The gateway to the Greater Kruger National Park, the town of Hoedspruit lies between the park and the Blyde River Canyon and is surrounded by the largest privately owned conservation area in the world.
The Hoedspruit Airport lies just outside of the town and services over 70 luxury accommodation providers. The airport can handle any size of aircraft and is also well suited to private charter flights. The small Lowveld town offers an array of dining experiences with delicious food often being served al fresco.
The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre engages in the research and breeding of vulnerable and threatened species, notably cheetah, African wild dog and black-footed cat. This unique African wildlife facility focuses on conservation with a holistic approach that includes education the surrounding communities, rehabilitation and anti-poaching.
