About Us

A few words About Us

Immerse yourself with nature at Route 40. These self-catering chalets are nestled in the heart of the picturesque Lowveld. Situated between the Kruger National Park and the world-renowned Blyde Canyon, in a small town called Hoedspruit, where the warthogs freely roam the streets. This small conservation-orientated town offers many interesting activities and tours for the whole family. We are ideally situated to explore the Lowveld and surrounding areas and can assist you with all your travel needs or tours to experience the Big Five and the Kruger. Whilst staying with us, you’ll experience a lifestyle many people can only dream of …..

Sit around the fire at night and listen to the sound of the jackal calling in the distance to his mate or the hooting of the Scops Owl near your window and wake up to a chorus of bushveld birds singing in the morning.

Come and relax in our bush chalets. Your home away from home. Stay as long as you like! Contact us for tailor-made deals on your accommodation.

“It was just wonderful, thank you very much for the great time we had”

Isabel De Clercq

“What a awesome experience we had!!! Route 40 is not only home away from home but much more. The relaxed atmosphere, very clean and neat self catering accommodation  that we booked for our weekend away is highly recommended. Cristiena Kruger assisted us in organizing a Kruger National Park trip trough Tambuzi Safaris and surprised us with a traditional braai on our arrival back. Route 40 and their staff were amazing. Thank you, we will be back!!!”

“Excellent Route 40. Perfect rooms in a great location! I could not fault this place – warm smiling staff (thx Victor & Lincoln) creative design, sweet smell of bushveld grass and perfect lowveld setting. Overall experience were great! Thx to the owner Cristiena Kruger! Small personal touches like beautiful, colorful paintings, best aromatic coffee, scrumptuous rusks etc are unsurpassedThe beds are amazing and the rooms are the most comfortable yet. Can’t wait for the pool and lapa area to be finished. Will definitely return and would recommend to anyone wanting a special treat in Hoedspruit”

What an awesome place. Well equipped. Well laid out. The house is absolutely stunning and the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. This place is highly recommended and we will indeed return. A special thanks to Cristiena for helping us out with last minute plans.

Pietie Hall Van Heerden

What an amazing place to visit.. the little cottages are extremely well laid out and caters for any taste.


“Had an amazing time with you guys, I will like to someday retire here”

Gert Kruger

“Can’t get enough of Route 40 self catering accommodation. The tranquility of the bush with birds singing while relaxing on the veranda was my highlight in the mornings. Route 40 is highly recommended for a get a way. I had the privilege to go on a scenic flight over the Hoedspruit area that was arranged by Cristiena Kruger. She were very helpfull with all arrangements from booking date till departure. Thank you to all Route 40 staff.”


“We took your advice about the Kruger, followed the routes and saw amazing things, also birds. And Moholoholo was brilliant as it was close by and easy to get to. We were always busy but when we could we sat outside and looked at the mountains. We will definitely come back if we can.”

Div Pretoruis

” Great stay we had in a super nice decorated, clean cottage. In the evenings we sat on the veranda and it felt like we owned our own little peace of the Lowveld, the impala grazing in front of the cottage. The distance from town is just right. It feels like you are deep in the bush yet but have all the luxuries of town probably less than ten minutes away. I will definitely be back when the new pool is done. Thank Christina for making my trip to the Lowveld even more perfect.”

Penny Nunes

Exceptionally comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated chalets which are well equipped. Very peaceful bush setting. Friendly, welcoming staff who are willing to help with anything. An ideal stopover, especially for those on their way to KNP or Moz – plenty of space for caravans and trailers. Also conveniently close to town PLUS very close to a great restaurant- the Thirsty Giraffe!

Nats Stockenström

2 Weeks ago I enquired about accommodation in and around Hoedspruit. We ended up booking at ROUTE 40. What amazing accommodation. The staff were so friendly, the chalets neat, clean and accommodating, surrounded by the bush and calls of the wild. I would highly recommend Route 40 to anyone looking for accommodation around Hoedspruit. Thank you Cristiena, Victor and Lincoln for your hospitality  We will see you again soon!
