Just Some of the Rangers
From the moment we contacted Bev we knew we had made the right choice. The communication and support was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Bev is first class and professional. Our ranger was Skye and you couldn't have wished for a better person. His knowledge was second to none and he was so friendly. We saw four out of the big five and the experience will stay with us forever. Thank you Heritage and all your staff for this unforgettable safari.

It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience and Daryn made it worth while! Flora and fauna are breathtakingly beautiful and our guide knew the answers to all our questions. He was very laid back and didn't rush through the day but gave it the time it needed to make the most out of the experience! We will definitely come back!
