Supper Cool, Raving Customers.. Thank You...

Absolutely awesome day. Four of us went, our driver/guide (Lindo) was brilliant taught us so much, we spent a wonderful day in the park of Imfolozi and would go again tomorrow.

A light breakfast was perfect after such an early start but was worth every minute. Great Braai for lunch too. Can’t explain the magical feeling of this park and the landscape is hard to even explain as it’s not what we expected, the tour itself was lovely,

the park isn’t too busy even two days before Christmas. Seeing lions well unforgettable and we didn’t think we would be that lucky, 4 out of the big five seen on our second day in St Lucia, can’t complain. The brilliant company would recommend in a heartbeat. Date of experience: December 2019

What an awesome experience!!! We saw lions, a cheetah, elephants, buffalo, and rhino! Senzo was outstanding!

He clearly knows the bush very very well and spotted a cheetah and got us to it for a reasonably close up viewing. Such passion for wildlife so freely shared to give us the most memorable experience

Date of experience: December 2019

I had a wonderful time at iSimangaliso. Senzo was our tour guide and he was incredibly good at his job. 5 stars! Date of experience: December 2019

We spent 4 days on Safari with heritage tours and everything was so well organized from the online booking in Australia, the transfers from Durban. we were taken to the office and Bev went over our itinerary with us and then we went to our Lodge.


We did 4-day trips and one night trip with them where we saw so many animals including Elephants, rhinos, giraffe, zebras, warthogs, hippos, and many more. The guides were excellent and we were lucky enough to have Lindor on one occasion and Senso twice. with their abundant knowledge and very sharp eyes to spot numerous birds and insects also.

Each time our guide spotted an animal they positioned the vehicle to the best viewing and then explained all about that particular animal we came away with such a better understanding of South Africa. I am so glad we did those tours  Date of experience: November 2019

Testimonial

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My girlfriend and I scheduled our 2-night Safari with Heritage Tours and Safaris back in March and were so excited about our upcoming adventure. Little did we know, however, we would receive much more than what was expected.

Not only were we shown all of Africa’s amazing flora and fauna, but we got to experience traditional Zulu culture and food as well. This might seem customary as it is detailed in the tour package provided by the Heritage Tours company, however, our tour guide added a genuine and earnest approach to the whole ordeal.

Senzo, a tour guide for Heritage, was more than we could have hoped for. His eager attitude towards every aspect of the tour let us know we were in the best of hands. He was more than happy to appease those in the tour group who only cared to see the big five animals while also directing our attention to native African flowers along the way. Throughout the entire tour, his captivating positivity never wavered. We will certainly be booking through Heritage WHEN we return to South Africa and will most definitely be asking for Senzo again.

Once in a lifetime opportunity Date of experience: December 2019

“Heritage Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 13 November We had an amazing 4 days with Heritage Tours. We were very impressed with the knowledge of all the staff we met. Especially , Vusi, who did some very long driving for us, David who took us on a wonderful tour of Hluhluwe and pointed out so many animals that we would have missed if we had driven ourselves.

Daniel D

If you are looking for some awesome, knowledgeable people to work with, these are the guys I highly recommend. Their friendliness and result-driven approach is what I love about them.

Spent 5 fantastic days exploring the wildlife of SA with these guys. 

Went on numerous tours, including an incredible night safari (not to be missed!) 
- And saw 4 of the big 5! 

The guides are friendly and knowledgeable, being on hand to answer all our random questions in an engaging way. Only thing missing was the Leopard! 

Couldn’t recommend more highly.
