“Hoedspruit, the gateway to ‘Safari ‘Africa”
Nestled beneath the majestic Klein Drakensberg Mountains, and situated between the Kruger National Park and the stunning Blyde River Canyon.
Just a five and a half hour drive from Johannesburg, 30 minutes from the Kruger National Park, in the heart of the Lowveld. Nestled beneath the majestic Klein Drakensberg Mountains, and less than one hour away from the stunning Blyde River Canyon; this area is an absolute paradise and a much sought after tourist destination.
The 15,000 hectares Blue Canyon Conservancy borders the Hoedspruit town and is home to the Big 5. On the town’s doorstep is the Timbavati and Klaserie and just 40 kms away is the Orpen gate entrance to the Kruger National Park.
Hoedspruit finds itself in an enviable position today because of its access to the private game areas of the Timbavati and Klaserie and now the most recent discovery presented in the Blue Canyon Greater Conservancy. It is evolving from an agricultural town into a world class safari location.
Just a stone’s throw away from the Kruger National Park and is surrounded by game-rich country that makes it an obvious growing demand destination. It has grown into a premier eco-tourism, wildlife investment destination because of its association with some of the best ‘Big 5’ viewing in South Africa.
“The true African ambiance of the Bushveld is unequalled anywhere else in South Africa and this is the ultimate in wildlife areas”

“Wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa and the world”
The world-renowned Kruger National Park located in the northeast region of South Africa, offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa and the world. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares, SANParks – Kruger National Park is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.
Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. Man’s interaction with the Lowveld environment over many centuries – from bushman rock paintings to majestic archaeological sites like Masorini and Thulamela – is very evident in the Kruger National Park. These treasures represent the cultures, persons and events that played a role in the history of the Kruger National Park and are conserved along with the park’s natural assets.
Kruger has one of the greatest varieties of wildlife species on the continent and is a world leader in environmental management techniques and policies, leading in some key research outputs. All set in a natural habitat, free roaming within nearly five million acres that makes up the park.
