Understandably, everyone is nervous about travelling to crowded destinations. This is why if you are looking for the perfect social distancing vacation, you should escape to Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge.
Safaris at Hoyo Hoyo mean fewer people per game drive vehicle and more personal dining experiences. In fact, even before the pandemic, this private game lodge could only host a maximum of twelve guests.

Hoyo Hoyo is situated in the 10 000-hectare Mluwati Concession, in the world-famous Kruger National Park.

Reviews from previous Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge guests
“Very nice setting and architecture of the lodge, good waterhole right in view of the outdoor dining area. 6 huts with only 12 guests at a time ensure intimate bush experience. Rooms nicely decorated, albeit a bit small. Outdoor shower in unfenced camp gives you a nice feel of being part of it all. Good food and drink options, attentive service (extra credits to the chef!) Our guide Tylan worked very hard to show us nature in the Mluwati Concession as well as adjacent Kruger NP areas, explained very well and was pleasant to be with. In terms of animals, almost everything around you could wish for, frequent waterhole visits by various creatures but also on game drives a nice variety of game could be seen. Will definitely recommend this lodge to friends, however only if available at special rates,” wrote Jo M on their TripAdvisor page.
499frikkies added; “I’ve never experienced better and well-mannered staff in my travel lifetime. The staff at this place make the experience so much better. Nothing goes wanting, EVER! From the moment we arrived until we left 6 days later it was phenomenal. The food is great and the twice daily game drives are fantastic. If you want to go rest. This is surely the place.”
“My husband and I are normally campers, but this time we decided to spoil ourselves and do the colonial thing. We had the most enjoyable relaxing time at Hoya Hoya. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Accommodation very comfortable. The game drives were the highlight of our stay, we saw the big 5, 3 game kills, lion & hyena interaction and wild dog to name a few. I would definitely recommend Hoya Hoya to my friends and family,” said Viv P.
