Loved the two hour tour, the vultures flying in was awesome but thoroughly enjoyed every moment, from start to finish. We were welcomed and felt totally at ease. The curio shop was lovely, Jassie our.... more »
Awesome experience for school children to see how conservation in South Africa is done to help animals that have been injured due to human interference in nature. They make a large contribution to helping cheetahs and and other animals to rehabilitate so they can live live the best life that they possibly can according to the situation that they are in. Children are taught that they must think about what they do and use and how they can then contribute to helping nature thrive in their habitat so that the animals don't have to live in rehabilitation centers.
What an amazing experience seeing those beautiful cheetahs up close. The people were friendly and you can tell they love what they do. A must visit if you in the area
What a nice place. Had a wonderful breakfast and saw some cheetahs as well. Nothing more to say. Wonderful
This was a fun short stop to make if you’re in Hoedspruit doing a Kruger safari. I thought this was a great supplement to other experiences here as you get to see Cheetahs and rhino. You can tell their mission and goal to rescue, rehab, and release animals is genuine and well-intentioned. Fun short tour in a open safari vehicle to see the animals. Their curio shop and canteen are also a nice place for a pit stop. Did my research on rescue places to visit and glad I visited HESC while in Hoedspruit!
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
