Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge at Mluwati

A unique combination of traditional African living and contemporary design make up the six luxury African huts at the exclusive and intimate Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge. Set upon an ancient elephant route in the Mluwati Private Concession, Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge hosts a maximum of twelve guests along the Mluwati river. Hoyo Hoyo main lodge area provides a setting of relaxation and comfort. The lodge pool overlooks a waterhole while an expansive thatch ‘rondawel’ features a cozy, yet spacious lounge area with fireplace. The outdoor timber deck is perfect for outdoor dining while observing animals passing through the expansive bushveld below. 


Mluwati Private Concession is a private game reserve sharing unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. Known for 10 000 hectares of off-the-beaten-track land, its superior Big 5 habitat boasts some of the best game viewing in South Africa. With limited guests, you can be assured of uncrowded wildlife sightings and great photographic opportunities. The rivers running through the reserve make it a drawing card for animals to remain in the area for a drink and attract a variety of birdlife. Expert safari guides endeavour to provide guests with the best wildlife sightings on every occasion. Guests can enjoy an exciting off-roading safari experience and embark on twice daily safaris in specialized safari vehicles, or experience the splendour of African nature en foot with a professional guide.
