Well done on the service of the staff at Heritage Tours from the office staff to guides. Went on a half day safari with Ncogobo as a tour guide who was very informative and knowledgeable about the game. Was a pleasure to have him as a tour guide.

I have traveled extensively across 5 continents and this was undoubtedly one of my favourite experiences. I started off with the sunset hippo and crocodile tour with Rick. While I was very excited to get so close to the hippos what really struck me was the large variety of birds and how incredibly knowledgeable Rick was on the bird life... More

No other words except FANTASTIC can describe the experience we had today. From our early departure it wasn't long til we found all but one of the Big Five. None of it would've been possible without our guide DAVID. There wasn't anything he could not tell us, he was very knowledgeable and he cared for us better than any B&B... More

Picked up at 5 am by a very chirpy David, he was very friendly and drove us to the reserve. He explained how the morning would pan out and get us plenty of time to take pictures and was very informative as to the animals themselves! Unfortunately the leopard and lions evaded us but plenty of other animals to admire... More

What a great day on safari at the Hluhluwe Game Reserve it was amazing, my expectations were well and truly met saw 3 of the big 5 unfortunately the leopard and lions were being very illusive but that's nature. The day package included breakfast and lunch which was very enjoyable and plentiful. A special mention to the guide who was... More

In the summer of 2016 we booked that two hour tour. There were only 15 people on the boat - great, because there was no "party" like we saw on the bigger boats of other companies! Jacques shared all his knowledge about the animals in a friendly and funny way. Important: He did NOT go too close to the animals,... More

Went on the hippo and croc tour. Was a windy day so no crocs, but saw many hippos and learned so much about them and the whole area from our guide, Stacy. Thoroughly enjoyable and great pictures to take home!

The 2 hour boat trip passed by so quickly. Very enjoyable and informative. The reason I only gave 4 stars was I found the full day safari too long in almost 40c heat. After mid morning the animals were few as too hot for them too. Our guide Theo was most informative and friendly and gave us a lovely lunch.... More

We had a great two hour estuary cruise during our St. Lucia trip. Our guide Stacey was extremely knowledgeable and had a real way with words, we enjoyed her anecdotes about the resident hippos and other wildlife. It was a bit confusing however as this tour is marketed as a hippo and croc cruise, yet no mention (or sighting) of... More
