Hoedspruit at a glance

They say once Africa gets a hold of you, you are changed forever - and once you have lived in Hoedspruit, living anywhere else would just not be the same.

Legend has it that Hoedspruit, which literally means ‘Hat Creek’, got its name when one of the town’s pioneers took of his hat and threw it into the Sandspruit river after a particularly tiring trek over the mountains in the characteristic Lowveld heat, making an impulsive decision to stay.

And what a decision it turned out to be! Today Hoedspruit is envied not only for its incredible scenery but also its prime location! Situated a stone’s throw away from the Kruger National Park, as well as the Klaserie and Timbavati private game reserves means that residents are in a position to enjoy African wildlife in a way many visitors from around the world would pay handsomely for.
