With a stay at Hoyo Hoyo Safari Lodge in Kruger National Park, you'll be on a river, just steps from Manyeleti Game Reserve. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The property was good-to-very-good and the staff were friendly and efficient. Driver-guide and game drives were good too.
Cons: On the down side, it is rather cold at this time of year in Kruger so having dinner outside was NOT A GOOD IDEA: hot meals went cold very quickly and the lounge area had a large fireplace but no fire.
Pros: Hoyo Hoyo means happiness! As returning guests we have enjoyed once again the overly warm and welcoming hospitality of the Hoyo Hoyo team. Even though we stayed for only 1 night (as last time) they went out and about to make our stay splendid. The cherry on the cake was a bottle of bubbly that we shared with the other guests on our safari car. Talking of which: game drives were exceptional, Victor the Guide is a fan(t)a(s)tic driver and knows the bush better than I do the content of my hand bag. A big thank you to the Hoyo Hoyo community!
Pros: Great get away from it all location including the benefit of no WiFi or phone signal. Staff were very funny and hospitable. We enjoyed their banter. Food was excellent and views over the waterhole wonderful. Watching elephant safely from about 20ft from our breakfast table was an experience. Rooms were clean and well serviced and our massage n one day was one of the best ever.
Cons: Game drive success was a bit mixed. Had a brilliant time watching 8 lions close to the property and the elephants visiting the waterhole were impressive. However, game density in the area seemed a little sparse compared to other safaris. Not sure if going in April with thick lush vegetation impacted the game viewing experience or whether we were just unlucky
Pros: The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. They like to treat each guest as an individual. Food quality was top notch and superbly cooked. Ambience and location are out of this world and very exclusive, which you would expect as this is not a cheap venue.
Cons: Nothing - it was all good
Pros: The staffs always got big smiles on their faces and were willing to help us. See elephants and small owls during breakfast and dinner.
Cons: To renew the road to the camp.
Pros: amazing safaris, wonderful shower with the elephant
When you stay at Leopard Hills in Kruger National Park, you'll be in a provincial park and steps from Londolozi Game Reserve. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a business center, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: An absolute lesson in hospitality. Staff are brilliant, facilities great, game viewing fantastic.
Cons: Having to leave
Pros: The best stay experience we have ever had. The rooms are incredible - luxurious, tasteful and stocked with everything you could desire. We had a lovely view of the watering hole from our room. The food at the lodge is outstanding. The staff is superb - they are friendly, more than helpful, and go out of their way to accommodate any requests you might have. The viewings were fantastic. We saw the Big 5 within our first 2 game drives. Due to the small size of Sabi Sands, the controls on the number of vehicles allowed at any one points, and the wonderful rangers at Leopard Hills, we were able to witness some truly remarkable animal viewings. Absolutely wonderful experience - we cannot wait to come back.
Pros: Absolutely everything!!! Nothing at all to recommend to do better or anything
With a stay at Imbali Safari Lodge in Kruger National Park, you'll be in a national park, just steps from Manyeleti Game Reserve. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: everything, perfect location in kruger national park. our guide was really good. food was delicious, which is surprising compared to the location. staff was friendly and helpful. fantastic terrace which enables to see animals drinking.
Pros: 1. Nice and confortable room 2. Great location within the Kruger park, in the middle of the animals 3. Very good game drive safari with a great guide
Cons: 1. Poor service quality of the staff (except few ones like our guide), not very professional behavior. 2. Very average dinner quality.
Pros: Everything about this hotel was outstanding. What made it especially stand out was the viewpoint to the watering hole where wild animals put on a 24/7 show for you to enjoy. The safaris, food, drinks, service, staff, location and accommodations were top. I will recommend this safari lodge to anyone wanting to visit Kruger!
Cons: We loved it all.
Pros: Excellent lodge! Beautiful, organized and clean! Very nice staff that made our Safari experience exceed our expectations! The games were excellent and the rangers are the best!
Pros: Location superb, attention to details flawless. Treated spectacularly well, in fact I can’t recall any situation where customer service has been better. Many many photos but just a small number attached.
Cons: Nothing that I didn’t like. As I’ve said, the whole time and experience was completely flawless!!!!! I initially thought that the overall cost was high but the memories are priceless - thank you Imbali
Pros: Everything! Magical place. Service was above and beyond. Our guide Suitboy was amazing. Great food and views.
Pros: Super comfortable bed, bathtub overlooking the river, all the animals at the waterhole right in front of the restaurant, the frindly staff, the game drives, all the food.
With a stay at Honeyguide Tented Safari Camps in Kruger National Park, you'll be on a river, just steps from Manyeleti Game Reserve. Featured amenities include multilingual staff, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The location, the quality of the tents and service of staff was great. Everything was catered for and there was nothing more we could have asked for. The elephants walking by during lunch was just a bonus.
Cons: Absolutely nothing
Pros: The location and the staff were great.
Pros: The environment, seeing the elephants right close to the pool, staff
Cons: They charge us a drink (coke) without telling us in advance it was not included Not a big deal but is more about the detail. The lunch a bit limited. Dinner great
Pros: Excellent guides, great viewings, wonderful experience. Great food, warm friendly people.
Pros: We had an amazing time at the Honeyguide Tented Safari! The accomodation set up was fantastic and so unique. Sleeping in the tent at night you could hear all of the animals. The tent was very comfortable with a lovely bed, sofa and bathroom. All types of wildlife walked past our tent too! The meals were delicious. With a two course lunch, three course dinner and snacks you never went hungry. The dining area and pool over look a water hole where animals come and go all day. Our safari guides Twice and Johnson were also incredible. They allowed us to see all the amazing animals and provided lots of information and ensured our safety. Finally the reception staff and wait staff were wonderful. Highly recommend this experience, not just accomodation.
Pros: Awesome tent with nice bed, good food, morning and afternoon tours included in the price
Cons: WiFi is bad (but what do you expect in the middle of nature ;)
Pros: Everything was just perfect : the tent, the game reserve safari, the employees, the food, the timing..... It was good, everything was good.
Pros: Highly recommended as a private reserve stay with very good wildlife viewing. We had booked 2 nights at the end of a Kruger self-drive but opted to stay 3 because we enjoyed it so much. Reasonably priced for a private reserve lodgings, excellent meals, friendly and efficient staff and comfortable accomodation - the electric blankets were a nice touch in May. The brand new (2019) “infinity” pool and pool deck were a very nice addition and the elephants that came to drink there several times a day are a signature touch for this camp. The picture of the water buffalo attached was taken from the verandah of room 4. Manyeleti strikes me as a particularly appealing reserve, albeit seemingly an often overlooked one - nice mix of vegetation types, very good wildlife density, large area (23,000 ha) and very few lodges. Adjoins and is open to both Kruger NP and the much touted Sabie Sand reserve.
Cons: Nothing really. Just expect “comfortable” rather than “luxury” ... and heed all the warnings about locking your things away from the monkeys!
Pros: Game drivers are exceptional and provide a great experience showing all the big 5, Brilliant and John drive us to see Leopard and we had the best drive off road, staff are very friendly.
With a stay at Nkorho Bush Lodge in Kruger National Park, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Mala Mala Game Reserve and Djuma Game Reserve. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Excellent structure, very good game drives, experienced guides. For sure you will see the Big 5.
Pros: It is all about location: we stayed 4 nights and had great sightings of leopards, lions and wild dogs in the first 2 day's. The other 2 day's it was a bit less (no leopards and wild dogs anymore), but that is what happens during Safari. The lodge itself was nice, but overpriced
Cons: The ranger seems to have lost the enthusiasm for the job. He was rude to some guest that did not speak english too well. On the other hand we had a great tracker.
Pros: Amazing place & lovely people! We had the best time here, the rooms were nice and the food was very good. Our guide and tracker (Callum & Chris) were amazing and we learnt so much, and saw so many animals every day - we even had a 'big 5 drive'! We particularly loved the fact that you could be in the pool whilst watching elephants, zebra, warthogs and even a rhino come to the watering hole. Our first safari experience was very special and we can thank Nkorho for that! Would definitely come back.
Cons: The shower door was very stiff (almost got stuck in there) and the door knob in the bathroom kept falling off but these were really minor things and didn't bother us too much!
Pros: We loved the staff and the game drives. Absolutely wonderful.
Cons: Food was hit or miss. Some meals were wonderful (venison stew!) and others were meh (frozen appetizers for lunch?!!). It was unpredictable.
Pros: Such incredible rangers and one of the few Sabie Sands lodges that remains affordable (in comparison to the going rate). the pictures on their website actually undersell the facilities - everything was great. I also know they are undergoing a refurb in Nov but not planning to raise prices. FYI there IS air con. I found this confusing to tell online
Pros: Nkhoro is a small facility, so not more than 16 or so people in the lodge at any given point in time. We are vegetarians and had let them know in advance, and they took great effort to make sure we had vegetarian food at all meals. The staff is friendly and helpful. We saw a leopard mom with 2 small cubs and that was a real treat.
Cons: The size of the reserve is very small. They are not allowed to drive into Kruger or any of the other private concessions. The main issue was that we constantly saw constuction/green scaffolding cloth, buildings, and other man-made structures during our game drives, which didn't give much of a sense of being in the bush (we had just spent 4 days self-driving in Kruger, so the difference was stark). Also, the drive to the lodge (esp. via Acornhoek) was terribly nerve-racking - filled with huge pot-holes for several miles and the staff completely neglected to mention this to us. The place is a pain to reach, especially if you are spending time in Kruger. The animals are used to jeeps and people and aren't as 'wild' as they are in Kruger.
Pros: Our stay was excellent, the drives were impressive and the atmosphere was breathtaking
Pros: Wow! Amazing place and amazing staff. The room: very comfortable, nice bathroom and a very cool outdoor private shower! Game drives: I know it’s sometimes more luck, but we saw so many animals it’s crazy!! We had Call as our ranger and Chris as our tracker- they were so nice, and it really felt like they are taking the extra mile to help us see more animals. The place: there’s a waterhole/dam near camp and it brings a nice amount of animals. Food: great food! Very tasty. You will not be hungry here (we actually felt like we were over fed haha). We didn’t go on any bushwalks because we saw so many animals on the drive and preferred to drive a bit more than to walk.
Cons: Really nothing bad!
Pros: Great ranger and tracker - knowledgeable and friendly and determined that we should get the most out of every game drive. Lovely pool and bar area with fab views of watering hole.
Cons: Food was tasty but nothing special.

Pros: Simply amazing!!! Amazing food, amazing staff, amazing room, amazing game drives, Just go, go, go - you will love it!
Pros: Everything. A warm welcome from wonderful staff and we arrived to a delicious gourmet lunch. Off then on our first game drive with our excellent ranger Justin and eagle-eyed tracker Willies- they both clearly love their jobs and their enthusiasm and knowledge ensured we had a perfect safari experience. We were lucky enough to see the big 5 and even saw 3 leopards together. Our room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. We cannot get over the variety and quality of the meals we had. Thank you also to our excellent butler Stan.
Cons: Our only negative was that we had to leave.
Pros: Rooms very confortable. Very Nice game drives. Good excellent !
Pros: All! Especially the staff. Justin, our ranger, who gave us so many insights and background of the wildlife and its preservation, Willis, our tracker, with incredible experience and sight for details, not to forget about his perfect Moccacino (Coffee with Chocolate). Then the staff in the hotel, July and Glory, who read the wishes from our minds, and the managing team (Mike and Tanya). We really felt like being part of the family and would 100% recommend this place to stay for a great and unique experience!
Pros: Everything exceeded our expectations. The staff felt like family after 3 nights. I cried when we left! Can’t wait to return; this is the most special place on earth. Also - they’ve recently undergone a renovation, so the rooms and shared places look a million times better than the photos.
Pros: This was an incredible experience! The staff is excellent and the facilities are top notch. The highlight for us was the game drives. That is why we picked Sabi Sands in the first place, and our Ranger, Erich, and tracker, Service, did not disappoint. They both well exceeded our expectations. They went out of their way to find the species of animals we wanted to see. We ended up seeing all the big five, including a group of lionesses hunting at night and a leopard eating an impala in a tree. This was just in two days. Erich stayed out later than the normal time so we could keep watching the lionesses. You can tell they love what they do and that made the experience all the greater. It was an incredible experience and I would highly recommend. It was quite an investment to stay there for two days but it was well worth it and I am so happy we chose Sambabili and we lucked out with Erich and Service. The other Rangers also seemed excellent by the way and all are very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna.
Cons: Nothing. It was quite an investment to stay there for two days but it was well worth it.
Pros: The lodge is simply a dream, it oversees the savannah and you can see animals drinking water from a pond when having breakfast. The suits are amazing: decorated at their best, beds are super comfy and the private pool is a gem. Moreover the staff is super nice and they are always smiling and taking care of you. Food is superb and the rangers are very knowledgeable and we got to see all of the animals during the game drives. I can’t wait to go back! I really recommend this lodge.
When you stay at Wild Olive Tree Camp in Kruger National Park, you'll be 1 minutes by foot from Manyeleti Game Reserve. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
Cons: Very nice place to stay at in the middle of the bush.
Pros: The place is nice, and dinner with all the rest of guest was very interesting. Nice people from all the world!
Pros: This place is a step up from camping, but not quite “glamping”. Hot water and bathrooms in the tents. All the staff very friendly and helpful. Good food. Great value. And the game drives were fantastic.
Pros: What's an amazing experience in the Wild tree Camp. You are really in the middle of nature ! At just 1km from the Orpen gate. You have your own tent in the camp, with a REALLY confortable and big bed. You have even a shower in your tent made in wood that's so typical. It's not a camping, it's really better than that with all the confort you need. The dinner was so nice, we are all around a table sharing our experience in kruger parc and the dinner is really good. Please be aware that you are in the middle of nature, so mosquitos, spiders and monkeys are in there playground ! You are not in a luxury hotel you have to adapt yourself. And all the staff was so welcome and so nice as everywhere in South Africa
Cons: Nothing, it was perfect for us
Pros: All the meals were satisfactory. Well prepared and sufficient in quantity. For the daily rate charged they could have had a better bar selection.
Cons: Bathroom facilities are a little tired. Some maintenance/replacement of shower heads that are clogged with sand and calcium with the result water sprays everywhere. I dismantled the shower head myself to clean it. Permanent mirrors needed in the bathrooms for shaving etc. Some of the bushes in front of the tents needs to be cleared away just to enable the guests to see a little further away.
Pros: What a location! Very nice setting just outside Kruger park at the Orpen gate. Very lovely meals and comfortable bed. Game drives are in the private Manyeleti game reserve and were wonderful! Nice and helpful staff.
Cons: We had some issues with the shower (gas heater).
Pros: Love this special place! Great african bush experience without the huge expense. Game drives in the Manyeleti Game Reserve, Fabulous local food, wonderful friendly staff... Just love this place!
Pros: Proximity of krugger park gate Tent fully equiped Nice diner
Pros: It is an authentic Safari experience. Inexpensive and somewhat basic. I suspect that in the absence of air con it will be rather uncomfortable in January or February. A good stopover if you are going to go on to have a holiday in parks board properties in the Kruger Park. The staff are charming and helpful and this must be one of the few camps outside the park that caters for travellers on a budget
Pros: Roaring lions in the night, good food, exciting safari’s, camp fire in the evening, nice little swimming pool to chill by when it’s hot... Good times
Cons: We had separate beds, shower was either too hot or too cold. But that are just little things
