My friend and I did the tour where we visited two nature reserves, the Birds of Prey center (which I should say, initially I wasn't too stoked about visiting but found it to be a really amazing bird show), and the Zulu village that also hosted a large number of reptiles. Good tour, no doubt.

What can i say about Mr Sotiris... First a great thanks for everything and all the help. You made my stay in SA more easy (you know why). An experienced guide, taking in consideration his clients and the name of his company. Hope I had more time to spend in Durban. But with mr Sotiris as a guide I manage... More

I took a day tour to Sani Pass and Lesotho with Sotiris in December. The entire experience was pretty amazing. I ended up being the only person on the tour so we were able to take some extra time and visit a site that was slightly out of the way. Sotiris was an excellent guide and I loved that he... More

I went on a half-day tour to PheZulu with Sotiris from 1st Zulu. Even though I booked very late and was actually the only person on the tour, the team from 1st Zulu made it work. Sotiris picked me up at my doorstep even though it was bit off the beaten path and was very friendly and helpful all around.... More

We had pre-booked this before leaving Uk as is high season, in hindsight we probably should have waited until we were in SA as this day trip is very weather dependent. It was a very misty day and therefore views were very limited, we will definitely do this tour again on a future holiday in SA. Thami picked us up... More

Exceptional trip to Sani Pass. A Long ride but landscapes make it worth every minute. We booked last minute on Dec 31 for a trip on Jan 1. 1st Zulu Safari managed to find a driver and guide.

Sotiris and his assistant Bella blew me away with the Sani Pass Tour. Sotiris' extensive knowledge and professionalism, and accomdation equalled to an incredibly exceptional tour of the Sani Pass/Lesotho. Highly recommended. Thank you again, Sotiris and Bella for the unforgettable memories I won't forget!-Edward
