Hello Is it possible for 1st Zulu Safaris to collect a group of 4 adults from cruise ship terminal? We are in port for one day only and would love an experience we won't forget in Durban and surrounding area. We dock on 13th April on Queen Mary2. We are more interested in sight-seeing and cultural experiences. I would really appreciate your reply and look forward to our arrival in Durban. Kind regards Yvonne Benson
