          An extra touch of amazing to this country
          Zulu Safaris organized our transfers to the Drakensberg for our 5-day trek. Sotiri, the owner, was a wonderful guide and we highly enjoyed meeting him. He kindly picked me up from the airport and showed me around Durban even if this wasn't part of the tour - he keenly shared information about his country that he obviously loves and knows like the back of his hand. His passion for organizing and designing trips around SA was obvious from the moment I met him. The 5h trip to Witsieshoek was filled with interesting conversations, great playlists, many funny anecdotes, and good laughs. Sotiri stayed with us overnight in Witsieshoek and kindly helped up settle some minor issues before we departed for our hike - he made sure we were safely on our way and followed our progress during our hike. He was the one picking us up at the end point of our journey to drive us back to Durban, and we loved the trip just as much as the first. His team was highly professional and efficient in organizing our trip and Zulu Safaris felt more like a family than just a tour operator. I can only recommend warmly contacting Zulu Safaris for your next South African adventure for an extra touch of amazing to this country.

          So much fun!!
          We had a really fun day with Zulu Safaris! Both my husband and I have been to the large game parks elsewhere in Africa, and almost decided to give this tour a miss because we didn't think it would compare with the large parks. However, we had an absolute ball! Aaron our guide picked us up from our hotel, right on time, lovely and friendly. First stop the Lion Park, yes it's small but you still get African lions right out your window! I hadn't realised the tour included hand feeding apples to a massive African elephant, so that was an entertaining surprise after viewing the lions. My husband and I climbed on the roof of the safari vehicle and Aaron took great pictures of our encounter with the elephant. Then we drove to Tala Game Reserve, which was bigger than I expected. We were determined to find giraffes, and after about an hour of driving around we came across about 8 of them, including two babies, wandering across the track and hanging out in the bush. Really magical. Again Aaron made sure we got good photos and had the best view. Absolutely no complaints from us, so glad we decided to go ahead with this tour on our last day in South Africa. Our only regret is not taking cash to be able to tip Aaron - being our last day we had run out of rand. Thanks so much Zulu Safaris!

          If You are Staying in Durban, Do This!
          Incredible experience! I booked it on a whim while staying in Durban looking for things to do and I do not regret it one bit. Pick up from the hotel was smooth and had a nice drive north with a man named Masolo (sp?) to the meeting point before heading out in the 4x4. My guide Grant was very friendly and gave a lot of extra details of the land from his personal experience growing up in the region. He handled all of the passports and documents to ensure an easy entry and exit from Lesotho. The drive up the pass was exciting, you really feel every twist and turn and it is simply amazing that humans were able to do it before the creation of the roads and 4x4 vehicles. The views from Sanni Pass were beautiful, and visiting the highest pub in Africa was a nice bonus! We drove all the way up the road despite the snow and ice. Had a great time in the village learning a little bit about the Basotho people's culture and getting a small taste of how they live.

          Trekking in the Drakensberg
          We organised a trek in the Drakensberg mountains with Zulu safari. They agreed to give us a personalised service by driving us to the starting point and picking up a few days later at the end of the trek. They were super flexible, helped us to find the supplies we needed and arranged a last minute accommodation for us as ours wasn’t in a safe spot in Durban. Communication though e-mails and WhatsApp was very easy. We are 100% satisfied and warmly recommend booking trips with them. Plus the manager is sooooo friendly, has thousands of stories to tell and advises to give!

          Unforgettable and incredible experience
          An incredible and once in a lifetime experience! My friend and I had Bafana as our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable and made sure to find our favourite animals the Giraffes. Metres away from animals I use to dream about seeing so close. Cannot recommend this tour enough you have to do this if you visit Durban!

          Safari and Zulu day
          What a wonderful day seeing animals up close. Our driver Freddie was so nice and knowledgeable. Patient with us as we asked questions. Money well spent!

          Fantastic Durban Experience
          Loved the trip and Durban. Fortune was a kind and very courteous driver, patient and ready to provide solutions where help was not forthcoming for example at the Durban Gardens, he became the guide and at the John Dube Center (it was raining too). He was a young happy soul with good suggestions and ideas.

          Art and Mandela
          The views were amazing and the guides took really good care of as a single female traveler and on the elderly side. I would thoroughly recommend this company and their guides.

          Great half day safari, close to Durban!
          Our tour guide was fabulous! Very knowledgeable and tried very hard to find animals for use. We were taken to see the lions up close and fed some elephants. Everything was very well organised.

          Half day safari from Durban
          Today took a wonderful trip from Durban with guide Fortune. The safari was amazing-we saw giraffe, rhinos, zebras and lions. Fortune was an excellent guide-knowledgeable, professional and very attentive. Highly recommend the tour

        One of the best tour that I have in SA. The tour guide is a lovely, gentle and upright Greek man. This is the best choice not only for the beautiful road trip but also the nice opportunity to talk with him. I really enjoyed every thing about this trip, better than the one I had in St Lucia. It is a must for people who like road trip, SA history, African Bushman history and hiking. The scenery along the road is very beautiful and diverse. Every site planned in the itinery is worth of visiting. Highly recommend!!!!

        We had a great experience and excellent, personalized attention from Bafana and Sotiris on an overnight from Durban through Pietermarizburg to Drakensberg. Their extensive experience and passion as hosts made for a very memorable experience.

        Really fun to go to lots of things to learn about and when you get there you are met with the car that he was caught in when he was trying to get away from the cops. Overall 10/10

        The walk is a very interesting challenge, especially for people over 60 years old like us. We would never have been able to do it without the attentive and empathetic help that Frederick gave us. We have no words to thank you. In the case of Rafael, who explained to us about the cave paintings, we were very satisfied.
