When my husband and I travel, in order to avoid fights, we each get to choose a place to stay. He chose Hoyo-Hoyo Safari Lodge. Although he chose it, it may very well be my favorite spot in the WORLD. Yes, the WORLD. I am an American, living in Honolulu, sitting on vacation in Perth leaving for Bali tomorrow. I've... More

Hoyo Hoyo was our first stop for our honeymoon. Every second there was amazing, pure luxury. The food was unbelievably good! On our first night we had a sit down 3 course meal with fillet steak for main, perfection. Our second night was a traditional BBQ with our safari rangers. This was great and we got to try some traditional... More

I loved the traditional style, it really added to the safari experience. The lodge had a relaxed feel to it, the staff were friendly but not overly attentive. The thatched accommodation was beautiful. Really comfy bed. Small decked area to sit on & chill. We had a friendly bushbuck come visit us. The riverbed was dry when we were there,... More

Excellent accomodation but because their is hardly any wildlife, safari experience is poor. Also the quality of the food is not very good. Therefore the value for money is bad. Excellent sleeping and nice and very clean rondavels

My wife and I spent four days at the Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge, mostly being driven around looking at wild animals. We saw EVERYTHING: cheetahs, elephants, leopards, hippos, zebras, giraffes, kudu, lots of lions, and many other species. In fact, there was a watering hole just behind the lodge where as many as ten elephants showed up all at once.... More

Private Lodge on own consession in central Kruegerpark close to Orpen gate. Highly recommended for authentic gamedrives with nice and knowlegdable guides. Exellent kitchen and luxurious rooms in single huts and privacy.

Just spent two nights at Hoyo and can now confidently say that you are in capable hands at any one of the three lodges( Hamiltons,Imbali and Hoyo Hoyo). The lodge itself is architecturally unique, and lends itself well to an intimate atmosphere. The rooms are beautifully clean and well maintained, not to mention totally private. We spoiled ourselves with a... More
