“Service with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2016

We spent three nights in La Lucia, staying in the company's 5-suite guest house called Heritage House, a hundred meters from the company offices. The facilities were comprehensive, almost up to 5-star standards. Suzette, manager of the lodge was service personified, making every effort to ensure that our stay was comfortable. The lodge served enormous breakfasts and dinners of excellent quality. Lunches (also enormous) were served by the guides at safe picnic spots within the games parks.

During our three days we took a boat trip on the estuary, a full day in Hluhluwe reserve, a full day wetlands tour and a night viewing. While we were unsuccessful in sighting lions and leopards we did see hippos, rhinos, elephants, warthog, kudu, waterbuck, nyala, reedbuck, impala, zebra, duiker, wildebeest and vervet monkeys (who made a thunderous noise on the lodge roof early in the morning).

The different guides for the different trips were pleasant and very knowledgeable. The open-sided vehicles used for viewing were comfortable,( although some of the roads were not).

All- in-all my wife and I can thoroughly recommend a visit. For visitors from hard currency countries the prices are a steal.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2016 via mobile

we had nice cruise in the late afternoon and were lucky to spot crocodyle, eagle, buffalo & a lot of hippos.

“Wonderful 3 days in St Lucia with Heritage Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2016

We decided to self drive from J'burg to St Lucia so cannot comment on the collection from the airport etc. However we can comment on the excellent experience we had from the moment we checked onto the office to the final farewell .

The ladies in the office were efficient and had everything prepared for our arrival. We were greeted with smiles and given our accommodation instructions and excursion details. We had been allocated into Heritage House, a property recently bought and renovated by the company, managed by a wonderful lady, Suzette; we were welcomed and shown around the property. Our room was super with everything we could need and a shower that we could of held a party in ! The food was delicious and in large portions. I am a fussy eater but Suzette accommodated my finikey tastes without issue. We had the three day package and the service was excellent throughout. Our guides were great, a big shout out to Jonathan, who was knowledgeable and passionate and taught us a lot whilst on our full day safari and Zane with his laid back relaxing manner and knowledge, If you are planning a trip to St Lucia please consider these guys, a very efficient and friendly company and great value for money.

“Good safari experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2016

We spent 2 days with Heritage Tours and did a wetland safari / hippo cruise and then a Hluhluwe safari. The tour guide was excellent and guided at our pace, showing us everything we wanted to see. The big animals were great, and we spent plenty of time watching the birdlife that we were interested in. We also got to snorkel at Cape Vidal. Back at the residence, the accommodation and food were good,
