Last December we spent a few days at Heia Safari Ranch in Muldersdrift. Their resident giraffe is beautiful and quite confidently wanders around the Ranch, seemingly oblivious to the admiring glances of the guests.
My granddaughters got really close to him and this made me extremely nervous. Thankfully, he ignored them completely and continued to nibble away at the leaves on the trees.
When my family came from England for a visit, we stayed at Heia Safari Ranch in Muldersdrift. Muldersdrift is a wonderful area for weddings and tourism and Heia Safari is the creation of a amazing space in a beautiful place.
An African Welcome
Zebra, giraffe, peacock, buck and even a zonkey (cross between a zebra and a donkey), mingle freely with the guests which was a great introduction to Africa for our visitor from New Zealand.
The Resident Zonkey
My granddaughters were particularly impressed by the giraffe, who passively nibbled away at the top leaves of the trees, blissfully unperturbed by their presence.
He’s Really Tall!
Getting a good shot of the peacock was a real exercise in patience but eventually, he showed off his glorious colours.
The Splendid Peacock
The zebra like to make their way to the swimming pool for a drink. Swimmers have to vacate the pool when the zebras arrive as the safety of the animals is paramount. They cannot be disturbed as, should they be startled, they may slip and injure themselves.
