The Charm of Hoedspruit

Hoedspruit is the fun and safe safari bubble in South Africa. The town is growing fast and many tourists come for a holiday in a villa. Some stop for a couple of nights on a big tour and others make Hoedspruit to be their main holiday destination and stay for prolonged times. Sometimes even more than a month. And for a good reason. The town is safe, offers plenty of choices for accommodations, has a growing number of restaurants and there is always something to do. But the main attraction is of course The Kruger Park and the panorama route.

Reasons to not choose a villa in Hoedspruit

As described there are a lot of very good reasons to book a villa when you are visiting Hoedspruit. But it might not be the best choice for everyone. The main reason to not book a villa is for those who want to have prepared meals at the accommodation itself. With a villa you either cook yourself, hire a private chef, get takeaway or go out for dinner. Hoedspruit has plenty of restaurants on offer but you will have to take a short drive to get there, whilst at a lodge you can be at a prepared dinner in a view steps.

Another reason not to book a villa is that not all villas offer packages or services, whilst most lodges offer game drives and spa treatments. It would be a shame to be in Hoedspruit and not go on safari. Many villas however do offer safari packages, spa treatments and game drives, so make sure to select one of those.

Prices of villas in Hoedspruit - expensive or cheap?

There are many options, but most luxury villas are catered towards a mid- to high budget. Which makes sense, as you get to use the whole property in stead of sharing it with other guests. However, a villa can be a lot more affordable than a lodge when traveling with families or groups. As costs can be split between more people. For couples we recommend to look at smaller 2 bedroom villas, as they still offer the luxury private experience, but are a bit cheaper than the larger ones.

To villa or not to villa

Hopefully this article has helped you to understand more of what to look out for when searching for Hoedspruit villas and whether a villa is right for your holiday. We certainly love staying in one, as long as it’s the right one! Nothing better than making a nice braai (barbecue) during sunset, with friends having a cold one in the pool and wildlife strolling by. A private paradise.
