    This was booked for us through our lodge and we really enjoyed it. We were picked up in a large open air vehicle and taken to the dock where we boarded a flat bottom boat and motored out into the sanctuary. The driver was so informative about the area with tons of background about the park! We only saw one crock but we saw tons of hippos! I highly recommend this tour!!

    Absolutely fantastic!
    Our guide Sakhile was brilliant. He has an extensive knowledge about the area and so much passion.
    It was a superb day out.
    Snorkeling was beautiful, again our guide had so much knowledge and really went the extra mile to show us as much as possible under water.
    Will definitely recommend Safari and Surf as an full day outing in St Lucia.
    Thank you to all of you!

    The weather was not really inviting but my guide Yamkela certainly was. Wrapped up snuggly in blankets and rain ponchos we set out to explore the Eastern Shores. Hats off to Yamkela for very skillful driving, navigating the wet muddy roads. The buffalo were out enjoying the cooler weather and we had some great up close sightings. Add in some magnificent kudu, bush buck, shy red duiker, zebra and hippos and it made for a very enjoyable outing. We kept on looking for that elusive leopard right up to the gate exit but as you know, cat's don't like water. Simply another reason to go out on another trip as soon as possible. Thanks Yamkela, Mandy and Heritage Tours. Highly recommended. Don't let the weather put you off.

    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.

    I booked a trip to iMfolozi Hluhluwe through Heritage tours and the trip came to an abrupt end due to lockdown. They were happy to accommodate any refunds and adjustments to re-planning a trip post lockdown. they gave great advice on where to stay, where to go and what to see.

    Prompt response from the team - readily available to answer all your questions on their WhatsApp line. Was worried about the weather and they had already checked it when I enquired.

    Fantastic guide - Sakhile was very informative, patient, friendly and has a great sense of humour.

    Walk was under 2 hours, out of choice because of time constraints. Wear walking shoes (sneakers) and long pants because you're walking through the bush and mud at some point. Bring a hat and water. Be prepared to get some good walking exercise.

    We only spotted Impala, birds and warthogs (but prints on the sand showed that some other animals had come through) but we learnt a lot about the area and some of the trees. We also stopped at Bhangazi Horse safaris where we had a chance to learn a little about horses (not part of the walk but the owners are very friendly).

    If it wasn't for our time constraints, we would definitely have been there longer. Overall wonderful service and a wonderful experience!

    I went on a two day tour with Zulu Safaris. Day One started with an early pickup by Sotiri who took me on an ever-changing drive through rural Zululand to St Lucia, a look around the markets and then a relaxing boat ride to see loads of hippos in the estuary.

    From there it was on to Hluhluwe. Even though it was baking hot and we were expecting most animals to be resting in the shade, out of sight, we saw loads from the start. Elephant, rhinos, giraffes, zebras. Every time we arrived somewhere, Sotiri was greeted like an old friend by staff and rangers. He's obviously well known and respected in the industry.

    Accommodation was in a permanent tent the size of a cottage, with monkeys, impala, warthogs and nyala wandering through camp.

    We did a sunset guided tour in an open vehicle with a terrific local guide and went spotlighting (more elephants and rhinos), then shared stories over a tipple on the deck with a fire crackling while a friendly bush pig paid a visit.

    The beds in my tent were super comfortable with crisp fresh linen and fluffy towels. We had an early breakfast and were off through the game reserve again not long after dawn. We spotted plenty more of Africa's finest and had a memorable encounter with a cranky old water buffalo and his mate, who planted themselves in the middle of the road with a sheer drop on one side. It was a good waiting game.

    Sotiri knew his stuff, whether it was the history of the area on the drive, politics, culture, the structure of Zulu houses, details and background about all the animals. Great company and good fun.

    We finished up with a visit to the Cheetah rehabilitation project where we were warmly greeted and given a personal tour to meet the cats.

    I also did the Day Tour to Durban with Sotiri a couple of days prior and it was great with the right mix of history (Ghandi's house, the Apartheid Museum), sightseeing (beaches), shopping (markets) etc. The golf cart ride around Botannic Gardens was my favourite part of the day.

    And most importantly.... Sotiri knows where to find the good coffee. :) :)

    We saw lots of Hippo pods including young ones. We also saw some crocodiles and one bull shark. Lots of birds to view. The trip lasted 2.5 hours and the boat captain was very professional. Sometimes the passengers would shout out their findings and the captain would steer the boat to accommodate us. The boat was full - top and bottom. We all had a great time. Plenty of pictures to post and share a bit later.

    If you want to have a fun evening on the water, sign up for this cruise.

    My son and I did a bird walk in St Lucia and the snorkeling at Cape Vidal through Safari and Surf as well as kayaking and snorkeling in Kosi Bay Elise in the office was incredibly helpful in organising everything for us at St Lucia and Kosi Bay as we had very limited time. The guides at both locations were incredible and the activities were everything we hoped for and more. I would highly recommend Safari and Surf.

    My daughter and I went on the two-day Zululand tour organised and guided by Emile and we had a wonderful time. Besides the fact that everything was extremely well organised, we saw a lot of birds. Emile just knew where to take us and who to arrange as additional guides to maximise our birding experience. He arranged for Junior to assist in Mtunzini and Ivor in Monyoni who both did an excellent job. The accommodation and food were great and even a night drive was included which gave us 3 different owls.

    What a beautiful tour this was. Isimangaliso Wetland & Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve. Most enjoyable 3 Day Tour From Durban. I can definitely recommend this tour.

    I went to Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park with a group of friends and it was great decision to do it! Amazing experience, it was something totally new for us. We had a great guide Zamani, he told us a lot about culture and history and showed us beautiful places. Before the trip we hesitated, but it was totally worth it!
