World Heritage Full Day Safari
All rangers are knowledgeable and experienced in the respective areas in which they work daily. These men and woman have dedicated their lives to conservation and this shows in the manner which all safari tours are conducted. Their passion for what it is that they do is incredible and we trust that you too will be inspired.
We went on the day tour where we saw even more animals. Senzo was great, very knowledgeable, and prepared an amazing lunch for us. It was so nice to hear so much information and facts about the park and the animals in it.
Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guides, with lots of information about the animals + environment and very persistent to show all kinds of different animals. Thanks, guys, would definitely recommend you and Heritage Tours & Safaris to others.
We booked a full-day safari with Heritage Tours and were lucky to be hosted by Senzo who had coincidentally hosted our son when he visited in October. Senzo was charming, helpful, and really well informed. Not only did he spot lots of animals and birds but he also told us a lot about them. All in all a great way to see some of Africa's wildlife.
