Vuyani Safari Lodge

Loading up for game drive

All of the staff at Vuyani have been outstanding.  The guides and trackers work hard to find the animals for us to see (this isn’t a zoo, after all!) and in addition, they are educational and entertaining.  They speak British English rather than American English, of course, and sometimes I can’t understand them so I say, “Speak American English, please,” and then they can imitate us quite well and humorously.

The rest of the staff are very accommodating and friendly, too.  The chefs and cooks prepare delicious fare that even our French food blogger guest told me is very good.  I mean, come on, the French know good food, but a French foodie?  She must really know her stuff!

We’ve also enjoyed our fellow guests enormously.  Because Vuyani is small– 7 rooms–it’s very intimate and friendships develop quickly.  Up to 10 people fit in each safari truck but typically, some guests will do an excursion to Kruger, Blyde River Canyon, etc., so we usually have 7-8 on a game drive.  We all eat together, so conversation never lags.  It’s a lively bunch, more on the youngish side but some older folks like us, as well.

So, here are some photos for your enjoyment.
