    We pride ourselves in being able to offer the above safari packages all in house. 

    Therefore there are no hidden costs whatsoever, nor commissions paid to any other operators. 

    The simple answer is no. If compared our safari packages offer more activities, and all safaris are conducted in authentic safari open game drive vehicles. 

    In many instances, our safari packages are cheaper and this is primarily due to the fact that we do not pay commissions to third parties. 

    Generally, the drier months are better, from May to the end of October. This is primarily due to there being less water which ensures that the game will be more prone to be at watering holes. 

    During the drier months, the vegetation is also thinner which effectively helps one with better sightings. KwaZulu Natal in particular is a popular area to enjoy multiple Day Safaris as well as Overnight Safari Packages due to its sub-tropical climate. 

    This province is also home to the magnificent Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park which happens to be the largest game reserve and is also home to the African Big 5.

    This would depend entirely if you are opting for a Safari on a Private Reserve or in a Public Reserve as well as the area that you would like to visit. 

    Kruger National Park is the largest public reserve and due to its popularity thus offers its day safaris at a higher price per person. This park also has numerous private reserves within the park and bordering it. These private reserves do on occasion offer day safaris to the public however this is not the norm as one would have to purchase an overnight all-inclusive package that would include safaris. 

    Other provinces such as KwaZulu Natal have also fast become ever popular with private reserves these too over overnight packages at premium prices.

    This depends on what it is that you would like to see and experience. There are numerous game reserves in South Africa. One will also have to decide if you would like to enjoy a Private reserve, public reserve, self-drive or organized safari. 

    Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve due to its size, and wildlife population makes for an incredible Safari be it self-drive or organized safari. 

    For some Organized Big 5 Safari Options click here.

    Enjoying a Safari while in South Africa is firstly easy to book and enjoy. With good infrastructure, one may easily enjoy multiple safaris to multiple provinces in South Africa. 

    The provinces to enjoy these safaris would be KwaZulu Natal, with truly amazing road networks and airports. Limpopo is in close proximity to Johannesberg and lastly Cape Town with its reserves and Winelands. 

    For safari first-timers, South Africa is truly an easy cheap, and convenient way to enjoy a fantastic Safari. 

    For years it has always been easy to say, Kruger National Park, why due to its size primarily, history, and of course some amazing marketing. 

    KwaZulu Natal has without a doubt fast become a top contender, this being due to the number of private reserves, variety of wildlife species, and also the amazing array of activities that one may enjoy in a smaller area. 

    The No 1 area within KwaZulu Natal for instance has to be the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park triangle. Home to the Big 5, Cheetah, Wild Dogs, Hippos, Whales, Turtles and so much more, and this in a mere 54km radius. 

    If you are a lover of the outdoors, wildlife, people, and exploring something amazing then the answer is absolutely yes. South Africa has so much to offer and is a magnificent destination to enjoy a wide variety of safari packages. 

    This would entirely depend on the type of safari package that you are looking for when visiting South Africa. Private game reserves are known for their exclusivity and grandeur however this comes with a cost. Heritage Tours & Safaris offers 4-star safari packages into South Africa, (KwaZulu Natal). These packages offer absolute value for money excursions and safaris. 


    Year-round visits to this park always guarantee you some incredible sightings. We depart into this park on a daily basis besides Christmas and we can truly say that no times are better than others. 

    If one takes into account weather, fauna, and flora the winter months are dryer and thus are less lush, which contributes to easier sightings. (Winter months are, June to the end of August). 

    Parturition takes place during August and September and this is truly an amazing time of the year to visit the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park. 

    Numerous reasons contribute to this park being so well known. 

    • In the early 60s when less than 100 Rhinoceros walked the planet, it was the Safe the Rhino campaign that was established in the Hluhluwe Game Reserve that single-handedly saved the rhinos from extinction. 
    • Techniques may be seen at the Centenary Center in the Imfolozi side of the Hluhluwe Game Reserve.
    • This has contributed to the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve having the largest population of rhinos in the world.
    • King Shaka (Zulu King) made use of the lower Imfolozi Game Reserve as his personal hunting grounds in the 1800s

    This would vary between a safari in a private reserve versus a public reserve. 

    Private reserves may have their lions tagged and may therefore track them. Also in private reserves safari jeeps do sometimes have trackers and rangers which contributes to the success of tracking lions. Private reserves also allow trackers and rangers to traverse into the bush. 

    Public reserves on most occasions only a ranger will be present on safari without a tracker. This means that the ranger has more responsibilities and has to be more in tune with the area in which he or she is tracking a lion. 

    Rangers / Guides use numerous techniques in finding Lions, most often areas of water source, animal movements, vantage points, and of course being in the reserve for numerous years offers a better understanding of where and when a Lion may be encountered. 

    One of our best Rangers ironically always looked for Lion's Tail flicking in the distance.

    Top Destinations:

    KwaZulu Natal, what makes this province ideal for a Safari Package? Firstly the weather remains ideal year-round with its subtropical climate. February remains the warmest month and may just be a bit warm. Infrastructure within the province makes for easy access, and continued upgrades to the existing roads, as well as national roads, are quite impressive.

    KwaZulu Natal has added a new International Airport (King Shaka) on the outskirts of Durban on the North Coast road (N2) further assisting in easy access to Bush country in the North.

    KwaZulu Natal, Zululand is situated North of Durban approximately 200 km north. The area is synonymous with its Bush and Beach destinations, world heritage sites, and much more. Zululand offers magical discoveries, culture, and an abundance of wildlife. A true Safari destination awaits.

    Cape Town is a metropolitan city that offers some amazing outings and safari opportunities. From the Atlantic Ocean to Table Mountain to vineyards galore there is truly something for all.

    For an amazing South African Experience tour or safari, we would advise a visit to these two provinces. One will undoubtedly get to experience the very best that South Africa has to offer. All Packages are conducted in Malaria Free Areas.

    All Game Viewing is conducted in Open Game Drive Vehicles. The majority of the safari lodges are based in St Lucia for all KwaZulu Natal Safari Packages. This has to be some of the very best and most incredible Southern Africa Safari Packages Available.
