So often the memories of a good previous visit are tarnished when you choose to return. Not so for us at Hoyo Hoyo. We were there in Feb 09 and had a wonderful safari experience. Back we came in November and everything was as we wished, except the weather! Rain for four days and four nights but even that did not detract from the expectations we had brought with us from the UK. The lodge rooms are more spacious than they appear from outside, they offer every comfort, the food is first class and our Ranger Dennis was excellent. We had enjoyed the company of Ranger Elvis previously but our disappointment on hearing that he had moved on was soon dispelled, Dennis's company and humour was a joy despite him suffering the worst of the weather on the front of the safari truck. Hoyo Hoyo offers the best of all worlds, you have the pleasure of an excellent private luxury lodge operating as they do within their private concession but in addition they can traverse all of the Kruger Park. We saw all the big five and virtually every other species that lived in the area of the park we chose as our location.
One criticism we would make is that some of the furnishing are becoming tired. ie Curtains, floor matts and cushions in the room, all need replacing to ensure standards are upheld.
