Activities in and around Hoedspruit

Hoedspruit is so much more than a quiet little town in South Africa’s lowveld.

It’s the Rainbow Nation’s Big Five safari capital and the gateway to the legendary Kruger National Park.

It’s also geographically blessed, with its western horizon dominated by the impressive peaks of the northern Drakensberg escarpment, carved by the wind and rain of untold millennia into the spectacular vistas of the world’s third largest green canyon – the Blyde River Canyon.

Spread out below this incredible landmark is the vast lowveld and the central and northern reaches of the Kruger and its adjacent private game reserves, stretching all the way to Mozambique and, eventually, the shores of the Indian Ocean.

On a clear day it is said you can see the see from the top of Mariepskop, the highest peak in the escarpment, which at 1,945m towers above this huge expanse of African wilderness, looking out like a silent sentinel.

So, Hoedspruit has the looks and the landscapes, the wildlife and the wilderness. What more could it offer to travellers hungry for adventure and excitement.

Plenty, is the simple answer.

From full-day safaris in the Kruger National Park and gentle cruises on the Blde Dam to hot air ballooning and mountain biking.

Hoedspruit and its surrounds are literally packed to the rafter with a range of amazing activities, day trip opportunities and exceptional experiences, all of which we are happy to arrange for you during your stay at Moya Safari Lodge & Villa
