ROOMS

Bayala Private Safari Lodge and Bayala Camp each offer 24 rooms, accommodating up to 48 guests in each lodge. Decor is refreshingly simple, appealing and serene. The rooms have en-suite bathrooms with large walk-in showers, and are equipped with air-conditioning, guest amenities,  quality linens, hot beverage facilities and hairdryers. Standard and Superior rooms are all generously comfortable.

FAMILY SUITES

The family suites have been configured with family needs in mind, making use of interleading doors to link accommodation.

MEALS

Meals are casual celebrations of South Africa’s favourite fire-cooked feasts: the braai and the potjie. For variety of experience, dinners are enjoyed in the stylishly casual atmosphere of the lodge, or around the fireside in the boma where the stars blink in the deep indigo night skies of Zululand.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What should I pack for my visit to Bayala

South Africa enjoys a mild and temperate climate, and even more so here in the magnificent Northern Zululand, KwaZulu Natal. Light, comfortable cotton and natural fabric clothing is best, and in styles suitable for layering. A bathing costume for sunny days and warm jacket for chilly evenings are a must.    A comfortable pair of closed walking shoes and open sandals are recommended in the summer months. Sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, sunglasses, a camera and pair of binoculars will ensure an even better stay!

Are there mosquitos?

By its nature, Bayala is in the bush, in a semi tropical climate zone and in what is referred to as a non-malaria zone. As extra precautions, the windows in all the suites are screened, and there are air conditioners in the rooms which keeps the air moving and insects away. Insect repellent is available at reception, or available to purchase at the shop.

What game are we likely to see?

The game viewing experience is great. The region that we traverse has been a leading conservation reserve for over 30 years and as such, herds are well established, entirely free-roaming but habituated to the green game-viewers we use. We do our best to ensure that our guests get to see the Big 5 during a 3 day stay.

What is meant by the Big 5?

The Big 5 refers to the five wild animals considered to be dangerous and the most difficult to approach. These are: lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and the Cape buffalo

I’m planning my wedding celebration, how many guests can you accommodate?

Bayala consists of two independent lodges conveniently situated within the same precinct. Each lodge has 24 rooms, sleeping a total of 48 guests per lodge, or 96 on the property. Additional accommodation nearby enables us to easily cater for bigger events.
