Facilities and Services

Heia is one of those places where you get way more than you expect, and in today’s world, thats pretty cool. From the warm welcome from the hosts, the classic rondavels where we stayed, beautiful scenery, sunsets, very tame animals and not forgetting the great trails on the property, this is a must ride location only 30 minutes form Sandton. 30 MINUTES PEOPLE. Its well worth the short drive. Load up the kids and do a weekend away that wont cost you a zillion Rand in fuel or accommodation.
