Hoedspruit District

Hoedspruit, directly translated into Afrikaans means, Hat Creek, is a small but beautiful suburb in Limpopo and is situated at the foot of the Klein Drakensburg.

Hoedspruit - where at first there was only an outpost shop, a bank agency and a rondavel serving as a station building, there is today a friendly town with numerous businesses and a growing population. Hoedspruit, on the Selati Railway line from Phalaborwa to Kaapmuiden, is the heart of the central lowveld, and is conveniently situated for enjoyment of typical Lowveld attractions.

Hoedspruit ("hat creek") acquired its name when, after a long trek over the mountains into the heat of the Lowveld, one of the pioneers removed his hat and threw it into the cool waters of the Sandspruit River and decided to stay. The town is a premier eco-tourist destination for visitors to game lodges and private reserves. With its ever-present views on the Drakensberg escarpment and abutting the Kruger National Park, Hoedspruit is surrounded by beautiful game-rich countryside and has a distinctive rural charm.

Here towering cliffs meet endless expanses of bushveld, the realm of the "Big Five", where vast plains, covered with marula, acacia, combretum and mopani woodlands, stretch as far as the eye can see. Come and enjoy over 80 common mammal species, close on 400 bird species and a variety of amphibian and insect life.

While you are here, remember too that this was the cradle of mankind. Early stone age tools, rock paintings, ruins of stone walls and iron smelting works tell pieces of the ancient tale and the folklore of the Pedi, Tsonga (Shangaan) and Venda peoples - rich with imagery that is part of the African heritage.

So return to where it all began and enjoy one of the last unspoiled regions of Southern Africa. Come to the Hoedspruit region in the central Lowveld heart of the Valley of the Olifants. Meet the local people and discover their customs, crafts and traditional lifestyles. Hike, ramble, view game. Choose to stay in exclusive private game reserves, such as the Timbavati - birthplace and home to the magnificent White Lion, or choose more affordable game lodges, chalets, holiday resorts, bed & breakfasts or secluded camping sites. Soak up the experience of the central Lowveld, a place of crimson sunsets, kindled fires and the haunting call of the wild.

Activities and Attractions:
If the wilderness is your kind of adventure, then this is definately for you. There are hiking trails and wilderness trails full of thrills and fun from waterfalls to caves and gorges to spring waters. This is an experience not to be missed. Another exciting and fun filled day for the whole family is River Rafting where you will enjoy the different rapids and views from the water.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
