Safari Package Reviews



We booked a 7 night safari with Heritage. We had the most fantastic holiday and we could not have had a better experience. From our arrival at Heritage House where we were greeted with a really warm and friendly welcome from Thea to our day of departure Thea and the team at Heritage House went over and above in terms of the hospitality we were offered. The house is really comfortable and is a veritable home from home. Stacey the guide who accompanied us on our safaris was amazing, her knowledge about the bush and the animals therein was phenomenal. Stacey was totally committed to ensuring that we had an amazing experience and she most definitely succeeded. I would have no reservations whatsoever in recommending this excellent company we were looked after exceptionally well it truly was a holiday to remember.



My friend and I were visiting from Sydney and booked the 4 night package prior to joining a cruise. This package was incredible value. We stayed @HeritageHouse B & B for 4 nights where Thea made us most welcome. Also all the staff there. Their breakfasts are to die for as is their accomodation, so centrally located to the town. 
The trips each day were just wonderful, from a full day safari to Hluhluwe- Imfolozi National Park, the oldest in Africa, including a BBQ lunch. We saw 2 elephants, many zebra, giraffe, buffalo, kudo etc. Then on day two our guide Stacey too us to the wetlands and spent time at the beach at Point Vidal and then a night safari spotting hippos wandering from the lake, chameleon, kudu plus many more animals. You do need to dress warmly though. Zane took us to Emdoneni Cheetah Reserve and also the Zulu Cultural Centre. Another great day. 
Our final tour in the day we left was the hippo and croc tour which was great. I would thoroughly recommend Heritage Day Tours and Safari’s as it’s such good value.
