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.

I invited 30 friends from all over the world for a weekend at Heia Safari. Every single one of them loved it: The free roaming animals, the quirky rondavels and the people who make the place: A dedicated team of professionals, who do everything to make all of your wishes come true. From a drinks reception at sunset on the... More

The Heia Safari Ranch is located near Johannesburg, Muldersdrift. Easy to reach in an hour from Johannesburg International Airport. Very idyllic location on Lake Heritage surrounded by many scenic. Already at the entrance gate, you will be warmly welcomed and get a nice view of the bungalow. The system consists of round around very spacious Rondavells and a main building... More

My partner and myself spent yet again a peaceful, tranquil and pampered week end at Heia Safari Ranch - our 3 monthly escape from Sandton (The City) and only a 30 min drive from home. We had reserved the luxury bungalow directly overlooking the stunning Lake Heritage and all my pre-requisites PLUS more had been met. On checking in, Shaun... More

After reading the reviews, this sounded like a lovely place for a Sunday lunch with friends. What a waste of time and money. The food was awful, the restaurant grotty and old. Our 6 year came back from the playground with broken glass! The waiters tried really hard but it's not their fault that this place has far passed it's... More

Because I had heard, via friends, about this Ranch, I decided to make a reservation for our family for Mothers' Day. It is quite a long drive for us to get there. It was a really busy day at the restaurant, but fortunately we had booked a table indoors, as it was a bit chilly outside also. I did not... More
