And don’t forget the nearby Klaserie, with its spectacular game and accommodation, including Gomo Gomo Game Lodge, Nthambo Tree Camp, and Africa on Foot.
But there’s more ...
Hoedspruit is also a great departure point for the spectacular Blyde River Canyon — officially known as the Motlatse Canyon — in Mpumalanga. This magnificent sight, among the country’s most significant natural features, is the most northern part of the mighty Drakensberg mountain range.
As well as taking advantage of the fantastic photo opportunities and marvelling at the awe-inspiring view, there is plenty to do in and around the canyon. How about an adrenaline-filled tube or canoe trip down the river? Or some hot-air ballooning?
For a life-changing experience, visit the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. It’s home to vulnerable wild animals and birds that would not otherwise be able to survive. It’s particularly famous for its Serval Breeding Project, which has reintroduced 160 of these extremely rare animals to their traditional wild habitat.
