Hoedspruit (Afrikaans for Hat Creek) is a town situated at the foot of the Klein Drakensberg (Afrikaans for "Small Dragon Mountains" range), in the Limpopo province of South Africa, on the railway line from Tzaneen to Kaapmuiden.
The Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre located in the Limpopo Province was established in 1991. A businessman from Pretoria, Mr Strijdom, owns the farm on which the Centre is situated. The rehabilitation centre was established and is run by Brian Jones. Moholoholo is actively involved in ‘problem animal’ control on farms and in tribal areas. The animals are removed from the area where they are unwanted and relocated to an area where they are welcome. This is done at Moholoholo’s expense.
Hoedspruit Air Force Base is a significant contributor to the local economy. The civil Eastgate Airport, which shares the Air Force base's airfield is, as of February 2012, served by South African Express, several charter operators as well as general aviation.
