We didn't stay over it visited for the day and it was lovely. It is nothing fancy but that adds to the appeal. The food is good, there are zebras and buck wondering between the tables and most importantly my toddler had an absolute ball.Even if visiting for the day pack your costumes as it can get quite hot and...

We stayed over a weekend and were delighted to see the zebra, giraffes, wildebees (gnu), gazelles and various other buck roaming freely amongst the rondavels. Lets not forget the resident donkey, who is a real character!! The rondavels were spacious and well equipped. The buffet breakfast was incredible, but one thing we did not appreciate was that the manager severely... More

We have cycled here. Amazing well marked routes. Staff very friendly. We asked to have meat and fruit instead of cheese. Did it with no hesitation. Waiter was prompt and staff at reception helpful and friendly. The wild animals are well looked after. And was stunning to see baby giraffe with parents roaming freely between rondawels and pool area.

We were blown away by Heia and it far exceeded our expectations in many ways. As a 3 star property at reasonable price we were not sure how good the accommodation would be. We stayed in a 2 bed Rondavel with Dam View in Dec 2014, two adults and three children. The Rondaval was spacious and clean, well maintained and... More

Stayed on business in early November. It's a real treat to have the animals skipping around the grounds. Rooms are basic but full of character - you essentially end up with your own small apartment and veranda. The food is excellent, with service to match. It's a long way out of Jo'burg but a good place to relax. Beware the... More

Wonderful experience. Giraffes, zebras, antelope, etc. on the grounds. Good restaurant. Helpful staff. Cottages all have two bedrooms and a bath. Just 20 minutes from Joburg--nice to get out of the hustle of the big city. 45 minutes to airport by expressway. Bike path on property.

Our family of five had the most memorable stay here! The staff are wonderful, the restaurant is so very good, and the location is perfect. Free WiFi, good cable tv and perfect shower and extra long tubs, playground, pool (when the weather is warm enough), hiking, mountain biking and hot air ballooning all in one place...it seems impossible but not...

Thank you Gabi, Lynette and the team! We and our guests had the most memorable weekend with you! For our international guests a first to be in such close proximity to otherwise wild animals. The service and food, outstanding. Well done! We'll be back as soon as we can.
