Back in 1999 Quentin & Mandy Muir traveled to St Lucia on vacation, on the first day of arriving in the area it was decided to move to this magnificent part of South Africa. The beauty, wildlife and Ocean had made its mark.The couple entered into a partnership and purchased a lodge in the center of St Lucia the first world heritage site within the borders of South Africa.
Heritage Tours & Safaris ultimately prevailed over the lodge and since has grown in leaps and bounds. It has always been more than just a business it’s a passion.
Kwa-Zulu Natal is home to Quentin & Mandy. We appreciate and love the beauty that surrounds us, stunning wildlife, Hippo’s roaming the streets at night and Bush Babies calls from outside our windows. The kind and friendly Zulu people have always warmed our hearts.
As lodge owners in a world heritage site, we realised that our clients where neither experiencing nor witnessing this great splendour and the temptation was just too great. The concept and birth of Heritage Tours & Safaris was realised and in 2003 when we were awarded a concession to offer Turtle tours along the coast line. From early days Heritage Tours & Safaris only offered high standards of service, extremely well qualified game rangers with passion for what it is that they offer. The company has remained a family run hands on Safari operation.
Heritage Tours & Safaris has seen many changes since those early days—what was once a true mom-and-pop operation has expanded to include both Bush Safaris, Ocean Excursions and Estuarine Boat Safaris. However Heritage Tours & Safaris remains a family affair specializing in luxury East Southern Africa safaris, with an emphasis on making our guests feel like family.
Heritage Tours & Safaris is not just another Safari company but rather an extension of a family.
The Muir Family
Quentin Muir a dedicated father of two girls loves sharing his experiences with his two girls. His driving force has contributed to Heritage Tours & Safaris becoming a key player in the tourism sector. Quentin is dedicated to product development and in so doing today Heritage Tours & Safaris offers the largest safari portfolio in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Mandy Muir with her tremendous personal warmth and love for the bush it is no wonder that no one client leaves not as a friend. Her contribution to personal service and caring has been inestimable; through her eyes you will experience Africa.
