Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge was a unique experience; a small traditional bee-hive styled lodge in the center of the world famous Kruger National Park. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The 3 meals a day are delicious and plentiful. The rooms are small and round, but have everything you need including air-conditioning, bath and outside shower! The highlights of... More

Hoyo Hoyo is one of three bush lodges in a concession on the western side of the greater Kruger Park (we had previously stayed in the two other lodges, Hamiltons, and Imbali) so this was a good option for this mini-break. This is a small lodge with only 6 rooms, so the staff are generally very attentive. However, we did... More

We have over the years stayed at both of the sister lodges to Hoyo Hoyo so this weekend (one night) away completed the hat trick. I would say that Hoyo Hoyo is definitely geared up for the overseas tourists rather than the local market. The accommodation is nice and undoubtedly quaint and the staff excellent, but of all three of... More

I'd like to thank the entire team of Hoyo Hoyo for such a warm and friendly behavior while I stayed there for 2 nights. The place is awesome at the middle of the nature and wildlife. Independent huts are the best addition to the feel and thrill of living deep inside an African forest. Foods were too good and I... More

What A great unfenced lodge in the krugerpark. Absolute wonderfull rooms all standing as separate houses. Because of the drinking place in front of the terrasse you can eat together with eliphants, lions or what so ever. The game drives are excellent.

The staff is friendly and helpful.
