        Just beautiful
        This tour is definitely worthwhile in addition to the Hluhluwe tour. Wonderful grasslands and with Theo, a very competent guide. We particularly enjoyed his detailed comments on the culture, language and community life.

        Great full day in iSimangaliso
        We went out to iSimangaliso for the day. Theo, our guide, was very friendly and shared great knowledge. Having worked in the bush for many years myself, I was very pleased to learn new things from Theo. We were extremely lucky to have a gorgeous sighting of a male leopard - that was truly memorable, especially in this park. The food prepared for breakfast and lunch was very pleasant and I appreciated that they had a great vegetarian option. I would definitely recommend the full day tour with Heritage!

        Bush and Boat Safari
        We had an amazing experience with the bush and boat safari. Both guides were very friendly and went out of their way to make the experience memorable and ensure we saw as many animals as possible. Would recommend for first time visitors to the area. Definitely made our trip to the area worry free. ✨️

        10/10 Safari
        The reserve was more beautiful than Kruger with its rolling valley’s and many rivers. Our guide Siyabonga was knowledgeable of the area and knew where to go to find the big 5. He was also a great cook and we were treated to breakfast and lunch. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!

        With passion
        We had a wonderful day in Isimangaliso. This place is beautiful and our guide Arno was incredible. He knew a lot of interesting facts about all the animals we saw and was listening to all our wishes (stopping at a specific place, swimming, …). We get along with each other a lot so that became a really nice friendly day.

        Great day in the park
        We had a wonderful time touring the park with our wonderful guide (I think her name was Mindy). She was very experienced and had a great eye for spotting animals in the trees. She also told us about some trees and many birds. Would recommend.

        An Excellent Day out with Great Guide
        We have just returned from a day safari in Hluhluwe/iMfolozi National Park with our excellent guide Siya. Siya was punctual, friendly and wecoming. He knew a lot about the birds and mamals we saw and prepared a wonderful breakfast and delicious barbecued steak lunch. We highly recommend him as a professional guide.

        Wonderful day tour for a cruise when in Richards Bay.
        We had a lovely day at Imfolozi Park combined with Wetland Hippo boat safari. Started at Richards Bay (Azamara Pursuit cruise ship at 8.30 and 1 hour later we were in the park). Thanks Heritage Tours for presenting us a wonderful day. We enjoyed the beautiful park and all friendly people we have seen. The many yellow textor wever birds at the hippos wetland are so beautiful. Memories forever. Hope to see you again one day. All agreed items and prices were correctly handled.

        Superb day out.
        A superb day out. A long day but we'll worth it. Early start requires a light jacket while travelling to the game reserve but after that it's suncream. The day was brilliantly hosted by our guide who went all out to find every possible type of game as well as being extremely informative. The breakfast was just right and the braai lunch cooked to perfection. Coming from the UK I can't rate this highly enough.

        Once in a lifetime!! Excellent!! Outstanding service
        One of the best experiences ever!! We chose the sunset safari with the amazing Yamkela as our guide, heritage day tours and safaris have set the bar on game drives extremely high. Yamkela our guide was very informative about the local wildlife he was so patient in his tour and made every experience filled with fun. The highlight was a young male elephant out in the open and tried to scare us off with his might but Yamkela handled it all to well! Outstanding service I would chose heritage day tours and safaris always. Thanks Yamkela for a once in a lifetime experience!!!

      we were taken out by Siyabonga who was a great guide. he picked us up at 5am from our place, even though he lives 7km away and had to get up at 3am to get everything ready for us .
      he was super knowledgeable and gave us loads of good info on the animals. he made a great braai and catered to our individual diets.
      couldn’t recommend enough

      The most beautiful birthday with amazing views and awesome animals. The heritage team was Helen, Nele, and Arno was the best. So much we learnt in this lovely experience.

      Helen helped alot with my bookings she made sure I was picked up from my hotel and also answered every question I had along my booking.

      Arno has a really good eye and make sure we seen as much as we could...he really tried hard enough to get us to see the cheetah but unfortunately the cat family did not want to be seen on this day. He taken us to the hide outs and the braai was perfect.He was also the best driver. He explains really well and also is a very friendly person. He also make sure everything was seen to time to time. Really cool to have a great tour guide with the best experience of the wild.

      Nele was full of knowledge and was a lovely experience he made us feel safe in the water with deadly wild animals.

      To heritage tours thank you for making my birthday so special with a beautiful cake and wine it was a cherry on the top.

      Really appreciate it and hope to be back soon.

      Lindoh, our guide, led us through the park very competently, with lots of information and plenty of time to observe the animals. The braii for lunch was fantastic.

      Yam was absolutely the best tour guide, he was super informative, really friendly, funny and easy going. He also went the extra mile to make our anniversary special by bringing a cake along which made our day extra special. Would highly recommend him as a tour guide. I loved the experience as well. The animals were amazing. We got to see giraffe, Buffalo, zebra , lots of buck, warthog, birds, elephants and rhinos, Yam our tour guide knew exactly where to go. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any lions but we understood that the game reserve is 96 000 hectares so it's a chance of luck. Overall no regrets and I most definitely enjoyed choosing this place to spend our anniversary here.
