This is a top notch place, and I am already wanting to go back! The food is divine--and they feed you way too much which means you never go hungry. The huts are fantastic, cozy, and wonderful. It's a new experience showering outside, but it's very freeing! For those less comfortable with showering outside, they also have an indoor tub. The guide and safari was outstanding--we saw the big 5 almost everyday including the more elusive leopard. (We spent probably 30 minutes with him...amazing! We were withing 15-20 feet of each animal. I highly recommend Hoyo Hoyo you won't be disappointed!

As we checked out the neighbours, ...
... it gets warmer they lie down and rest; so this was a rare treat. After following the lions for a few minutes, our ranger decided to get ahead of them on the road to give us a better shot with our cameras. And that's when he noticed a herd of three buffalo ahead in an open field. He could barely contain his excitement. The buffalo were completely unaware of the approaching lions, and the lions had not yet noticed the buffalo. And there we were, right in the ...
... were majestic as they passed within a few feet of the vehicle. There were many young elephants with their mothers and one very young elephant stopped to nurse for a few seconds.
Back at the lodge the other three guests had checked out and it was just the seven of us for lunch. There were no elephants today but we saw a Common Waterbuck across the Sabi River.
Two guests arrived in the afternoon from Boulder Colorado. After high tea ...
... it is tipping it down! Had to pop up our tents and find some shelter! We went to a traditional village and were given a tour which was followed by the most amazing African singing and tribal dancing in the coolest circular woven hut. It was loud and authentic and a good way for our trip to begin! We were made a traditional meal of chicken stew, pap (like porridge ...
