ACCOMMODATION IN HOEDSPRUIT
This fantastic little Lowveld town is situated smack in the middle of a number of game farms and reserves and is close to the Kruger National Park. So, while the roads are perfectly serviceable, almost every vehicle in town is a four-wheel drive and is likely to be driven by a khaki-clad outdoor type. It’s a good place for creepy crawlies. The Khamai Reptile Park (formerly the Swadini Reptile Park) is home to an enormous range of snakes and spiders. As well as general tours they run desensitising courses for phobics. Still in creepy crawly territory but much more user friendly, South Africa’s only silkworm farm is just outside the town.
