A Night Drive Safari is a game drive that operates after dark, with a powerful spotlight. This 3 hour safari on a Open Game Drive Safari Vehicle offers one a chance of witnessing the elusive Leopard, Giraffe, Buffalo, Elephants, Hippo’s grazing, Chameleons and so much more.
The advantage of a night drive is that they provide access to nocturnal species that are rarely seen during the day, such as Hippo, Bush Babies, Chameleon’s, Aardvarks and Leopard are also more active after dark, and there is a greater probability of seeing them hunt at night. Night Drive Safaris are ever so popular with the safari-goers to take part in. A night drive safari has a unique and exciting atmosphere; different types of animals (nocturnal) are active at night, from the big cats to smaller mammals. With varying behavior nocturnal animals are bolder at night and shy during the day this increases your chances of witnessing that elusive Leopard. Exhilarating to sit in the middle of a herd of elephants in the moonlight or the thunder pounding sound of buffalo hooves in the darkness is also quite a rush.

My 2 friends and I travelled to St Lucia for a 24h safari experience. We did the night safari with Timbo, the 5am safari with Jacques and also the boat trip. All 3 trips were great, but the highlight is probably the 5am trip to the iSimangaliso game reserve with Jacques. Jacques was a very good guide, with great knowledge...
This is the choice of operator for all your activities in St.Lucia. You definitely get your money's worth with this professional company. We used Heritage for the Day Safari to Umfolozi, the Night Safari and boat cruise on the estuary. All our guides we excellent - knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Heritage tours really made our time great.
Our 2 night package was full of activities that were very professionally run. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and our guides were particularly knowledgeable. I would recommend this company for fantastic value.
