    More rustic than other accommodations but feels more authentic. Fantastic staff and guides! The watering hole across from the communal area a huge plus! Very knowledgeable guide and attentive and gracious staff..

    Hi normid2 - Thanks for your question. Hoyo Hoyo has 6 double rooms and none of the rooms are able to accommodate 4 adults. Two game drives daily, one in the morning and one in the afternoon are included in the rate.
