Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge has a quite unusual name – but one that suits its unique safari experience offering.
Situated in the private 10 000-hectare Mluwati Concession in the world-famous Kruger National Park, Hoyo Hoyo is where you go if you want to completely escape the world and enjoy a breath of fresh air. In actual fact, Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge is designed to host a maximum of twelve guests!
The lodge pays homage to the local Tsonga culture with colourful thatched ‘rondawels’ located on the banks of the Mluwati River and surrounded by the dense Kruger National Park bushveld.
Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge is actually part of the Extraordinary Collection, which operates several top notch safari destinations in Limpopo and Mpumalanga.
Many of their previous guests agree had many wonderful things to say about the level of hospitality and service excellence that they received from the staff during their stays.

Reviews from previous Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge guests
“The amazing architecture of Hoyo- Hoyo Safari Lodge with its traditional Tsonga units and thatched roofs greet you long before you arrive at the main entrance from where it is perfectly placed on the banks of the Mluwati River in the Mluwati Concession with nothing but the wild African bush of the Kruger National Park around it. The red, brown and burned orange colour scheme just adds to the earthy traditional yet luxurious feel of the lodge. Each of the six units has its own viewing porch, air conditioning, outdoor showers and butler services. Amazing, guided game drives and nature walks, everything you would come to expect from a safari lodge. They serve amazing meals from the wood deck where you can spend your evenings looking at plenty of antelope and big 5 animals across the river.
The perfect blend of African Tradition and luxury,” wrote Rinus Steyn on their TripAdvisor page.
JudyOswestryUK added; “A fantastic stay, we arrived and 5 minutes later were out on our first game drive, the guide was knowledgeable and informative, because of the location of the park, he was able to access areas not seen by other park goers. The food was tasty and the staff were helpful and attentive, but also went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped. The massage also one of the best I’ve experienced. lovely also to know that she and all the staff have a vested interest in the resort. We had forgotten it was all inclusive- so a lovely further surprise on arriving!”
“My partner and I spent 3 nights at Hoyo Hoyo at the start of March, and we both agree that it was one of the best experiences of our lives! The location is incredible, the accommodation is beautiful, the staff are so friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious! And that’s before you even start the game drives. We had 2 game drives a day with our very knowledgeable and friendly driver/guide, Pharance, and with his help we were lucky enough to see lions, leopards, cheetah, buffalo, elephants, wild dogs and much more! I would highly recommend!!” said Matt P.
