‘Kamogelo’ is a Sotho word meaning ‘welcome’. The Hoedspruit mayor opened the centre in January 2004. It is an establishment initiated by Andre’ and Sanet Cornelius. This is a one-stop structure built to house tourism businesses from travel agencies to restaurants and an information centre.
Their vision is to cater for tourism needs in the area because Hoedspruit is situated right on the border of Kruger Park. At the complex there is an information centre that provides information about tourism in the area. Restaurants such as Wimpy are already operational and more restaurants are to follow as the complex expands
