    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.

Our day was filled with sights of water buffaloes, kudu, waterbuck, rhino, hippos and an elephant through rainy weather. The significance of this was a 4 x 4 drive through the Grassland loop. Our tour guide Sandile was spectacular and we enjoyed the sightseeing and variety of birds such as eagles, herons and the African cuckoo.

We were tempted to cancel the trip due to bad weather, however it ended up being the best game experience we have been to in this part of the country.

We were picked up at our hotel early in the morning and drove into the iSimangaliso natural park in order to see the nature wake up in the morning. The guide Sandile was very helpful and we saw lats of animals; Buffalos, Zebras, Antilopes, Dungbeetles just to name a few. It was a great experience and we all had a "great time"!

We were in the safe and proficient hands of Xolani as our tour guide. What a brilliant fellow. His understanding of nature and how the animals in isimangaliso interact with their environment granted us an opportunity to see an elephant that had just ran down a tree. We even spotted a chameleon from a distance all thanks to his brilliant eye. Overall the tour was amazing, but I would suggest going on the sunset drive as that'll increase your chances of seeing larger predators.

We got fetched on time in the Morning and drove to the Park.
The guide‘s Name was Sandile, he was very friendly, informed, qualified and always made sure that we had a Good time.
At one Point during the Tour we were in the Middle of an elephant Family gathering, which was Great.
Heritage Tours also offer breakfast and a Braai in the park and the braai was awesome and well done by our Guide.
We can recommand Heritage tours and our Guide for everyone.

We were collected and dropped off from our accommodation in St Lucia by our game ranger John who imparted a wealth of knowledge. There were plenty of cool drinks on offer all day and we stopped of for morning refreshments of tea, coffee muffins and rusks at a viewing sight overlooking the iSimangaliso wetlands . The 4x4 Game Viewing and forest walk were amazing and after visit to Cape Vidal and a swim in the sea we set off for a picnic lunch of roast chicken salads and wine, truly a feast. Splendid day out, and worth every penny.
