There are so many reasons to love Hoedspruit.
Hoedspruit is a town in the heart of Limpopo, South Africa, and is located on the border of the Kruger National Park in a place known as “The Valley of the Olifants”!
This rather little town was relatively unspoilt by tourism but is now a bustling tourism hive of activity, changing this quiet, sleepy spot into a bustling hotspot presenting tourists with a great variety of accommodation and more.
For those looking for a wide range of accommodation in Hoedspruit, the world is indeed your oyster. There is a little something for everyone, and will fit in with most budgets.
Hoedspruit (hat creek in Afrikaans) is a small town with its main focus on tourism and agriculture, within close proximity to numerous private game parks as well the world-renowned Kruger National Park and exquisite Blyde River Canyon.
An interesting aspect of this up-and-coming spot is that it is surrounded by the largest privately-owned conservation area in the world. The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre is all about researching and breeding endangered species, especially the cheetah, black-footed cat and African wild dog. Furthermore, Hoedspruit is one of the most important contributors of agriculture of South Africa with a focus on growing citrus and mangoes.
There is also a helicopter unit of the South African Air Force and air base served by South African Express scheduled flights and charter planes which makes for easy accessibility for those wanting to fly and not drive to this destination.
