8 DAY HOYO HOYO KRUGER & VICTORIA FALLS EXPLORER

JOHANNESBURG TO HOYO HOYO KRUGER

DAY 1

Today you depart OR Tambo International Airport on an early morning flight to the Kruger Park's Skukuza Airport. (Flight rate excluded) On arrival, you will be met by a driver who will transfer you to Hoyo Hoyo Lodge.

A celebration of African style, from its traditional rondawel rooms to the splashes of colourful designer fabrics and earthy tones defining its interiors, Hoyo Hoyo exudes a hearty spirit of warmth and welcoming. Expect an authentic encounter that prides itself upon a relaxed African ambience in extraordinary bush surroundings; the Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s most renowned conservation areas and home to the Big Five. Join the Cape-Turtle Doves and Arrow-Marked Babblers as they welcome a new day, heading out into the bush for a feast of the senses; the smell of damp grasses, the pinks, oranges and yellows of a gorgeous African sunrise, the hissing of hundreds of crickets preparing for a warm bush day. Spend your afternoon lazing at the infinity pool, watching a parade of wildlife visit to a waterhole to quench their thirst – from the majestic elephant herds, to select members of the cat family such as lion, cheetah and leopard.

MORNING & AFTERNOON SAFARI DRIVES

DAY 2-4

Kick-start your day before the sun rises, dunking a homemade rusk into a steamy cup of coffee before setting off on your morning game drive with your assigned ranger.

Watch as the bush awakens around you; the dew glistens on the webs of the Golden Orb spider and Lilac Breasted Rollers flash their startling sky-blue bellies as they flit past your game vehicle. See wild dogs laze under the Acacia trees and elephants leave their distinct trail as they chomp through the bush at a leisurely pace. Steal a glance at the leopard eating its prey high up in an old Tamboti tree, zebra foraging alongside large herds of wildebeest and impala flashing their characteristic’ as they disappear into the thick brush.

Enjoy a hearty breakfast under the thatched rondawel roofs of Hoyo Hoyo and then retire to your room and relax, laze at the crystal-clear infinity pool or request a bush walk for an up-close encounter with the Kruger. Lunch is a relaxed, informal affair. Served on the deck with beautiful views of the surrounding bushveld, guests are treated to light salads and tasty desserts before retiring to their rooms for an afternoon siesta. Indulge in a soothing massage from the comfort of your private deck, the scents of ylang ylang, vanilla and cedarwood soothing body, soul and mind. Our trained therapists hail from the local community and provide a range of massages, including full-body aromatherapy, foot massages and Swedish back and neck massages.

Afternoon tea served on the deck, heralds the imminent departure of your special evening safari through the Mluwati Concession. Spot a pride of lazy lions lounging casually in the tall grass and the associated warning call of nature’s tattletales, the Grey Loerie, as they inform the surrounding species of impending danger. Sip a sundowner G&T as you watch the sky turn from the brilliance of an African sunset to a bright band of stars; the persistent call of frogs, owls and nightjars accompanying you back to Hoyo Hoyo where a traditional Tsonga dinner feast awaits; a blazing fire the perfect backdrop for tonight’s Shangaan entertainment. Bursting with the day’s extraordinary bush experiences, all that’s left is to retire to the comfort of your traditional Tsonga homestead with nothing but the reassuring sound of the crickets and frogs lulling you to sleep.
