Hoyo Hoyo - welcome in Tsonga, it is exactly how you feel when you arrive.
We were greeted with much excitement by Roger and Wonderboy. Friendly and efficient.
We stayed for 4 Nights, and I can't wait to visit this place again.
Rooms/Bathroom: Beds were huge. Rooms were clean and beds were beautifully decorated each night. With a turn down service. Beds were comfortable and I had a good nights sleep every night. Aircon - which serves as a heater in winter, worked perfectly. Bathroom - spacious, lovely toiletries and towels and gowns (bathrobe). The outdoor shower, was an amazing experience. Even though it was freezing at night, I really enjoyed the shower.
Food: What can I say. It was absolutely great. Breakfast was buffet and cooked. Buffet included cereal, cold meats, cheeses and muffins, fresh fruits and yoghurts. Cooked breakfast - English breakfast.
Lunch - although not a big selection, it was enough to fill the gaps. Bread rolls, salad, fruit, fish and meatballs. With dessert.
Afternoon tea - served just before the afternoon game drive. Among the things served, cake and quiche, mini pizza
Supper - we had a different menu every night. 3 Course meal - with two options for each course
And it was all delicious.
Game drives: Morning drives start at 6am in winter, with a 5:30 wake up call. It was such a nice experience. Very cold but they give you blankets and a poncho (but take extras). The evening game drive starts at 4pm in winter.
Our driver Selani, was such a friendly chap, and did a wonderful job
Coffee and tea is served on the morning drive, with rusks.
Drinks and biltong, dried fruit are served on the afternoon drives
Service: The staff are just amazing. Nicholas and Given are the "waiters" and really go the extra mile.
Wonderboy is the night watchman. A friendly and jovial person. Always laughing
Behind the scenes - Lizzie and Goodness the chefs. Really prepared the food perfectly
The cleaning staff did an amazing job
And then the Manager - Roger, he was very professional but so friendly at the same time
There is a plunge pool on the deck at the main building
And a watering hole at the main building, we saw a herd of elephant drinking everyday
Overall I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
If you ever get the chance to go there should be no doubt as to choosing Hoyo Hoyo
Loved this place!
