"Sightings of all famous African game such as lions, elephants, leopards and rhinos"
There are wildlife safari destinations – and then there is the Moditlo Private Game Reserve.
The reserve forms integral part of the 36,000 acre Blue Canyon Conservancy, which lies in the heart of the Greater Kruger National Park area, right at the foot of the famous Drakensberg mountain range.
The reserve offers some of the most breathtaking African safari sightings and sceneries that are to be found on the continent. Stunning views onto the mountains, over 30 lakes, and intimate close-up sightings of all famous African game such as lions, elephants, leopards, rhinos as well as some of the world’s rarest animals, such as wild dogs, cheetahs and Ground Hornbills to name but a few, make this destination a sight to be seen.
Nestled right in the middle of this stunning reserve lies the Vuyani Safari Lodge – a sanctuary of peace and serenity offering the discerning wildlife traveler an African safari adventure second to none.
With only 7 suites, the attention to guests’ requests and personal wishes takes on a very unique meaning. One arrives here as a guest, and leaves as a friend.
On a warm day the spa offering and eternity pool offer ample opportunity to recover from all worldly worry and stress. A long drink on the upper deck, overlooking the reserve and admiring the ever-changing colors of the Drakensberg mountain range – life is beautiful.
And if one feels like sharing these unique moments with their friends and family, free and fast Wifi will make it all possible instantaneously.
Spending many hours with the rangers in the African bush, tracking the world’s largest and most impressive animals, and spending quality time up-close with these impressive creatures will leave memories to cherish a lifetime. And hundreds of photos to sort through.
A “braai” dinner in a classic “Boma”, sitting around a fire, marveling at one of the clearest night skies the world has on offer and listening to the roaring of a distant lion - that is the highlight for anyone who seeks to experience the soul and spirit of South Africa.
Vuyani means “welcome” in the local Shangaan language, and it amply lives up to its name: the lodge is regularly ranked as one of the highest-rated safari lodges in South Africa.
The safari experience on the reserve, due to its exclusive low-impact approach, is of a traditional philosophy, so expect lots of tracking in the bush with your ranger looking for the many animals on this vast reserve. A stay of 5-7 nights is recommended to fully experience most of what the Vuyani Safari Lodge has to offer. This area offers the world’s densest wildlife concentration, so one does not want to cut it short.
Several wildlife conservationists, after having visited the reserve, came to the conclusion that the Blue Canyon Conservancy offers one of the richest bio-diversities one can find in the whole of Africa.
The reserve's immediate proximity to the Kruger National Park makes the conservancy part of a cross-regional effort to save and conserve Africa's natural wildlife for future generations.
Africa safari tourism is key for the future funding of these huge efforts now and in the future!
The reserve boasts one of the most successful cheetah re-introduction programs in South Africa, and the recent (and successful) introduction of the highly endangered black rhino species makes this conservancy one of the most exciting wildlife destinations in the country.
