Perfect for… Discovering the wilderness in African style
Located on an ancient elephant route on the Mluwati River in a private concession within the Kruger National Park, this unique lodge boasts a breathtaking blend of luxury encompassing both warmth and style.
The lodge is steeped in modern day comfort but blends into the surrounding bush perfectly. The opportunity to immerse yourself into some of the rich culture of the Shangaan heritage and traditions will ensure an unforgettable safari experience. The luxury air conditioned ‘beehive’ suites, with earth coloured walls, king-size beds, en-suite bathrooms, outdoor showers and private game viewing decks are charmingly decorated with African fabrics, décor and object d’art that are sourced from the local Tsonga community.
Designer menus offer a traditional taste delicately balanced with European flair. Activities include open vehicle safaris, guided bush walks and Nomadic African Spa treatments.
With some of Kruger’s most spectacular landscapes and an extraordinary variety of wildlife, bird life and plant life within the concession, each safari experience is unique. Guests enjoy a morning and afternoon safari in open 4x4 vehicles.
The early morning safaris are very rewarding with light for photography. Lions are still lively and on the move at this time, antelope are more energetic, and an abundance of birds may also be seen. The afternoon safaris provide an opportunity to see nocturnal animals and perhaps even the elusive Leopard.
During the winter months the morning safaris depart at 06h00 and the afternoon safaris depart at 16h00. In summer the times change to 05h00 for the morning and 17h00 for the afternoon safaris.
Tea and coffee is served before the morning safari departs and in the afternoon you will enjoy high tea before setting off.

Types of accommodation
Guests are accommodated in six circular air-conditioned suites with traditional earth-coloured walls, tapered thatched roofs and folding glass doors, allowing one to fully experience the wilderness.
Tsonga tradition runs throughout these comfortable suites; the warm glow of brightly coloured walls, traditional ornaments and little embellishments on lamps, door handles and mirrors, bringing this local culture to life.
Relax on your private deck looking out onto the bush, take a long, leisurely shower in the open air or melt into your comfortable king-size bed for an afternoon siesta. It’s your relaxing, informal bush experience, on your terms.
Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge is situated on the Mluwati Private Concession within the borders of Kruger National Park, giving you access to an area of the park that is off-limits to the vast majority of Kruger visitors.
The nearest Kruger gate is Orpen (48km), while the nearest town is Hoedspruit (110km). Both Skukuza Airport (78km) and Hoedspruit Airport (110km) are easily accessible, and flights and transfers from the airport can be arranged.
