“3 day safari package.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

We had a great time in hluhluwe with driver/guide Theo we saw 4 out of the big 5 , and a lot of ather animals. He fixed a great BB lunch. The boat trip was nice and we saw hippo and crocs. The trip to ester shore and the beach with David was nice and we had the chance to swim in the ocean .
A the night safari with Patric we saw hyenas and hippos on land, it was windy so it was hard to find everything but it was a nice tour. The guides really tried to give us a lot of info about the animals and everything around. I can really recommend Heritage tours and safari to my friends.

“Nice ride on the water, but not as "action packed" as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable guide/skipper, spacious and well-maintained boat

Cons: The boat safari was supposed to be 2 hours, but we were returned to the dock after 1.5 hours

We did see some birds, crocodiles and hippos on the boat safari. I guess I had overly high expectations from the name "boat safari" and given the cost per person, I assumed there would be A TON of different animals to see. To my disappoint, it was just a nice boat ride but rather uneventful for animal watching.

I found Heritage Day Tours via TripAdvisor because of their high ratings, and booked directly though their website (although they asked me to pay at a storefront called "Shoreline Boat & Walking Safaris on the day of the trip - I guess they are affiliated somehow).

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Me and 3 friends went on this safari and it was an experience we shall all remember for the rest of our lives. We didn't see all of the big 5 but this really didn't matter as the animals, scenery and tour guide were all fantastic. I've genuinely never experienced anything like this before and it blew me away. Cannot recommend this enough! Thank you.

We had a package with safaris to the iMfolozi-hluhluwe NP, iSimangaliso Wetland park, etc. And everything was arranged for us perfectly. Pickups at the hotel always on time and the guides were great!

“Heritage tours -Awesome safaris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

The first week of our month in South Africa was fantastic! We went on a full day, two half days and a boat trip with Heritage tours and had an amazing time on all of them! The full day to Hluhluwe was awesome, seeing a whole range of animals in the reserve. Our guides were very informative and answered all of our questions, as well as cooking us a great braai!
We also managed to see the big five whilst we were in St lucia, so it was a great success! And definitely don't forget your camera!

Thanks again to Quentin and Mandy and all of the guides for giving us an unforgettable experience of a life time!
