Expect an authentic encounter with the local Tsonga culture 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 the Monarch butterflies flit past and the geckos scurrying across the deck, or retreat to the comfortable lounge for a quiet read surrounded by traditional Tsonga craft and the light breeze of a lazy afternoon. Savor a tasty Tsonga feast, treat yourself to a long afternoon siesta or indulge in a soothing massage to revive body and mind. Let the rhythm of the Shangaan ease and entertain you, inspire and teach you. Sit on the deck surrounding the open-air fire and stare at the brilliant starry sky as you listen to a storyteller tell tales of local myths and legends.

Guests are accommodated in six circular air-conditioned Tsonga homesteads with traditional earth-colored walls and tapered thatched reed roofs. Tsonga tradition runs throughout these comfortable homesteads; the warm glow of brightly colored walls, traditional ornaments and little embellishments on lamps, door handles and mirrors bringing this local culture to life. Relax on your private deck looking out on to the bush, take a long, leisurely shower in the open air or melt into your comfortable king-size bed for an afternoon siesta.

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 traditional Tsonga 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.

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 and storytelling. 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.
