I went on the day trip Sani Pass to Lesotho while in Durban for the weekend! Sotiris the Owner was my guide! He's such a sweetheart and enjoys what he does! He was punctual and very knowledgeable on the area! I was most impressed by his acts of kindness in taking border patrol officers cakes/snacks and he even took rice/oil/bread... More

We found Sotiris and his company completely by chance while strolling through Ushaka Marine, but it turned out to be a very lucky find. We did two tours with Sotiris - to Hluhluwe animal park and then to 1000 Hills Valley. The safari at Hluhluwe began early and we had plenty of time to drive through the park, so we... More

I had free week in Durban and I spent it with Sotiris and his friends. I really enjoyed very, very much in this African experience. Safari was very interesting experience, Zulu people made my day. A day in the Bushman village was also great. City tour, aquarium, mini safari, all was great.

We went to St. Lucia Wetland Park and the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve on a full day trip, it was amazing. It cost about $230 US dollars and it really worths every penny. Our guide Lloyd was really friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this attraction when you're in Durban.

My experience with 1st Zulu Safaris couldn't have been better. It offered a varied and eye-opening perspective on the many delights of South Africa. The Sani Pass trip included several interesting stops along the way and at the summit, including a visit to a Basotho home on the Lesotho side. I was the sole passenger on this trip, and my... More
