This was amazing and if you aren't an experienced safari visitor I would highly recommend doing a tour because on our first day we drove around for 6 hours and saw zebra, warthogs and dung beetles. That's it! It had been a drought so the animals were very hard to find. When we went with the guide it was totally... More

On a recent cruise to South Africa, we docked at Richard's Bay for two days. My partner and I, with friends, enjoyed two excellent shore excursions operated by Heritage Tours: on the first day, we visited the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and viewed the very entertaining hippos and other wildlife on a small comfortable boat commanded by a very knowledgeable ranger....

Heritage tours could not have been more helpful. We booked the whole safari package with them, including accommadation, trips to Hluhluwe/Imfolozi, iSimangaliso Wetlands, and river trip to meet the hippos. The knowledge of the guides, Johnathon (took us to the parks)and Shorna (to the hippos) was just incredible. We saw a huge variety of animals and birds, and experienced some... More

I took a two night safari trip with Heritage Tours in December, and it was a great experience. Our guide, Jono, was absolutely amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, prepared, patient and fun. We felt very lucky to have him as the guide and it was a great experience. Can't believe we saw so many animals in one full day!

Well done on the service of the staff at Heritage Tours from the office staff to guides. Went on a half day safari with Ncogobo as a tour guide who was very informative and knowledgeable about the game. Was a pleasure to have him as a tour guide.

I have traveled extensively across 5 continents and this was undoubtedly one of my favourite experiences. I started off with the sunset hippo and crocodile tour with Rick. While I was very excited to get so close to the hippos what really struck me was the large variety of birds and how incredibly knowledgeable Rick was on the bird life... More

No other words except FANTASTIC can describe the experience we had today. From our early departure it wasn't long til we found all but one of the Big Five. None of it would've been possible without our guide DAVID. There wasn't anything he could not tell us, he was very knowledgeable and he cared for us better than any B&B... More

Picked up at 5 am by a very chirpy David, he was very friendly and drove us to the reserve. He explained how the morning would pan out and get us plenty of time to take pictures and was very informative as to the animals themselves! Unfortunately the leopard and lions evaded us but plenty of other animals to admire... More

What a great day on safari at the Hluhluwe Game Reserve it was amazing, my expectations were well and truly met saw 3 of the big 5 unfortunately the leopard and lions were being very illusive but that's nature. The day package included breakfast and lunch which was very enjoyable and plentiful. A special mention to the guide who was... More

In the summer of 2016 we booked that two hour tour. There were only 15 people on the boat - great, because there was no "party" like we saw on the bigger boats of other companies! Jacques shared all his knowledge about the animals in a friendly and funny way. Important: He did NOT go too close to the animals,... More
