H.E.S.C (Half Day)
Introductory presentation, Open safari vehicles move between the various enclosures, view cheetah, wild dog, lions, black-footed cats, African wild cats, ground hornbills, sable antelope and the Vulture Restaurant. Marabou stork & Bateleur eagle also frequent the area.
Since its establishment in 1990 as the Hoedspruit Cheetah Project, HESC has played an important role in the conservation of specific endangered species, particularly cheetahs and rhinos.
A visit to HESC is not complete without one of our guided tours on an open safari vehicle. Available daily, the two-hour standard tour with a knowledgeable guide gives an overview of the conservation programmes being conducted and a close-up of the various species in our care. Seeing the cheetahs and rhinos is always a highlight. Equally popular is the Vulture Restaurant where the vultures descend in their hundreds when food is put out for them. Feeding of the birds takes place only during the Cheetah Focus Tour. On our standard tours you’ll also see our lions, leopard, various smaller cat species, sable antelope and ground hornbills. The tour is preceded by an informative video on HESC. While you wait for your tour to start, enjoy the cheetahs in the Island Camp in front of the deli.
