Hoedspruit Wildsfees

Hoedspruit Wildsfees
Tucked away in the Central Lowveld, nestled between the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon you will find the small tourism and agriculturally orientated town of Hoedspruit, this is also the home to the Hoedspruit wildsfees.

The Hoedspruit wildsfees was first held on 10th of July 1987 and has since become one of the oldest festivals held in the lowveld region. The festival was originally held around the game auction - when the reserves were fenced in and owned privately, and game movement was achieved through the buying and selling of game. Allthough the auction still occurs on the Friday of the festival it is not on the scale of what it was in the past! It was unfortunate but the 2012 auction was cancelled due to the lack of game but the festival continues! Over the years the festival has moved numerous times, starting at its original location in Swadini, it then moved to the airforce base, and now to the Blyde Wildlife Estate 16km out of town.

There is loads to see and do at the festival including, the Miss Wildfees pageant, a Beer Tent, MTB Race, Fun Run, Horse Rides, a 4x4 route and demo area, Air Shows, free Game Drives, displays from the Moholoholo rehab Centre and Khamai Reptile Park, 1km Bike Speed Trials, Gospel Day Sunday, Flight Simulators in the Air Force Tent, a kids entertainment/area, and venison potjies, wors and sosaties for sale, plus many, many more stalls.
