Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, Hoedspruit Reviews

  • That was a very special and meaningful visit at the HESC. The ranger lady "Pepsi" gave us a very interesting tour through the center. That was fun and stuffed with interesting facts. I admire the work which these people do for endangered species. More tourists and residents should support the center and what they do.

  • This was a real experience for the whole family. The drive around the reserve and the interaction with the Cheetahs was amazing. The vulture feeding pit (although smelly) was an incredible sight and the opportunity to see the animals in their spacious enclosures was fantastic. I highly recommend a visit.

  • Donate to keep this great place. Cheetahs Rhinos Leopards need our help.

  • Awesome place, wonderful work. Thank you for accommodating us and helping the learners complete their Residential Project

  • Beautiful place. Up close view of endangered animals, including Sable and vultures. Very informative, great outing.
