SAVC Sites & Resources

Below are some local South African Vampyre Community websites and resources:

The SAVCNet Portal 

This is the SA Vampyre Community Network of affiliated and unaffiliated websites, all of which together form the online face of the South African Vampyre Community. This site serves as the gateway to the online presence of the SA Vampyre Community. Its aim is to allow quick access to whatever resource the visitor is seeking.


The South African Vampi(y)re Alliance (SAVA)

The South African Vampyre Alliance is an independent and autonomous organization operating within the South African Vampyre Community. Vampyre culture internationally is diverse in its nature and eclectic in its make-up – and as a local community body, the SAVA is a secular and impartial middle-ground which seeks to act as a voice for our community, our identity group and culture in this country.



The Vampyre Academy

The purpose of the Vampyre Academy is  to support the Vampyre Community by means of gathering all relevant information on the vampyric condition and also about the Vampyre Community in all its forms and presenting it in a manner which can be used to educate.

The South African Vampyre Culture Center

SAVCC small

(Subsidiary of the Vampyre Academy) This was founded in order to create and manage an open and public reference to South African Vampyre culture, and features numerous lexicons of names, terms and jargon used within the community, and a comprehensive breakdown of the basics of Vampyre nature, culture, and history.

The Vampyre History Project


(Subsidiary of the Vampyre Academy) This is a broad chronology of Vampyre and Vampyre-related events in history, collected from a variety of sources IRL and via net-trawls online in order to compile as complete a reference guide as possible and to present it for general public use. This is, without argument, the most complete and detailed free-access publicly visible Vampyre history on the Web! (We know – we’ve looked.)


SA Vampyre News (South Africa)

SAVN logoSA Vampyre News is a news agency established on 6 June 2011 to serve the Vampyre Community in South Africa, providing news coverage on issues affecting the Community, such as its activity and growth, and the gradual exposure of the subculture to the Mundane world.

SA Vampyre Nuus (Suid Afrika)

The Real Vampire Forum


A forum for real Vampyres “where the real vamps are”, also catering for the international community since 2010.

The Dhampire

A modest resource of information on vampyrism with a forum, set up by South African author Lana Lundy. Appears to be more youth-focused with the intention of encouraging romantic young Vampyre minds to write fiction and fantasy.
