We had a great time during the 3 days we stayed in St. Lucia. Bryan, our tour guide was great! He took us to the iMfolozi Big Five Safari, which was amazing. He also gave us a tour around the iSimangaliso Cape Vidal Bush and Beach, which was a dream. Not only did he know a whole load about the wildlife but was also super passionate about his job. It is evident he knows what he’s talking about and that he wants everyone else to love the nature as much as he does. I would highly recommend Heritage tours and safaris. It was an unforgettable experience.
