Bush Walks on Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate
Experience wildlife up close and personal
Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate (HWE), home of Moya Luxury Lodge & Villa, literally offers you a wilderness in your back yard! One of the best things about staying with us is that the estate is home to a variety of wildlife and amazing bird species, so there’s always something interesting to see without going further afield!
The centre of the estate is designated as a green belt and has been left as a wilderness area. It has its own network of roads, hiking and mountain bike trails. As there are no elephant, buffalo, rhino or lion you are able to explore either on foot, on two wheels or four, and even on four legs because African Dream Horse Safaris are based on the estate and offer horse trails for riders of all ages and abilities.
We encourage all of our guests to take some time out of their schedules to explore their own “back yard” and take in the beauty of their surroundings.
Don’t forget to bring a pair of binoculars with you as the birdlife on the estate is truly spectacular with fish eagles and other large birds of prey as well as the smaller, more colourful species, from woodpeckers to sunbirds and canaries. You’ll also see lots of game on your walks, from grey duikers and warthogs to impala and kudu.
There’s also giraffe, nyala, bushbuck, zebra, waterbuck, wildebeest and zebra on the estate, so feel free to go out and explore!
