Stacks Image 365
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 1h

We start with a bit of driving (towards Hazyview) and then follow the Sabie river into the mountains. From the town Sabie we go north. Along the Route we'll have many stops, to enjoy viewpoints and tourist attractions such as Graskop Gorge, God's Window and Bourke's Luck Potholes.

Absolute highlight; at the end of our tour, we stop at the viewpoint over the Blyde River Canyon, the 3rd biggest canyon in the world. Can you spot Kruger Cliffs?

(full day)
R 1750
per person


Entrance fee included
Stacks Image 393
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 30min

A full day of game driving in Kruger National Park, in a private, open vehicle! Or in a closed vehicle (SUV) should you desire that. With a private and FGASA-certified guide. We go in at Orpen gate. From Kruger Cliffs to this gate is one straight (nice & quiet) tar road. The section we visit is arguably the best section of the park; we avoid the crowds in the south, as well as the boring mopane blocks in the north. What roads we will drive? Where our nose takes us! We might do the Mohlabetsi River bed, or do the Talamti-Sweni route, or drive the famous S100 …or a combination of these!

Absolute highlight; who knows? Safari is like a box of chocolates…

per person

Entrance fee included
Stacks Image 407
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 10min

Moholoholo takes care of all wounded animals or "problem animals" in our area. Wounded animals are restored back to health, and released into the wild, if possible. Problem animals (typically unfortunate individuals that ended up in the wrong place) are captured and released where it is safe to do so. Moholoholo provides these services free of charge. To make ends meet, they provide tours at their centre.

Absolute highlight; going into the vulture enclosure, where a tour guide flies vultures to his arm.
 
 

Rhino trekking
(1/2 day)

R 1150
per person
Stacks Image 523
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 45min
Only available for ages 16+

A walk on big 5 territory is always something special. Your senses are heightened. There is no barrier between you and nature. On such walks your specialist guide normally focuses on the "little things"; insects, tracks, grasses, droppings, etc. But in this specific case your guide's task is also to track down rhinos. We can't guarantee that he succeeds, but thanks to his knowledge he has a success ratio that is higher than 90%! The reserve where this takes place is no less than 23000 Ha in size, but due to the current poaching issues we cannot mention it's name. We hope you understand.

Absolute highlight; finding that rhino, and spending time in it's presence, without it knowing that you are there.
 
 

Klaserie reserve
game drive
(1/2 day)

R 900
per person
Stacks Image 535
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 30min

Game drives on private reserves with open borders to Kruger are the ultimate safari experience; away from the crowds, going off road, being able to spend time in an animal's (very close) presence. But to be able to participate in such drives you normally have to book a room on the private reserve. There's exactly three exceptions we know of, two of which are on farms very close to civilisation. We offer those as well, but the third option is clearly the best one. This game drive takes you deep into Klaserie Nature reserve, and the guides there share sightings over the radio, which gives even better game drive results.

Absolute highlight; on at least one in four drives we have a leopard sighting. We hope you get to see it on your game drive!
 
 

Kinyonga Snake
handling course
(1/2 day)

R 800
per person

Entrance fee included
Stacks Image 421
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 30min

Kinyonga reptile centre is one of the best of it's kind. Donald Strydom is one of the most knowledgeable persons in his field, and has worked with David Attenborough a number of times. You will learn a lot from him, as he escorts you through the centre.

Absolute highlight; the moment you put your first dangerous snake in it's container, using the right tools and knowledge, and you understand these creatures should not be feared, but simply respected.
 
 

Jessica The Hippo
visit (1/2 day)

R 600
per person

Entrance fee included
Stacks Image 435
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 20min

Jessica was found at the doorstep of Tonie, a warden of Kruger National Park. She was born prematurely, and washed away from her mother in a flood. Tonie took her in and raised her. By now Jessica is mature and free to go wherever she pleases. But she decides to stay with Tonie. Unlike the rest of her species, Jessica is not aggressive at all towards humans. Quite the opposite!

Absolute highlight; giving Jessica a kiss on the nose (a privilege only women get)

R 800
per person

Entrance fee included
Stacks Image 449
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 15min

Kruger Cliffs is literally at the door of the Blyde River Canyon Reserve. Your guide will take you into the valley, a short but scenic drive. We will stop at a waterfall, and then drive on to the Blyde Dam. Here you will do a cruise of about 1,5 hour. The boat takes you all the way to the back of the dam. Can you spot the crocodiles and hippos?

Absolute highlight; can you see the little ants crawling about on top of the mountain? There's people there! If you book the Panorama Route tour, you'll be able to enjoy their viewpoint.

Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 20min

A short drive takes you to the starting point of all balloon rides at the banks of the Blyde River. From the air you'll have an amazing view over the lowveld as well as the mountains. We go where the wind takes us! After about 1,5 hours we land in a field and enjoy a breakfast with a nice glass of Champagne.

Absolute highlight; spotting plains game from up in the air. More difficult than you think. Until you spot your first animal.
 
 

River tubing
(1/2 day)

Contact us
for prices
Stacks Image 477
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 15min

The Blyde River is only a short drive from Kruger Cliffs doors. Enjoy a morning or afternoon of pure fun on the water! An instructor will give you a quick lesson on how to handle your boat, and will accompany you and guide you through multiple rapids. There's time to do two, or even three runs!

Absolute highlight; Doing a complete run without falling out of your boat. It takes a little practice.
 
 

Guided
Mariepskop hikes
(1/2 or full day)

Prices coming soon
Stacks Image 491
Distance from Kruger Cliffs; 30min

Did you know that you can hike all the way up to the mountain? The famous Mariepskop hiking trails are literally at our back door. There's multiple trails to choose from, but note that some have a starting point far up the mountain, and you'll need a 4x4 vehicle to reach that area, as it's a rather rough road.

Absolute highlight; Reaching the Mariepskop viewpoint on the Mariepskop trail. Can you see Kampersrus in the distance? Can you see our farm?
 
 

This list is far from complete, but it's impossible to list all activities in and around Hoedspruit. For example; you can do game drives on other private reserves such as Balule, Manyeleti and Moditlo. Or you can go horse riding or mountain biking. The list goes on and on. If the above activities are not what you're looking for just contact us and we'll give you some more ideas.
