Half Day Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve Safari


Good safari experience

We spent 2 days with Heritage Tours and did a wetland safari / hippo cruise and then a Hluhluwe safari. The tour guide was excellent and guided at our pace, showing us everything we wanted to see. The big animals were great, and we spent plenty of time watching the birdlife that we were interested in. We also got to snorkel at Cape Vidal. Back at the residence, the accommodation and food were good.

Amazing safari with Hermitage Tours and Safaris

This company are just amazing. Every person we dealt with was so friendly and so professional. We left our cruise ship at Richards Bay after being collected from the port and driven to St Lucia. We were taken on a number of safaris including a night safari and a riverboat among st the hippos. The accommodation was wonderful and the meals very good. On the last day we were driven to Durban so that we could fly to Capetown and re-join the ship. Everything went to plan and we all (6 of us) enjoyed an amazing adventure. Would definitely recommend this company to any travelers.

Excellent game drive

Had the most amazing day today with heritage tours. We did the big 5 game drive recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. Unfortunately didn't see either of the big cats but it's totally luck of the draw, and we got so close to the animals we did see that it didn't matter. Our guide, Rick, was great, really knowledgeable and a great cook too! List of what we did see: Elephants, giraffe, rhino, zebra, water buffalo, African wild dogs, baboons, vulture, eagle, kudu, monkeys, warthogs.

Very good 1-day Safari!

We had a wonderful day safari in the Hluhluwe park.
Our guide Rick picked us up at 5AM at our guest house and from there it was one hour drive to the reservation.
We got to see four out of the great five.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the the animals and life in the park. Overall a very nice experiance!

I have used this firm twice now and both times they have been excellent, both times our guide was Yam who was highly professional, with excellent knowledge and a great manner, they also show great respect for the park and its animals, unlike some of the other companies I saw.
The food was of good quality and the whole tour was excellent value for money. I intend to use this firm again later in the year when I return with my family.


We were also fortunate to have the pleasure of joining Arnu and Jabulani on the safari tours. Their extensive knowledge of the local area, wildlife, and ecosystems added an enriching dimension to our visit. Arnu and Jabulani's expertise made the tours not only informative but also deeply engaging, leaving us with a comprehensive understanding of the natural beauty and wildlife that surrounds Heritage House. Their passion for the area and its wildlife was contagious, and it truly enhanced our experience.

Thoroughly recommended

A thoroughly professional organization. Communication is excellent at all stages. Great value for money. Guides were always on time and amazing at tracking the animals. The meals included were tasty and varied. A very flexible organization that is eager to ensure you have the best possible experience. I hope to return
