We saw 4 of the big five (lions, elephants, rhinos and buffalo's), and even if the weather was against us, we enjoyed our full day safari a lot! Our guide Ngcebo was kind, funny and he was full of knowledge: he helped us to understand the animals' living habits, to identify all the beautiful birds we saw... And both breakfast and lunch were very good. Everything was perfect!

We visited St Lucia with family from the UK in October 14 and went on a safari with Heritage.. had such an awesome time we came back in June 15 with our friends visiting Poland.. Our first Safari was so good and our guide Ric was so knowledgeable, friendly and got us close to so many animals we just had to request him again in October.. He didn't disappoint! Ric.. you're awesome and we appreciate you taking us out again and getting us close to so many animals and giving us many amazing photo ops!! We saw 4 of the big 5 in just a half day safari.. We loved it and so did our friends!! We'll be visiting again soon and hope we get you again Ric!
Amazing safari day. We have seen a lot of animals, it was cheeta day. At lunch Brian made us a wonderful bbq. Brian is a great driver, guide, ranger and cook. Only one word for it awesome. We can recommend it to everyone. Thank you Brian. Kim & Koen Belgim
After debating whether to visit Hluhluwe iMfolozi park in our own vehicle, we decided to take a guided tour. We would definitely recommend for first timers and those with limited wildlife knowledge/ID skills. David was a brilliant guide, very knowledgeable and a great braai chef! All in all a fantastic day.
We had a great time with our trip and our guide David. We got picked up at our hotel at 5 am and drove for about an hour until we reached the entrance, which turned out to be the perfect timing for sunrise - we reached the park exactly when animal sightings were physically possible! During the drive we spotted a wide varieties of different animals - including elephants, white rhinos, giraffes - many we saw closer and more frequently than we thought we would. Also David gave us a lot of background information on all the animals. We enjoyed the experience and heartily recommend it.
Just returned from this day safari. Our guide/driver/chef David was very patient, caring, helpful and informative. We saw many animals including rhino, elephants, giraffes, wildebeest, impala, buffalo, warthogs and vervet monkeys too! It's a scenic park. I highly recommend this day trip. But dress warmly!
