The distinct thatched peaks peeping over the tree-line with hints of burnt orange flashing through lush Leadwood indicate your imminent arrival at Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge
, set on the banks of the Mluwati River in the heart of the Kruger National Park.
The unique architecture is a celebration of the local Tsonga culture and integrates traditional suites with splashes of tribal design and the earthy tones which define the interiors. The overall effect encapsulates the hearty spirit of warmth and welcoming that is so characteristic of the Tsonga people. Expect an authentic encounter with the local Tsonga culture in extraordinary bush surroundings; the Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s renowned conservation areas and home to the Big Five.
Join the cape-turtle doves and arrow-marked babblers welcoming in a new day as you head into the bush for a feast of the senses; the smell of damp grasses: pinks, oranges and yellows of the gorgeous African sunrise and the hissing of hundreds of crickets preparing for a warm bush day. Spend an afternoon lazing at the infinity pool, watching the monarch butterflies flit past while the geckos scurry across the deck, or retreat to the comfortable lounge for a quiet read surrounded by traditional Tsonga craft and the light breeze of a relaxed afternoon.
Accommodation at Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge
