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!

I'm staying on the Karongwe Reserve, a 35 sq mile game reserve in the area, in the NE corner of the country. They've bad a drought here since May, and the area is very dry and scrubby, with a lot of thick, long yellow grass and thick bunches of short/medium height dry, grey scrubby ...
... were even more excited when they found out they were sleeping in their very own bungalow, and, jumping up and down, Catherine proclaimed that she "was never going to leave." Sabi Sabi Selati is an open camp with no perimeter fence, which means that wild animals can roam freely on the property, especially at night. As a result, the first rule of the camp was that no guest could walk around after dark without being accompanied by a ranger. This point ...
Kruger was truly beautiful.
It gave me an appreciation for the interweaving of species and the demarcation and overlap of feeding niches in different biomes.
We spotted almost the whole big five, we were missing a Leopard; which no one saw. ...
