Activities

A healer or ‘nanga’ plays an important role at the Lodge providing guests with a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Tsonga people. Dancers and singers, all staff members, jointly promote an African feel.  All the professionally trained staff at Hoyo Hoyo Tsonga Lodge come from the local community  and interact with guests, teaching them the Tsonga ways in a personal manner – usually around an open fireplace or ‘huvo,’ or on the deck outside the main lodge where tribal tales are told before and after dinner.  Upon retiring, guests can look forward to a little Tsonga ‘magic’ as they rest their weary heads.

    - Nomadic Spa experience

    - Safaris in 4 x 4 vehicles

    - Bird Watching

    - Self drive in the Kruger National Park

Activities at Hoyo Hoyo Tsonga Lodge include daily game drives/safaris in “Big Five” country, bush picnics and champagne breakfasts.
