David Highly Recommended 

We honestly couldn't wish for a more passionate, attentive and vigilant tour guide. David made each Game Drive so interesting as he showered us with his wealth of knowledge about all the birds, animals and plants. I learned so much!


We saw 4 of the big five (lions, elephants, rhinos and buffalo's), and even if the weather was against us, we enjoyed our full day safari a lot! Our guide Ngcebo was kind, funny and he was full of knowledge: he helped us to understand the animals' living habits, to identify all the beautiful birds we saw... And both breakfast and lunch were very good. Everything was perfect!

It all depends on what is on offer for your 3-Night Safari Package. Some 3-Night Safari Packages do not include a lot of excursions or safaris. 

Have a look at our 3-Night Safari Package while in St Lucia KwaZulu Natal and you will be utterly surprised by the number of excursions and safaris included. 

All of our safaris and tours are conducted in-house and therefore do not include any hidden costs or commissions. 

This would depend on what it is that you would like to encounter while out on safari. This would also depend on the area that you are to visit. 

Should you be visiting an area that has high levels of wildlife then shorter periods would apply. 

St Lucia KwaZulu Natal is perfectly positioned in that it is virtually inside of a world heritage site and a mere 54km away from Africa's oldest proclaimed game reserve.
