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!

The female would be in Estrus and it is a matter of time before they mate if they have not mated already.
After that exciting find, we turned around and went back towards the Lodge, and ...
We waddled back to our bungalow where we slept for an hour – luckily I put the alarm on to wake us up 3.30pm !!!
… and slept we did.
We woke up and splashed some water on to our faces, then got our items together and walked up to the lodge. High Tea is served just before we go out on our afternoon game drive.
Today, the offerings were – ...
... a bike as it.was a hilly route and quite windy, but I jumped on and wound up loving it. It was great to get the 360 views of the peninsula, overlooking the ocean. It was lush with foliage here but we.saw no trees. Ricardo, the guy from Portugal, was very nice and let everyone go in front of him so he could help out any stragglers. Sele, our guide, drove ahead to prepare our lunch. At first the wind made me a bit nervous on the bike, but once I started leaning into it I ...
