Heia Safari-Hero Adventure Park – Muldersdrift

Heia Safari Ranch  is located near the Cradle of Humankind in the Muldersdrift area, just 30 minutes west of Johannesburg. This game farm is home to giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, blesbok, impala and springbok. Zebras and impala drink from the swimming pool where lunch is served, it is even possible to touch some of the impala while they take cover in the shade of the trees. Heia Safari is the home of the Hero Adventure Park, this exciting sports venue caters for mountain bikers, trail runners, open water swimmers and canoers.  The trail surface is made up of very loose fine stone that can be a bit tricky in the corners but overall is extremely well maintained. There are some fast exciting single track sections, floating bridges, berms and jumps that will keep you entertained between the game viewing.

The park has been built to entertain a vast range of cyclists with 6 trails ranging from 3 km-18.5 km that vary in difficulty. The children’s play ground will keep the little ones entertained while you get some time in the saddle. Don’t forget to give your bike a spray down before grabbing a cappuccino at the restaurant.

Oi!! Just ring your bell or whistle to get the animals off the single track.
