Stephaniehawks stayed here on May 15, 2013 during their trip titled: Around the World .
Picked up at 515am to get to the starting point of our safari. We ended up being really early and as we didn't make the pre departure meeting we didn't know we weren't leaving until 8am. We were told we would leave at 630am. Our bus is quite old and rickety looking, hopefully it can handle the rough terrain! Everyone on our trip seems nice. Most are Australian, couple ...
... watch them scale these trees so effortlessly.
On our way back from the leopards another vehicle spotted lions on one of the roads and so we quickly headed over in that direction and found two large male lions slowly making their way out of our area. These two are the dominant males for the area and were hunting a male lion (that we had seen the previous day) that had entered their territory. We got to follow them ...
... the fruit would fall down and he could eat it.It was hairy scarey then when he came really close. Unfortunately the rain got into my camera so some photos of the animals are missing or not in focus. Joke. How do you tell a female zebra from a male? The female wags her tail right to left and the male wags his right to left!!!! Sorry have run out of time. Will send the other photos tomorrow.

About 3% of Soweto is white and 97% black, and about 1% of blacks ...
How has this lodge rated in the past?
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!
