Daily Hoedspruit & Belfast Shuttle
Hoedspruit, located between the majestic northern Drakensberg Mountains and the Kruger National Park, is a hidden gem with unmistakable charm.
Farmer Dawid Johannes Joubert named it “Hoedspruit” after a notable episode in 1844, when a strong cloud burst forced the river, now known as Zandspruit, to flood swiftly and he lost his hat in the surging river. As a result, he dubbed the river “Hoedspruit,” which translates as “Hat River/stream/creek”.
Safari Link provides a regular shuttle service between Hoedspruit and Belfast.
The South African Air Force’s 19 Squadron is based at Air Force Base Hoedspruit and the civil Eastgate Airport, which shares the Air Force base’s runway, is served by several charter companies and airlines.
Visitors love to enjoy a cruise on the Blyde Dam right in the heart of the Mighty Blyde River Canyon, spending a day on the Panorama Route exploring the Potholes, Three Rondavels, God’s Window and so much more, but ultimately the nearby Kruger National Park offers them an action-packed experience in an open safari vehicle.
Belfast (now called eMakhazeni) is situated on the Highlands Meander tourism route of Mpumalanga, near the Drakensberg escarpment and about 210km east of Pretoria.
It is one of the coldest towns in South Africa, with a rural atmosphere due to its cattle, dairy and sheep farming activities.
