Yesterday we drove into Kruger, on the road in we got stopped at a check point, this was OK but when we were about to leave we got asked if we had bread, with two puzzled faces we wondered if you were'nt allowed to take it into the park for some reason so we asked why did they want to know if we had bread, the answer, because she was hungry!!!! So we gave them a couple of slices then the check she asked us to check the expiry date. One of the most ...
... into the dark bush. We were doing this trip in an open truck so we had rugged up and they were using 3 spot lights held by some of the passengers to spot the eyes of the animals. We felt that seeing the leopard made it worthwhile but we also saw some hippo grazing and a number of birds and scrub hares and of course impalas. We arrived back at the camp site after 10 pm cold and very tired but very pleased we had selected this ...
... the likely animals and saw some beautiful sights along the way. We've been told that the further south you go in Kruger the more animals you'll see. To date we have seen 4 of The Big 5 which includes Elephants, Lion, Leopard, Hippos, Rhinoceros (White & Black). The goal is to see rhinos!
During our drive Peter and I both noticed rhino dung pits. We learned how to identify dung from our 5 a.m. Sunrise Walk guide a few days ago. ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoyo-Hoyo Tsonga Lodge Kruger National Park
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!
