What people say about us
We did a 3-night package which included meals, accommodation, entrance fees, an afternoon game drive, a full day safari, a safari and snorkeling at Cape Vidal and a boat cruise!
We stayed at the wonderful @Heritage House, which was comfortable and luxurious, and because it only has 4-5 rooms, you are well cared for by the lovely manageress, Thea. Breakfasts were really enjoyable!
A big thank you to Bev from Heritage Tours who assisted with our booking (which included communication lasting over a year due to covid). We had to reschedule a few times and we were always accommodated with ease. Thank you! The package was also put together very thoughtfully and we were well guided to ensure a pleasant experience. It was nice not to have to do any of the planning or thinking!
We are also very thankful to our amazing guide, JABU, who was with us for all 3 days and offered a fantastic experience. His knowledge was exceptional, especially regarding the birdlife - he taught us so much. He is also a great braai master!
I highly recommend this package to anyone wanting to experience the wonders of St.Lucia and surrounds. You will not regret it!!
An incredible and unbelievable experience! I did the 7-night Safari package and my guide was Jonathan Webster. Very knowledgeable and makes the whole experience amazing. Furthermore, for the Isimangliso Safari, I did this with Senzo and I also did a Zulu cultural tour with Xolani.
Both Senzo and Xolani made the experience great and explained a lot. The package offered by Heritage Tours is amazing and you really get to explore a large part of Northern KwaZulu Natal with its diverse wildlife and plant species, as compared to being stuck in one lodge. I will definitely do this again and they have amazing accommodation at heritage house with a wonderful breakfast!! This is definitely value for money!!!
My 85-year-old mother and 3 sisters had an amazing experience. Jason was a fabulous guide. His knowledge of the animals, the landscape was impeccable. We even were able to see the Big 5. We were pampered at the guest house and the accommodations were wonderful. Our location was close to all the wonderful restaurants and hippos. Thank you for such a wonderful safari!
We booked a 2-night safari which included a river safari to see hippos and crocs, which we did. The following day we had a day safari, a Night Safari and on the last day, we had a safari on Cape Vidal and the wetlands with snorkelling also. Both days included breakfast and lunch which was very good on both occasions.
We were incredibly lucky to have Jon, Jason and Sibo as our guides for the trips. They were all very good at finding animals that a layman would have found impossible to see in the bush. Jon in particular had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the animal’s, birds and plants. We learnt so much on all of the trips which made it so much better.
There were 4-6 people in each jeep, 4 for us most of the time so it was quite intimate and the safaris didn’t feel at all touristy. If there was a sighting of something interesting there was a maximum of us and another jeep present.
We definitely were not expecting the quality of safari we got for the money we paid and felt it was exceptional value! Highly recommended and thanks guys for the amazing trip.
