Accommodation: General Information

A truly unique lodge in Northern KwaZulu Natal where the view from the spectacular setting is particularly breathtaking as you gaze out onto Lake Jozini, the Lebombo Mountains and the Pongola Game Reserves. Privately managed by the Blevin family who have lived in the area for many years, Shayamoya exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere. All rooms have flat screen TV’s with local channels, a bar fridge and overhead fans.


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.

Wheelchair friendly
Shayamoya has one chalet that is wheelchair accessible with ramps as access. Please enquire with Reservations for more details.

Outdoor showers & En-suite bathrooms
Getting even closer to nature, enjoy the experience of taking a steamy outdoor shower under the stars. Each chalet is beautifully finished with attention to detail, such as the custom made basins and brass taps in the bathrooms.

Indigenous Gardens
Well manicured pathways link the chalets with the central lodge. Marvel at the extra ordinary indigenous gardens hosting over 60 species of aloes. While strolling from the chalets, you may come across duiker, zebra and guinea fowl that roam around the lodge.
