Hoyo Hoyo is perfect for anyone who wants to stay inside Kruger but still have luxury amenities. Everything that was within the control of the resort was a ten out of ten. The resort cannot control two things: the animals and the guests. Some people are annoying and animals can be a nuisance. Hoyo Hoyo cannot be responsible for this... More

Yes 2008 was the year we first found Hoyo Hoyo, 09 saw us return. Both those visits gave us much joy, fun and first class game spotting we wondered would it be the same seven years on. It did not let us down, in fact it was better than ever. The first big plus is that many of the staff... More

My husband and I went to Hoyo Hoyo with my brother-in-law and his wife. We had a wonderful three days there, the staff were super friendly and very helpful. We stayed in unique looking rondavels which were very comfortable. The outside shower was something we had never experienced before but it was nice and we enjoyed the full body massages.... More

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

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.
