absolutely BRILLIANT experience. Truly loved it. Small group and very informative. Had the luck of booking a hotel right next door to the sanctuary too!!!!

Paul OConnor

We really enjoyed the experiance and the guides where great in giving us loads of info and speaking clearly for everyone to understand. Also you could see the animals where well looked after and the guides also respected the animals. We would def recommend this experience and sanctuary to friends and visitors.


Midway between the Drakensberg escarpment and the Kruger National Park is where you’ll find Hazyview.
