Very relaxing place half an hour from Johannesburg. Good food and spacious accommodation. We really enjoyed watching animals walking around. They also organise baloon flights (external company), so we will be back for this.

We only stayed over for one night - was just a short getaway from the city for myself, husband and our 2 small children (4years and 18months). Lovely place - really peaceful and tranquil. Grounds are well kept and they have animals roaming around - wildebeest, kudu, impala, giraffes, zebra...so great fun for the kids. Thatched bungalows are simple and... More

Just spent a whole week here (7 nights) running a training conference and found the Heia Safari Ranch absolutely perfect for what we needed. My first trip to S.A, so really didn't know quite what to expect. The setting is fantastic with very well-kept grounds for the main complex, with gardeners and staff cleaning/maintaining things all day long. The rondavel... More

I recently spent several days at the Heia Lodge for a business conference. For the most part, I had a good stay and enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with the African wildlife on the grounds. There was a great assortment of giraffes, zebras, springboks, wildebeests, and other herbivores, roaming freely around the expansive grounds. One of the best aspects... More

We went on a wonderful game drive, surprisingly not in the Heia Park but in the Lion & Rhino park, a (dangerous?) drive in the open jeep along busy roads. However, we loved seeing the amazing animals. Lunch @ Heia was absolutely delicious; their menu was wide-ranging and the food & drinks thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely worth it!

I decided that my son and I needed to "get away" over the Christmas period and celebrate without me having to cook and clean afterwards. My son and I had not had a proper Christmas together in 7 years. We went to Heia Safari on the 24th Dec and because I have been there before, I knew what to expect.... More

The Heia Safari Ranch on Lake Heritage was a fantastic introduction to Southern Africa. I stayed with my three young daughters in one of the spacious bungalows. The wildlife grazing outside our window was just incredible. Giraffes (we loved the baby), zebras, the donkey, zonkey, wildebeest, impala and springbok! Just magical. The owners and staff were so kind and offered... More

When I say amongst, I mean it. The Zebras and giraffs are litterally Walking between the bugalows! The Zebras drink water from the Swimming pool, and you can really study the animals from VERY Close by. When you are there, make use of there Game Drive Option to the Lion and Rhino park. It's fantastic. The optional Hot Air Baloon... More

We stayed here after arriving from Perth and being jetlagged did not want to deal with Joburg and we wanted something more rural and relaxed than the hotels in Sandton. We made a fantastic choice. We mucked up our arrival date and the hotel graciously did not charge us an extra day. The rooms were large and wonderfully 'African', having... More

We had five days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The management and staff were very helpful right from the first contact to make a booking. The setting is delightful, particularly for UK visitors seeing the animals ranging freely in the grounds. The rondavels are spacious and well-appointed, the food was good and reasonably priced, the restaurant staff courteous and... More
