Wow! Having read some of the reviews prior to arrival I was hopeful of a memorable experience and Hoyo Hoyo didn't disappoint!! The lodge is fantastic and given the maximum occupancy is only 12 people the setting and service is simply fantastic; the staff were extremely attentive, very hospitable and friendly!! Nothing was too much trouble! At the rear of...

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...

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.
