        iSimangaliso Wetland Park
        Stop: 6 hours
        South Africa's very first world heritage site. The Park was proclaimed as a world heritage site in 1999 and has since become one of the top destinations while in KwaZulu Natal. This tour includes a multitude of sightings, wildlife, and snorkeling in a Protected bay should the conditions be favorable. It's a day of game viewing, hides, loop roads and snorkeling. Not to mention a lovely picnic at Cape Vidal.

        Siyabonga was a great tour guide
        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

        Best birthday experience with the amazing wild life
        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.

        It's definitely worth getting up early!
        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. Absolutely worth it!

        Best anniversary ❤️
        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.

        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!

        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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      We had a wonderful day with Arno as our guide at iSmangaliso Wetland Park. Arno was knowledgeable about the ecosystem, animals and especially the birds - he had a "bird bible" and binoculars and was patient so that even the 6 year old could see. We saw birds, hippos, and the world's largest dung beetle flew into our vehicle and knocked itGreatself out. We capped the day with a brief snorkeling stint - again with Arno's patience, knowledge and care making for a safe and fun experience. Definitely 5 stars!

      Lindoh was a fantastic guide with all the knowledge about the animals as well as the birds. We have been on alot of Safari's but we have learned so much on our Game drive with Lindoh. We had a fantastic time and will recommend it to anyone that wants to learn more about the animals and birds.

      We booked the three days package safari tours with the heritage company in combination with 2 nights at the Ludiko lodge in St.Lucia. This was a great experience and we really enjoyed all the nice safari trips together with the braai and lunch. Especially Arno who was our tour guide on the final day. At first we thought we were going to surf, based on his appearance and not wearing shoes, but luckily we drove to the safari park.

      He showed us some nice parts of the park and told us a lot about the animals and the tracks you could see (fe the drag track of an elephant). He also took us to a (abandoned) secret tower (after a short walk through the jungle) to spot some wales at the beach of Cape Vidal, which was also amazing. We also had a nice lunch together with a glass of wine and he was really interested in us and what we wanted to see in the park.

      If we would go again we would certainly ask for him as a tour guide and stay at his wife’s guesthouse (iGwalagwala). And we were also very grateful that he brought us back to Durban!

      Me and my family (2 adults, 2 kids of 7 and 8 yrs) had a great day (from 8:00 to ~15:15). Nice combination of safari and beach / snorkeling / lunch with a small group (8 persons).
      The park is very close to St Lucia, so there isn't a lot of time wasted by travelling to/from the park.
      Highly recommended
