What You Can Expect
Located slap-bang in the stunning Sabi Sand region in Kruger National Park, Hoyo is surrounded by wildlife, and all of its suites offer sublime views of Mluwati River and the sweeping savannah plains beyond it. In between your three Big Five game drives, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy your accommodation and watch animals at the watering hole, adjacent to the lodge.
Leave your Johannesburg hotel early in the morning by air-conditioned minivan, and travel east out of the city to the northern Sabi Sand region. After a journey of roughly five hours, arrive at your luxury lodge, check in and refuel on the lavish high tea (sandwiches, cakes and biscuits) that’s ready and waiting for you.
In the mid-afternoon, head out on a Big Five game drive around the national park with your safari driver. Traveling by open-roofed vehicle, watch out for African elephants, Cape buffalos, lions, leopards and rhinos, all of which roam freely around the park. The term ‘Big Five’ was coined by big game hunters who used it to refer to the most difficult animals to hunt on foot; today, it represents some of the most elusive and exciting animals to see on safari.
Return to your lodge in time for your sumptuous dinner and spend the evening at leisure.
Day 2: Kruger National Park (B, L, D)
Rise early and enjoy a hot drink at the lodge before meeting your driver for a sunrise Big Five game drive. The early hours of the morning are best for spotting the more elusive of Kruger’s wild animals. Watch the bush come alive as the park’s predators finish their nighttime hunting and gazelles and antelopes head to the river to drink. Have your camera ready to capture photos of Kruger’s rare birdlife as you pass alongside the Sabi River, and marvel at the untamed open plains, where zebras and wildebeest roam wild.
Return to your lodge for a late breakfast and relax at leisure until the early afternoon. Enjoy a high tea as your lunch, and then head back out into the park for your third and final game drive of the trip.
Head back to your lodge in time for dinner and enjoy your final night at leisure.
Day 3: Kruger National Park – Johannesburg (B)
Check out early morning and return to Johannesburg by minivan. Your 3-day tour ends at your Johannesburg hotel in the early evening.
