SA Groups Index

These are some of the Covens, Houses and other groups forming part of the real Vampi(y)re community located in South Africa. Sometimes groups change names, grow too large and hive-off, or sometimes fade out and disappear. Such changes will be recorded as we become aware of them.

*Groups are listed alphabetically under the **District in which they are based. In the case of Covens belonging to Houses, these are listed under the same District as their House.

** Districts are numbered according to the order in which they became active in the SA Vampyre Alliance (SAVA).

  1. Mintaka (Eastern Cape)
  2. Gacrux (Gauteng)
  3. Avior (Western Cape)
  4. Ilyatha (Mpumalanga)
  5. Turais (Kwa Zulu Natal)
  6. Zaurak (Free State)
  7. Adara (Limpopo)
  8. Atria (Northern Cape)
  9. Naos (Northwest)

These also bear names as a consequence of the previous naming convention adopted by the SAVA in 2011.
