I have been at the Ranch twice. Once in 2011, once in 2015. The first time was on a weekend while working in Joburg, we went for lunch on saturday, and spontaneously decided it was so nice that we could stay the night. The restaurant & food are not perfect, there are better places. But it is clean, and there... More

I went on a Game reserve Safari nearby and when I returned to the lodge and went for a walk by the river at dusk I saw all the same animals on the game safari except for the Chita's and lions. The zebra come around noon time to drink out of the swimming pool. If you take advantage of the... More

After first night, I decided to move to a new lodge because the room is too cold and the dirty blanket is not enough. asked for teh refund for the rest of... More

A good place to stay to explore Johannesburg and Pretoria areas. Outof the way and quiet but still within less than an hour to a sights. The restaurant is nice looking but the menue is very poor. Nice is the view from the rondavel with impala, giraffs and zebras walkin around and coming very close Beware of one thing though... More

Heia Safari Ranch is not an expensive venue for a corporate event and stay-over. The conference facilities and public areas are undergoing a make-over at the moment. The conference facilities are fine, and warm in the Joburg winter - and we were well taken care of by Lynne. The dining area and meal options can be improved, 5 of our... More

I have frequented Heia Safari Ranch for many years, and besides the usual friend get togethers, take large groups of people, including overseas guests, when they are in SA, for a meal. It is a beautiful country venue. The sad thing is that now it is under new management. To my surprise there has now been a gate fee charged... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch and braved a potholed road that we found was in the process of being resurfaced. On our way, we saw a number of antilope near the road. Coming into the parking area we found most people were probably there for the various mountian biking trails. Also, a black springbok was ambling... More

I spent there a couple of days for business. We were originally booked at the Ekudeni uphill, but due to some changes they rebooked us into the Heia. And that definitely turned out to be a fluke. The Heia is maybe not the most luxury place to stay but the location is packed with different animals (giraffes, zebras, ...) and... More

This place is not like before unfortunately. The new management in my opinion has done changes that really don't make sense! They have removed the tv and telephone from the rooms. There is no night receptionist. The wifi is useless as no signal is detected in any of the huts! Norbert the chef was very helpful and friendly. On a... More
