This unusual travel destination in the Kruger Park provides for a South African safari that encompasses culture and wildlife. An unusual travel destination it may be, but this is still a safari in big game territory, where it is not uncommon to see the Big Five.
The wilderness of Kruger Park is brought to life by professional rangers and the cultural aspect is explained in detail by the Shangaan staff at your traditional safari lodge.
From Johannesburg Airport, you will board a flight to Skukuza, which is another 2-hour safari drive to Hoyo Hoyo Safari lodge. When you enter the park, your South African safari will already start with many sightings of the wildlife en-route to your unique safari lodge. A warm welcome awaits you upon arrival with drinks and a refreshing towel.
For the 2 nights that you are staying at Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge, you will be sleeping in a traditional, yet elegantly furnished hut without compromising on any luxuries. The ultimate combination of the African bush, traditional accommodation and cuisine, as well as the opportunity to learn more about the lifestyle and culture of the Shangaan, provides for a memorable experience. Tonight you will dine under the stars and enjoy local storytelling around the fire.
Early morning tea and coffee will be followed by a morning game drive - this is generally the best time for game viewing and you are sure to have some excellent wildlife sightings! After brunch, you have time at leisure to sit back and be spoiled by lodge staff in a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere.
High tea will be served just before the afternoon game drive which will also give you a chance to experience a night drive out in the African bush. Another exciting evening awaits around the campfire to interact with other guests and your guides.
Today your South African safari in Kruger Park draws to an end with a last morning game drive. Your transfer driver will pick you up after brunch and then it's off to Hoedspruit Airport for your flight back to Johannesburg.
