We were supposed to stay at a different lodge and the transfer company brought us to Hoyo Hoyo by mistake - and it turned out to be a gift! Hoyo Hoyo agreed to host us for the evening and a morning game drive before transferring us to their sister property for our original reservation. It is such a charming lodge....

Really loved my stay at Hoyo Hoyo, staff are amazing, food delicious and beautiful, quiet accommodation, with occasional wild animals stopping by. Rooms are super spacious with nice outside showers. Definitely worth to visit, especially for 2-3 nights, as the resort is very small and you might find yourself get a bit bored after longer period.

This i by far the most beautiful lodge we've stayed in. It's aesthetically marvelous with its traditional African hut rooms, the staff was just so cheerful, friendly and helpful without going over the top, the food was made to order for every meal and the vegetarian dishes were terrific too. The watering hole was a wonderful bonus - we spent...

This place is every bit of rustic and luxury, which are not two things that find themselves together often. The staff is incredibly accommodating and the rooms are as plush as it gets. Enjoy cocktails in the evening or coffee in the morning and watch the animals move through the bush from the wood deck that overlooks the waterhole. I...

We came to this lodge at the conclusion of a guided tour of South Africa and what a great conclusion to our holiday. We were greeted by extremely friendly staff and that set the standard for the stay, nothing could be too much trouble for them and this was from all the staff. The room was a hut in the...

This place is wonderful. The units are nice, bed is super comfy, staff is friendly (they WILL spoil you), food is yummy, and safari rangers seem to be able to find just about everything! It's expensive, but compared to other experiences, this one is far less expensive than others that are on smaller concessions.

This exceeded all expectations! We are so glad we did this! The weather was great. We saw elephants from our room even. So cool! This was a trip we wil never forget. I hope they get rain soon. The only good thing about the draught is that the bugs were not a problem.
