Stayed for three nights at the Hoyo Hoyo Lodge. The staff is wonderful, caring and professional. Food and service where great. Special thanks to Giveandtake and Suitboy. We had two safaris each day and saw elephants, lions, rhinos, giraffes and may more anímals. We will come back.

We spent one month in South Africa, and BY FAR Hoyo Hoyo is the most memorable lodge we stayed at. The atmosphere was amazing, relaxing, hospitable. Our kids had the time of their lives seeing the big 5 (yes, all of them), dancing and singing with the staff, and enjoying the wonderful food. There is really no time to rest--the... More

To the 3 reviewers who gave Hoyo Hoyo a rating of 'Poor': THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH YOU!!! We arrived much later than intended due to getting stuck in the middle of a herd of buffalo. We were greeted by Given, who ushered us inside and showed us our rooms (which are actually small huts). Once the other guests... More

This is not our first visit to Kruger but was one of the most memorable. We love coming back to Africa because of the people and their hospitality and this definitely was the case at Hoyo Hoyo - thanks to Rogers, Jimmy, Suit Boy, Ralph, Given and other staff members. Our usual level of accommodation is 4/5 star and this... More

We are a couple in our late 30s from the UK and Greece. We usually stay in upper-middle or luxury level accommodation. We stayed for two nights and self-drove in and out. The hotel was lovely but could have been a bit better for little extra effort. I may have been harsh in giving 3/5 as in many respects it... More
