  • We had a wonderfull time. A experienced guide who really went out of his way to give us information. Thank you so much for this opportunity. The leopards and cheetahs are amazing. The environment for these animals are fitting for them. The Rhinos!! To see it is wonderfull. I would recommmend all schools to visit this special place!!!
  • I love these guys so much - they really are the real deal - such a great team of dedicated conservationists who are working really hard to save imperiled wildlife like cheetahs. We showed up without an appointment and they gave us a personal tour and took us round to see animals like African wild dogs and cheetahs in a safari vehicle. They are also helping the endangered ground hornbill. It was an awesome visit!! They are the best!! Keep up the good work HESC - wildlife is counting on great people like you. Thank you so much!
