Hoedspruit was established on agricultural ground around 1869. The region is well known for farming and wildlife, nature scenery and the mountains which surround the region.
Due to the climatic conditions in the region, citrus farming and mangoes are the primary source of sustainable income to the region. This mixed with the natural environment of bushveld is unique to the region when compared with places like Ceres in the Western Cape which is not bushveld at all.
This also creates a secondary source of sustainable income in tourism, game hunting, fishing and site seeing.
Hoedspruit has secondary industries of light engineering works which is primarily focused on maintenance of farming implements.
The town is well established with a mixture of architecture which in many instances mirrors the bushveld with thatch roofed homes, rondavels and farm style homes mixed with the more conventional and then the modern homes which are fashionable.
The schools in the region cater for a large local community. These schools include Jonkman Primary School, Balule Primary School and H H Thiele Primary School.
The town is located in a farming region thus there are no large retail malls in the town itself but the retail needs are being catered for by The Hoedspruit Mall, The Old Center and Spar Center Hoedspruit.
Property values in the town are driven by the demand for mostly a country or bushveld style of living which is quiet and then for what the properties offer in terms of finishings, architecture and size.
The secondary source of income catering for the tourist industry in the form of guest houses and Bed and Breakfasts is the alternative property use which adds value to the property values in the town.
