Stephaniehawks stayed here on May 15, 2013 during their trip titled: Around the World .
... 5pm drive at what passed for the local shopplng centre but did have a nice pizza & ice cream. We got over to the camp to find a giraffe by the entrance. On the drive we saw our first lion - the local boss known as Big Boy, what we know call the usual suspects ( impala, warthog, zebra etc) and a family of giraffes.

... but when the mouse returned in the night Nick wasn’t so amused . Also woke up with a gecko on my arm ( not for long ) then the monkeys kept trying to break in when they decided they couldn’t just sat around on the bbq picking at it and making a right racket – not the magical animal noises I was hoping to drift off to sleep with.

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!
