As the locals like to say: “Hoedspruit is a drinking town with a tourist problem.” If you’ve been here before you’re bound to be back. It’s the kind of place you’re happy to come back to and about just as happy to leave if you know it well enough. It’s expensive, cliquey, green, quiet and beautiful. It’s growing faster by the day so come see us while we’re still quaint. Have a beer at 8, a braai at 10, a swim at 14, a drive at 17 and a whiskey before bed just to do it all again.

It’s an expensive town to live in. It is surrounded by game reserves so lots of options for safaris.

Hoedspruit is in the heart of the bushveld in South Africa. Here you will find all kinds of wildlife, and fauna and flora. It is adjacent to the well known Kruger National Park, so seeing the Big five is only about an hour’s drive away. The weather is warm in winter and extremely hot in summer, with temperatures reaching around 42 degrees celsius. The crime rate is low, so safety is no issue. Hoedspruit is a wonderful place.

Hoedspruit is one of the fastest growing towns in South Africa. People from all over the country – from all parts of the world – are moving here. Attracting them is of the cost of living, and the proximity of a wide selection of nature and wildlife reserves. Within the town limits, you have everything you could need, like doctors, a dentist, chiropractor, and various shopping centers. Many different safari operators and transfer companies have their offices in town, and the Eastgate Airport is only 15 minutes away.

Hoedspruit is a village on the outskirts of the renowned Kruger National Park in South Africa. The town itself exists to cater for the tourism sector, which keeps the local economy afloat. The scenic area is remote and residents have learnt to live without the luxuries that can be found in cities.

Hoedspruit is a provincial town in the north-eastern corner of South Africa. It lies within the famous Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region, making it an ecotourism hotspot. Although the area is much celebrated for its natural splendour, it can at times be somewhat dull.
