We went the last week of August 2014, and the trip was awesome. To start, we had the experience of seeing all big 5 in our first 2 hours at the camp! Cannot be beat. The staff was great, funny with the kids and the food was a treat every night. Note that there are no fences around this camp,... More

Hoyo Hoyo is located right in the Kruger national, so the location is amazing, also it is open so you can view animals around the hotel at any time. The staff was beyond amazing, very friendly, extra helpful, I would say the hotels greatest asset is their staff. We had dinner and breakfast included, the food was out of this... More

Hoyo-Hoyo was the 2nd stop on our trip to Kruger and following on from Hamilton's (which we loved) it was always going to be a tough act to follow, and so it proved. Hoyo-Hoyo is a basic lodge with perfectly acceptable accommodation and food. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The experience was let down by our guide for... More

Its not that luxury but stuffs are very kind and importantly, you can see all different kind of animals from hotel's deck. You don't even need to go for a drive. Room is also beautiful but we didn't have enough hot water in the evening and heating system is very poor. I had to spend a freezing night.

We booked the entire Lodge for a night and I must say, the lodge is beautiful! However, the totally untrained staff let it down. They had absolutely no idea. For dinner they offered us pork or beef fillet. Nobody asked how we would like it cooked and it turned out to be a disaster. Several times during dinner I had... More

Six couples from our family had booked the entire lodge. The friendly staff were there to welcome us with drinks and a dance. They got to know us personally and remembered our names. The rooms were beautifuly furnished with a viewing deck. The only problem was the outdoor shower which is really cold to use in winter. Hearing the wild... More

We stayed at Hoyo Hoyo in may 2014. Topnotch. In the middle of a private game reserve. It certainly isn't the cheapest lodge but we found it to be worth every rand. The pleasure of not having to worry about your meals, two game drives a day and an excellent and friendly staff made it a perfect three days. We... More
