Bayala Game Lodge
is a newly renovated 3 star family orientated lodge, consisting of two separate camps within a short 5 minute drive from each other. Safari Lodge (currently undergoing renovations) and Bayala Camp each have 24 comfortable thatch-roof rooms decorated with neutral bushveld colours throughout.
Bayala Camp boasts a beautiful and restful lounge, a rustic bar and relaxed, informal dining inside or outside, where our chefs produce a line up of dining experiences, from a traditional braai under the stars to delicious hot and cold full English breakfasts and lunches served in the Safari Lodge or on the veranda next to the pool.
Bayala meaning “never give in or give up”
- originally a cattle farming enterprise with hunting concession, is now under new ownership and in the process of balancing the ecological system of the environment. Bayala Game Lodge will be integrated into the Munyawana Conservancy by dropping fences within 2017 thus offering game viewing including the Big 5 (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) on the neighbouring Munyawana Conservancy. In the last 25 years the Munyawana Conservancy has expanded their green frontier enabling free roaming of wild animals and focusing on conservation of flora and fauna.
Bayala is centrally situated within easy access to Lake St Lucia, Sodwana Bay, Hluhluwe / Imfolozi / Mkuze Game Reserve as well as Bayete Zulu Elephant Sanctuary/Interaction, Ndumu Game Reserve and Kozi Bay. Many species of animals occur within this haven. The area has rich diversity and an abundance of bird life.
Bayala is an accredited member of The Big 5 Municipality, the Tourism Grading Council, Elephant Coast Tourism and Hluhluwe Big 5 CTO. Bayala Game Lodge is a non Malaria area.
