My family & I all enjoyed our stay at Shayamoya - the views from the restaurant are wonderful & the layout of the chalets is very private. You really do feel that you are away from the world. We took a family chalet, which is excellent value. This comprises a large double bed (very comfortable) as well as bunk beds & I think the possibility of a sofa bed as well. The bottom bunk is a little claustrophobic. The room was very spacious as was the bathroom.
Food was delicious - especially the wonderful braai. Bev was an amazing host & could not have done more to help & assist us with our stay. Whilst we were there we managed a round of gold at the local 9 hole course in Pongola - very good, a private rhino track on foot at nearby White Elephant Lodge - we came to within 5 meters of a sleeping black rhino - incredible & rather scary! We also headed up to Tembe Elephants as well as doing the "in-house" drive at the nearby reserve. There are no cats on the local reserve but it is a lovely relaxing way to see the beautiful scenery & certainly enough Giant Orb spiders!
This is a great place to stay for a few nights if you are on a restricted budget. There are a few areas where it could be improved - such as more thorough staff training (bar staff as well as housekeeping) - and with a little more attention to detail could be truly lovely.
