Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge

Kruger and surrounds, South Africa

The hotel

Among the Leadwood trees of Kruger National Park, and by the banks of the dry Mluwati River, six thatched domes sprout from the bush. The result is an intimate and memorable space to return to after safari game-drives to see the 'Big Five'. These rustic yet luxurious rondavels may feel traditional, with their earthy tangerine tones, organic materials, and geometric design details, but contemporary wood and glass panels unfold to reveal private decks, giving a modern twist that’s replicated in traveller touches like Hoyo Hoyo’s infinity edged pool, post-safari wellness treatments, and high teas with cakes and pastries.

Outstanding lodge for viewing animals while eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even had an Impala Antelope curled up outside the back deck of my room. Outstanding service, good food and drinks and a genuine African Boma dinner. Game drives with Kyle and Daryl were fun with numerous animal sightings.

The staff at Hoya-Hoya were beyond exceptional. They catered to our every need. We wanted for NOTHING. The safari was AMAZING, the food, speechless. Very laid back and felt like home.

I want to truly thank Given, Ezzy, Goodness, Mooi, Phillip, Tyline, Madala, Idal and our amazing guide, Victor. I can go on and on, but to sum it up, WE MISS EVERYONE ALREADY :) The Densemo Party :) Read less

We even had hyena and leopard coming to… Read more

Our overall experience at Hoyo Hoyo was amazing. My girlfriend is disabled, and the entire staff went out of their way to accommodate her needs. While at the lodge we felt immersed in the South Africa safari experience. There was a constant flow of wildlife at the watering hole which made lunch and lounging on the deck incredibly entertaining. The game drives were great (thanks Ty) and the food was very good. An intense bush walk (thanks Kyle) was one of the highlights of our time in SA. Could not have had a better beginning to our SA journey. Read less
