About
Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is the oldest proclaimed game reserve in Africa. This 96000 hectare Park is home to the African Big 5, Wild Dogs, Cheetah and much more. Historically this is also the Park that single-handedly saved the Rhinos from near extinction in the '60s when less than 100 Rhinos roamed the planet. King Shaka also made use of the southern section (Umfolozi) as his personal hunting grounds in days gone by. This park not only offers the most magical sights and sounds but some fascinating historical facts. All of our rangers have numerous years of experience in their respective fields and will undoubtedly ensure that you have a marvelous day out on your Full-Day Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park Safari.

This was our first time ever experiencing a safari tour and it was beyond amazing. Our guide, John, was extremely knowledgeable about the animal/bird life and conservation and would get the car as close as safely possible for viewing. We would highly recommend him as a guide if you have a choice. We were fortunate to see so many animals so close to the side of the roads including lion and wild dogs, which are more rare to see. The meals provided were also very tasty and well organized. It is apparent that this company has run many tours - you won't be disappointed.

We had a great day with Jabulani, not only is he a knowledgeable guide who taught us a lot, has a great eye for seeking out wildlife and is clearly passionate about nature, but he also went out of his way to make sure we were well fed and happy throughout the day.

We did a 3-night package which included meals, accommodation, entrance fees, an afternoon game drive, a full day safari, a safari and snorkeling at Cape Vidal and a boat cruise!
We stayed at the wonderful @Heritage House, which was comfortable and luxurious, and because it only has 4-5 rooms, you are well cared for by the lovely manageress, Thea. Breakfasts were really enjoyable!
A big thank you to Bev from Heritage Tours who assisted with our booking (which included communication lasting over a year due to covid). We had to reschedule a few times and we were always accommodated with ease. Thank you! The package was also put together very thoughtfully and we were well guided to ensure a pleasant experience. It was nice not to have to do any of the planning or thinking!
We are also very thankful to our amazing guide, JABU, who was with us for all 3 days and offered a fantastic experience. His knowledge was exceptional, especially regarding the birdlife - he taught us so much. He is also a great braai master!
I highly recommend this package to anyone wanting to experience the wonders of St.Lucia and surrounds. You will not regret it!!

We did the hluhluwe /umfolozi full day safari and isimangaliso wetlands sunset tour and hippo and croc boat cruise tour. John was absolutely informative and knowledgeable on the full day tour... We had an awesome time, the whole day was full of suspense and adventure. Jabulani was a great tour guide for the sunset tour... We didn't spot much animals but never the less was wonderful being out in nature. The Wetlands is absolutely breathtaking. He made the effort to let us see as much as possible. We also did the hippo/croc cruise on the lake. There were alot of hippos but unfortunately no crocodiles... Appears the estuary is hippo dominant. Will definitely recommend this tour group. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the small town of st lucia. Hope to go back someday in the future.

We had a great time on the full day safari. Our guide Senzo Mthembu is very knowledgable. He guided to areas where we could watch Rhinos. He know all the birds in the area even the plant names.

The experience of riding with an eco guide in the vehicle was fantastic. By asking questions, you are also exposed to local culture and plants. The knowledge of the guide (Senzo) regarding the animals and birds contributed greatly to our day at Imfolozi.
