Biyela Lodge is a testament to the modern safari lifestyle. It is tiered on a descending cliff overlooking an oxbow lagoon in the White iMfolozi River. The lodge is home to 12 private villas. Biyela’s clean, minimalist theme provides the perfect contrast to the ever-green Zululand bushveld.

The Private Villas

exclusive luxury in the umfolozi wilderness

Each private villa comes equipped with a modern lounge area and its own balcony.
The balcony is the ideal place to view the wildlife that roams the thicket below.
Elephant, buffalo, baboons, crocodiles, hippos and wild dogs can all be spotted
Biyela’s middle chalets flank the main lodge and encompass a wide angle view of
the bushveld, river, cliffs and the beautiful façade of private villas cupping the oxbow
lagoon. Some of the villas are situated lower on the embankment, providing more
privacy and views of the river.

The restaurant and various lounges all lead onto a balcony with a fire pit and rim flow
pool. Our secluded Africology Spa is equipped with two treatment rooms, ideal for a
peaceful revival of mind and body.
Whether you experience the wonder of the wild from the lodge or on a game drive in
the greater Hluhluwe iMfolozi Big Five Reserve, you can rest assured that your
experience at Biyela Lodge will be an exclusive one.
