Brilliant Zululand Safari. We started with a sunset game drive seeing Rhino, Buffalo, Hippo, Zebra, and more plus an evening drink overlooking Lake St. Lucia. The next day was an early morning game drive to Hluhluwe, saw lots of game, elephants, baboons, warthogs, giraffes, and lots of Antelope, and caught a glimpse of a Cheetah family. Our guide Theo was really excellent and gave us loads of commentary and facts as well as stopping to view smaller animals such as Chameleons and Terrapins. 3rd day was back to iSimangaliso where we again saw loads of game including Elephant families. We did also snorkel at Cape Vidal but the weather was poor, unfortunately. Day 4 was the Cheetah rehab center and a real Zulu village where we were joined by Mpume who explained all about Zulu culture. Accommodation was at Heritage House which was also superb and Thea was so helpful when we had a family issue. I really recommend using Heritage Safaris.

I can highly recommend Heritage Tours and Safaris. I booked with them 5 years ago and this time again. They are very reliable and the service they provide during the day tours with picnic lunch or a braai is really fantastic. We had an absolutely fabulous time and saw the Big 5 within 24 hours. I will definitely book with them again. The price for the packages are very reasonable.
