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!

We drove back exhilarated and amazed. As we got off our vehicle and were walking toward the lodge, we saw a Huge hyena just at the entrance. It turned to look at us and Pravir very calmly told us not to move. We just stood perfectly still. No bravado here. None of us reached for our ...
... one way with his head and pull the tree the other way with his trunk until there was a mighty crash as the tree fell. Then calmly his family walked through the path that has been left by the fallen tree. It was such a privilege to share in the lives of this pride, just four metres away from where we were parked.
Sundowners (drinks as the sun set) provided us with the opportunity for group photos of the people who had become our Kipama family, ...
... adult and a youngish rhino. We almost got charged, it did that thing in cartoons where it rubbed it's foot along the ground before charging. Pete screamed for me to reverse so I reversed out of there pretty promptly as the rhino did not look happy. Not that rhinos every look happy.
We stopped by the watering hole near our camp and on the way back saw even more elephants and giraffes, I think all in all we saw over 100 giraffes and at least 300 elephants that day it ...
