The Bayala property purchase and removal of the fences expanded Zuka Private Game Reserve on the western side of the Lebombo Mountains. With traverse over the 10,300 hectares of Zuka Private Game Reserve, came the opportunity to resurrect the two existing Bayala lodges situated within the western sector of the Munywana Conservancy.

Bayala was purchased with likeminded partners who are actively engaged in our shared vision for land under conservation. This partnership, along with the dedicated Bayala team, brings added energy and engagement to the ongoing journey in protecting land and wildlife under conservation and we value their commitment to all that it entails.

With the team’s renewed vigour, Bayala Private Safari Lodge and Bayala Camp, freshly refurbished in welcoming, relaxed safari style, opened their doors to guests in 2018.
