My husband and I booked a safari with our friends through Heritage day tours. The staff were amazing. They had taken care of all the details so that we didn't have to worry about a thing! Everyone was very nice. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I was very comfortable during our entire trip and feel that I learned a lot. The parks we went to were also very beautiful. The night safari was my favorite!

Very, very many thanks to our guides Brian, Rick, Stacie ? and our operator, Mandy for a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience. Our guides were very knowledgeable and fun and just as excited as we were in spotting game. I can see that they are truly committed to their jobs and to game preservation.The night drive through Isimangaliso wetland is something not to be missed. We had a very exhilarating two day package with Heritage tours and at a very affordable price. Mandy, we love your steaks for our lunch ! Furthermore, we were picked up from our hotel in Durban and back to the airport for our trip home by our driver, Hlaka. I highly recommend Heritage Tours to anyone. You never know, we may be back ?

We traveled to South Africa from the United States on business and decided that we would like to end our trip with a two day safari. I learned of Heritage Tours and Safaris via internet searching and reading reviews on-line. After reading many positive experiences, and several e-mail questions to Mandy (the owner/operator of Heritage Tours) we decided to make our reservations. Thank goodness we did, because Heritage Tours helped to provide us with one of the most positive memorable experiences of our lives! Mandy took care of our travel to and from Durban, our lodging (Umlilo Lodge was great), and our complete Safari. The guides were super and did their best to find as many animals for us to see as possible. The food provided was also very good. Thanks for such a wonderful experience Heritage Tours!

In the beginning of January 2013 we had an amazing experience on the Hluhluwe Game Drive and the Hippo & Croc boat cruise.

After the excellent reviews I got from family (both local and UK) based on the two excursions, I had the opportunity to go and see for myself.

Brian was the perfect guide, living for his job and the outdoors being his passion. The breakfast spread in the park under the trees and the braai lunch in the park next to the river was great!

Trevor, thank you for the knowledge and friendly attitude you conducted the cruise with! You truly releate to any and all people :)

Thank you for a wonderful experience, you will be highly recommended to all!

It showed me one is never too old to learn new things.

Thank you also to Mandy, Quinton and Etienne.

See you again soon!

We booked and paid in advance for the trip. Bookings were made easily via email and our enquiry was handled timeously. Trevor was our guide aboard The Shoreline and proved to be really informative and interesting, sharing his up to date knowledge about the history and future of the estuary....and his wealth of information regarding the animals viz hippo, crocs and birdlife made for an entertaining tour!
