This was a 2 hour boat trip on the lower reaches of St Lucia lake, led by our very knowledgeable and friendly guide Jacques. The Shoreline boats take a maximum of 15 people, and sit low on the water, so you get excellent views of hippos, crocodiles and anything else which is around. We saw a fish eagle, goliath heron and African finfoot, amongst other birds. Guides know exactly where to find the hippos, and we learned about their lifestyle and habits. Shoreline guides are also extremely careful not to disturb the animals unnecessarily, and the boats manouevre quietly and gently around the animals (not all tour operators do!) We were recommended to go at 3pm as we would get good views of the animals, which we did, and also got the sunset.

Our guide Dennis was absolutely awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Its adds so much to an experience like this, when our guide is so well informed and competent. We will definitely be back. Thanks to Tarryn Lee at Heritage Tours for being so accommodation with moving our booking dates around whilst we all got over our flu. You guys are fantastic :)

I booked a boat trip and a night drive at iSimangaliso and a full day safari at Hluhluwe National Park with Heritage Tours.
I liked the boat trip, our guide knew a lot and was always stopping to give us a lot of details. He seemed to have fun working and so had we listing to him and enjoyed the boat trip.
The night safari was an experience I am happy to have done but I didn't like it too much. Our guide didn't seem very motivated, sometimes he wouldn't even illuminate the surroundings...
However the full day safari the next day was amazing. Our guide was super cool, we had a lot of fun. Also the breakfast and lunch were very nice and we could see all of the big 5 except for leopards.

All in one I would definitely book my next safari with Heritage Tours.

We booked the half day safari at Hluhluwe-imfolozi game park and the St. Lucia estuary boat tour as a package. We were picked up by our driver Mbeki at 5am and taken to the game park where we had an awesome game drives with plenty of animal sightings and breakfast in the bush. It was a pleasant experience and we enjoyed it very much. In the afternoon we did the boat trip to watch hippos and crocodiles at the St Lucia estuary. The guide Dennis was very knowledgeable and gave a very good insight in the animals. It's a great way to see a bit of everything if you've got limited time, like we did. We highly recommend the company and the guides.

Our tour guide Jacques took us on an amazing trip down the St Lucia river. We got up close with Hippos in their natural habitat and learned a lot about their habits in the wild. He was also very knowledgable on many other marine animals and birds. Overall a great experience.
