A truly unique bush lodge in Northern KwaZulu Natal where the view from the spectacular setting is particularly breath-taking as you gaze out onto Lake Jozini, the Lebombo Mountains and the Pongola Game Reserves.
Experience how the breeze cools you as it blows gently off the great lake up the ridge or join us for one of our speciality Tiger Fishing excursions where the thrill of fighting one of these rare ferocious game fish is simply invigorating.
Privately managed by the Blevin family who have lived in the area for many years, Shayamoya exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere.
The lodge has 10 different chalets for you to choose from:
Bush Chalets (8 in total)
The standard bush chalets are appointed with stylish elegance. Relax on your private deck overlooking Lake Jozini and the Lebombo Mountains and observe the curious behaviour of the scarlet-breasted sunbird or enjoy a visit from our resident Spotted Eagle Owl, Nandi. The chalets have either King size beds or twin beds and each sleep 2 guests.
Honeymoon chalet (1)
Enjoy private moments in this spacious air-conditioned suite where the view of Lake Jozini is endless, and also a Kingsize extra length bed. The thatched chalets are built of local wood and stone and blend deliciously into their wild surrounding.
Family chalet (1)
This roomy chalet is ideal for families; Mum and Dad enjoy a Kingsize extra length bed, while the rest of the family have fun in the bunk bed and pull out couch. This unit has the spectacular sunset view.
Outdoor showers & En-suite bathrooms for each chalet
Guests gather in the central lodge where they join in the camaraderie and share their happy experiences. Shayamoya offers a fully licensed bar to make your stay pleasantly bubbly.
The Bundu Pot restaurant treats you to sumptuous meals of South African flavourings. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, inviting new and interesting friendships. Traditional braais are held outdoors around the crackling fire and the feeling of true Africa reaches every soul.
