Significantly, Hoedspruit Airport is home to one of the longest runways in the country, at an impressive 3.7 kilometres. The other runway here is 2.1 kilometres. It was revamped and upgraded during the COVID lockdown of 2020 and 2021 and now boasts a spruced-up entrance, boarding area, departure lounge, parking area, and check-in counters. Still, it’s retained its charm and intimate feel.

The Eastgate / Hoedspruit Airport is not only close to Kruger National Park, but is also fantastic for visitors that have booked holiday accommodation in Tzaneen or Phalaborwa. Hoedspruit is popular for its exquisite landscapes and world-class wildlife experiences – a must for the whole family.
