Our favourite activity in Hoedspruit

Everybody loves a visit to the Kruger Park or to drive the Panorama Route. But for us the absolute highlight is a 4×4 trip up Mariepskop. It offers one of the most stunning views in Hoedspruit. One which you can often enjoy without any other people around. We have been at least 14 times by now and still love it everytime. It is quite a 4×4 drive up though, so we recommend booking a guided trip.
