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!

... deal for the giraffe because not only do they have to spread their legs and reach a long way down, but the volume of blood that could pool into their head when they drink.could cause their head to.explode.

On our four days off I spent some time driving ...
... I was very anxious about the drive to the game lodge since I do not like car travel. It was a long drive, just highway and several slum areas. We even passed through a town called Belfast! The van did make some bathroom/snack stops that broke up the car ride making it a tad more bearable. It was a different situation on the drive back to Johannesburg but I’ll get to that later.
The excitement started the minute we entered the reserve. During our ...
... As a result, it is also easier to see the animals through the thinner winter brush.
We took a bus from our hotel in the Melrose Arch complex to the Johannesburg airport where we boarded a charter flight to the Skukuza airport in Kruger National Park (in the eastern part of South Africa, just north of Swaziland). The 84 YPO members and their families on the flight were going to two different safari camps just outside Kruger National Park. There ...
... with the light on them. We also had some parrots come through was well.
Went for an evening drive and saw some general game and got caught in another buffalo jam where the vehicles in the front of the line were afraid to move slowly through the herd. Finally things got moving and when we were heading back a safari vehicle stopped in front of us and they had spotted a pangolin-----a first for us! We got to see it as it headed off into ...
