    I love Rietvlei Nature Reserve for its array of birding and wildlife it is a good 45 minute drive but that is fine bathrooms need work

    My sister treated me to a night stay and a full day spa the next day.
    We arrived mid afternoon, and we were allocated the cottage, which is absolutely beautiful, stunning surroundings, and so peaceful.
    We went for an early evening walk, and as we reached the other house on the property, a giraffe ran out in front of us, what an amazing experience!
    The Spa day on Saturday morning started with a wonderful breakfast, and introduction by the lovely owner.
    The treatments were so relaxing.
    We had lunch, again, great food, in wonderful surroundings, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
    More treatments after lunch, and a ‘chocolate plate’ before we left, but none of us wanted to leave!
    Thank you all, so much, for making our stay a truly memorable one. I will be back on my next visit to South Africa!

    I spent a fantastic day at Pilanesberg with Heart Beats of Africa and was utterly captivated by the knowledge and passion safari guide Hendre, had for the animals we came across when on safari. After my Pilanesberg trip I was very keen to do another safari with Hendre and called him to expressed my desire to do a weekend safari at Kruger National Park, he planned and created a tailor-made safari that met all my requests.

    We camped at Kruger and boy does Hendre know how to camp! He supplied every piece of equipment necessary to make the experience as luxury as possible, and as an Englishman that hadn’t experienced a South Africa braai before, I was blown away by the standard of cooking that was delivered over a campfire. I requested to try some traditional South Africa meals, and that’s exactly what I received, I enjoyed meals such as ostrich steak and chicken potjie.

    During our three-day trip to Kruger we were lucky enough to see the big 5, I had expressed my desire to Hendre to see the big cats at Kruger, and experienced multiple extremely close lion sightings. With any safari, there is an element of luck involved in terms of the animal’s sightings, however Hendre’s extensive knowledge of the park and regular communications with other safari guides within the park, enabled us to track down the animals I most wanted to see.

    When I’m next in south Africa I know exactly who I will be contacting for a safari and I’m already looking forward to it! For holiday makers, volunteers or wildlife photographers interested in a South Africa safari, contact Heart Beats of Africa, you won’t regret it!
