All round fantastic experience. The safari drives were amazing, with close encounters like we never expected. We had a 4 night stay and were not disappointed in any aspect, the staff are amazing and very welcoming, the guides really know their stuff and can spot a leopard in a tree before you can see the tree!!! The rooms are always...

We came to Hoyo Hoyo for 3 nights on the first stop of our tour of South Africa and we were not disappointed. The staff greeted you a friendly 'Hoyo Hoyo' welcome which resonated throughout your stay. The room was traditional and luxurious allowing you the experience of an outside shower (only during the day though!). It allowed you to...

Hoyo Hoyo was better than the pictures show and did not disappoint. Our guide, Victor, added a lot to our trip as he worked so hard to make sure our safari experience exposed us to the Big 5. Food and service at the lodge was wonderful. Our safari group of 6 was especially fun.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights as Hoyo-Hoyo. The staff were friendly and attentive and did all they could to make the experience enjoyable. The individual huts are comfortable, well appointed and quiet, and with only 12 guests in total we felt as though we were in our own private haven.

Wow! Having read some of the reviews prior to arrival I was hopeful of a memorable experience and Hoyo Hoyo didn't disappoint!!

We were supposed to stay at a different lodge and the transfer company brought us to Hoyo Hoyo by mistake - and it turned out to be a gift! Hoyo Hoyo agreed to host us for the evening and a morning game drive before transferring us to their sister property for our original reservation. It is such a charming lodge....
