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!

It was around this time too that we heard of the hunting ...

It was quite remarkable. The animals were definitely aware of us and after assessing if we were a threat would carry on with their chewing or whatever. I'm referring to giraffes, zebras, bucks, impalas and the like. It is an entirely different story with predator animals. This ...
... day, with Eoin and I starting our onward journey at 7.15 am. We agreed it would have to be something spectacular to beat the experience of Kipama. What a fantastic entrée to game life it had been.
As I write this latest blog, we are now at Kruger airport awaiting our flight to Zambia and our next 3 night adventure in Livingstone and the Victoria Falls.
... in the sun. A jackal approached warily and kind of circled him for some reason. The Lion could hardly be bothered.
That night we went on a guided night safari. We saw 4 African Civets and a few Hyenas and Vultures. There was a dead Giraffe that they had been working on. And as we headed home, we saw a lioness walking towards us on the road.
On day 5, we saw a huge Eagle Owl with red eyelids and a blue beak. It looked like a ...
... is huge, it's so set up they have a restaurant, shop and Wi-Fi! We had some lunch at the take out restaurant that wasn't half bad and was really cheap. After choosing a cosy spot to put the tent up, we headed off on our afternoon game drive. It's so good that you can self drive and don't need a 4x4, makes it so much cheaper and you can drive all day if you want to.
We drove out of the camp and to a little bird hide not far away where we saw a crocodile, hippos, a ...
