A very friendly, efficient and creative staff. A typical African decor in the natural environment of the savanna, with a nice balcony from where we could watch wild animals drinking water from a hole. Independent nice round rooms with no place to put the clothes. No internet in the lodge. Very good safaries. I would recommend it!

Super location and great staff. 2 safaris per day and a close look at many animals. Our room was cleaned every day and changed from a day layout with the mosquito nets tied back to the night configuration quite transparently. Trustworthy and helpful staff in every way.

Hoyo Hoyo was a very enjoyable taste of Africa. The rooms are quaint African huts, but beautifully decorated, clean, and with all the amenities of a very nice hotel. The staff was attentive and very friendly. The meals were delicious and a nice variety of African and European style. One of our meals was under a sky full of stars....

We had a most enjoyable stay here. The accommodation is very unusual compared to other safari lodges, but just as luxurious and comfortable.

Don't miss any of the safari drives and make sure to take a walking safari too! The watering hole across from the lodge attracts game of all sizes. We had a wonderful trip and I would recommend Hoyo Hoyo highly.
