Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

WOW …………….. Where does one start ….. With a Thank you I think.
The Villia – Beautiful, relaxing, food was fabulous, breakfast cooked every morning, dinner something new to try each day and plenty of it, I could go on and on just fantastic.
Our Room – Wow wow wow beautiful - big comfy beds, spotlessly clean, free standing bath, indoor and outdoor shower (something magical about taking a shower outside late at night) big sliding doors so you feel like your outside and a lovely private deck so you can just sit outside and watch the world go by.
Our Safaris and Guides - Jakes, he was absolutely awesome. What he doesn’t know about wildlife is probably not worth knowing. He’s knowledgeable patient and fun and is genuinely happy to see the excitement on our faces when we see one of the Big 5. Mr H who took us to the Kruger park again lovely and was just as excited to see the Big 5 as us and Charles the Panoramic tour again explaining everything and picking the best spots where we could take photos.
My friend and I booked our 7 day safari trip in March - We arrived at Moya as customers and left feeling like part of the family. Thank you to Mike the Mamas and the guides for looking after us and working behind the scenes to make our stay awesome, we can honestly say Mike and his team went above and beyond to make our stay amazing.

My husband and I went for a two day break at the phenomenal Moya Safari Villa.

We arrived late on Friday evening and on arrival we received the most heartfelt welcoming from Mike and his team followed by a home cooked delicious supper.

We booked the honeymoon suite and definitely were not disappointed. It was tastefully decorated with a touch of that modern "African" feel.

From the incredible breakfast, lunch and dinner we received throughout, to being greeted by the biggest smile on every employees face, we couldn't ask for a better relaxing stay.

My recommendation is that you book a minimum of 3 nights. My husband and I felt our stay was too short however very relaxing.

A big thank you to Mike and his team, we'll be back.

My Moya Safari Villa was my home away from home. The manager and staff
were like family. They are so well established within the community and safari circles that I never ran out of things to do. Kruger National Park and several game reserves are just a short distance from Hoedspruit. I saw the "Big 5" several times plus so many other wonderful species.

My 5 star breakfast awaiting me every morning...which prepared me for the fun filled day. I looked forward to the soothing shower and a brief time resting by the pool or lying back on my comfy bed.
In the evening the Chef would prepare a gourmet meal and then we would all share our exciting goings on for the day or share stories of back home.
The Moya Villa is situated on a reserve with friendly game Animals within walking distance to Hoedspruit. My villa opened to the bush with big sliders where I could enjoy the outside on my deck or in my room. I had complete privacy if I wished.
After all is said what really made my trip so memorable was the people. Mike and his staff are all very special. They know what is means to "put the customer first".

Michael and his team went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are more than you need - great toiletries, cold A/C, a French press in the room! We loved laying by the pool, walking through the reserve and using the bikes to get around and saw some incredible animals this way. The design of the villa itself is stunning and I wish we could have stayed longer. This place is a hidden gem and a great way to take a breather before or after a big safari into Kruger!

excellent spacious Lodge in a wildlife Estate . We were a group of six but can accommodate up to 10.Our arrangement included an enjoyable breakfast but for the rest self catering.Relative close proximity to the Kruger Park makes this stunning lodge ideal for travelling around the area or just relax around the Lodge with a friendly owner and staff.

The Team at Moya is extremely hospitable. We were picked up at Hoedspruit town center, welcomed with a drink, showed a lovely new, renovated room for a stay, and the host even spontaneously organized a Nature Bush walk the next morning with a very good guide who showed us Giraffe, Zebra, Warthog and a lot of other micro plans/animals that we would not pay attention to. It was a lovely stay. They have a beautiful pool and dining area overlooking the forest!

We’ve just had the most fabulous stay at Moya Safari Villa. The villa is just beautiful, the rooms are to die for with a beautiful free standing bath tub,out door and indoor showers! There’s tea and coffee making facilities in the room , and the bed is huge and comfortable. It’s spotlessly clean and all staff are super friendly, it really is home from home. The food was delicious and plenty of it 🤣 nothing was too much trouble for them, we couldn’t fault it at all. We had our own guide; Jakes, he was our personal guide that we had all day everyday and he was absolutely awesome. He arranged and took us on our Kruger Park Safari, Panoramic tour and safaris. His knowledge on the wildlife is second to none, and we had the best experiences with him. We would all highly recommend Moya Safari Villa for your SA holidays. It’s a gem 😍🇿🇦❤️

I found this lodge to over deliver against expectation. Mike is impressively urgent in his responses and quietly attentive. The lodge is furnished in a upmarket but ‘not busy’ manner.The bedrooms are a good size with each room having a outside shower facility.The breakfasts were good.There is a dinner option which was very good.I unhesitatingly would recommend a stay here.

Hello Katie - my apologies I only received this now from TripAdvisor. Yes we arrange Big 5 Safari drives on a reserve only about 15mins away from us and confirmed we are around 45 to 60 min drive from Orpen or Phalaborwa Gates into Kruger. And lastly Yes it is really warm in January. Wishing you our very best regards Mike
