  • Loved our visit to HESC we had an interesting tour. The guide was friendly and informative. Highlight were the vultures really amazing  more »
  • Definitely worth it. However, better to visit this first, then go to the big parks and do game drives, otherwise this will be disappointing. Very nice staff who are very fond of all the beautiful animals

  • A must visit place if you around hoedspruit, watching cheetahs walking around you in an open vehicle is just an amazing experience. Plus all the profit goes into the conservation of the endangered animals. A good place to start helping the world
  • Great place to visit and stay. But keep a close eye on the kids - the cheetah spotted ours and started heading straight for the open sided vehicle - was scared off. All fine - but a watchful eye needed in this country!
