Spring is around the corner once more!The ideal time to take a walk on the wild side ...
Here at eKhaya Bush Villa the days have been getting longer and warmer and the air is filled with the anticipation of spring, which is literally just around the corner. All over Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate the knobthorns are flowering already with their distinctive yellow catkins standing out against the otherwise dry and dusty bush that will stay with us now until the rains come (hopefully around November).
The wild animals of the estate are often seen at the various dams, making this the ideal time to take a walk on the wild side and spend time in one of our hides to see what comes down to drink. Over the next few weeks we will expect to see some of our African migrant bird species start to arrive – we’ve already seen a few yellow-billed kites patrolling our skies, so this is the perfect place for keen birders! Don’t forget your binoculars!
There’s so much to see and do in the area around Hoedspruit – it really is the ultimate base from which to explore the Greater Kruger region now that the restrictions on inter-provincial travel have been lifted. And eKhaya is ideal for groups of friends and families to come together and spend some quality time with one another after not seeing one another for so long during lockdown.
With the Kruger National Park just a short drive away, as well as a range of wonderful private game reserves on our doorstep, the game viewing in this region is the best in South Africa and we offer a range of options for guided game drives, from full days in the Kruger to morning and afternoon drives on nearby reserves.
We hope to see you soon!
