    4/10 Poor


    Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
    Shocking experience. Price tag not justified!
    The only thing luxury about this stay was the price-tag attached. We and another couple were the only guests due to the flooding in Kruger. Until the day of our arrival, we were not advised if we could actually stay… despite checking with Hoyo Hoyo on every possible channel. The service was shocking. The staff clearly did not care about us. For example, our waiter forgot between our starter and mains that we were both vegetarian… At other times we could not find staff to assist us when we had questions. One small positive were the game drives. Hali (our driver) clearly was passionate about his job. Having stayed at several properties with a similar price tag in national parks both South Africa and other places in Africa, this was by far the worst experience and not the luxury promised by Hoyo Hoyo in its advertising.

    One of the coolest places I’ve stayed. The property was gorgeous with the deck overlooking a watering hole, so you get to watch elephants and other animals that come in to drink while you’re having dinner. Our hut was gorgeous and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming.

    Traveled with family
    Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
    The property lied about their amenities. They claim on the internet and with operators to have Wifi and they do not have wifi, not even a land line. If you need to stay in touch with family, your kids back home or work or your business it is impossible. The staff lies and does not want to help. We had to leave the hotel, go back to Kings Camp, and loose our money. They do not consider it fraud to lie to their clients and did not want to refund. In our 6 people group some had kids back home as small as 6 years old and some our own business and payments to make and work. It was impossible for us to stay.
