GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT sitting in your open safari vehicle when a herd of elephants’ passes by. Or what about a picture with a rhino, buffalo, leopard or lion?!
THE BEST animal PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the Kruger National Park.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go on a safari drive, driving the Panorama Route or enjoying a boat cruise on the Blyde River.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit African Summer Spa (in walking distance of BushGlam), a day shopping in Nelspruit or just relax at the house with a good book or movie.
I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS all year round, BECAUSE the climate is sub-tropical with mild, dry winters.
MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS from the comfort of my self-catering home or at Sleepers Restaurant.
FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST Safari Club Restaurant, but also Ollie’s Restaurant is a good one.
MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Hat & Creek, TRY THE fantastic Game Platter or their delicious prawns from Mozambique.
MY FAVOURITE Italian SPOT IS Cala La Pasta.
FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY one of the many restaurants in Hoedspruit.
IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO Kalimambo Pub & Grub in Kamogelo Shopping Centre.
Hoedspruit’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS Cotton Club @ Bombyx Silk Farm, just outside Hoedspruit.
MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS an early morning or late afternoon Big 5 Game viewing or visiting one of the restaurants for a lazy lunch.
FOR SOME CULTURE, I LIKE TO GO TO Shangana Cultural Village.
TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO hang out in our own Jacuzzi with a nice glass of bubbles.
IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY a Helicopter ride, Hot Air ballooning, White Water Rafting or walk the Skyway trail in Hazyview.
MY FAVOURITE DRIVE IS the famous Panorama Route.
MY FAVOURITE clothing and accessories SHOP IS Details of Africa.
IF YOU’RE HERE IN July, JOIN IN THE FUN AT Hoedspruit Wildfees or if you’re visiting towards the end of September join the Sustainable Living Festival.
MY FAVOURITE GALLERY IS Monsoon Gallery, just outside Hoedspruit.
MY FAVOURITE TREE IS the Marula tree in our backyard, FOR ITS fruits which are used to make Amarula liqueur. But of cause do not forget to visit the famous Glencoe Baobab Tree.
TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS Jessica the Hippo.
BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS a self-drive game viewing in Kruger National Park.
WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO enjoy a Helicopter ride or the Hot Air ballooning.
THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS all those vultures around Mohololo Rehabilitation Centre every end of the day.
WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I support the ‘Stop rhino poaching project’.
I Love Hoedspruit BECAUSE it’s a special place so close to the real animal world!
