In brief: Low risk area.

Hoedspruit is a low risk area (not no risk), so you don't have to take meds, but always take precautions i.
e. mosquito repellent etc. If you are planning to go east from there or into the K park, then you should take medication. Enjoy!

In brief: Malaria prophylaxis

Seems like it falls in Limpopo province in SA and CDC does recommend malaria prophylaxis.
