Stunning scenery, new friends & cultural insights

Everything from pick up at the Zulu Safari Office to our arrival in Lesotho and back to SA worked out well. We first of all went to PMB to see Ghandi’s Statue and hear a little bit more about KZN’s capital. Then we picked up a nice couple from Boston, who we spend the day with. Our guide Nduduzo NeNe was superb in explaining the landscape and culture to us. He was helpful getting nice pictures and kept up to our wishes and questions. It was good to have an experienced 4x4 driver for the Sani Pass and he led us through customs both sides. After visiting the Basotho people of Lesotho we went to the Highest Pub in Africa at Sani Pass and had a light lunch and some beers and ciders. The way back was as rough but we had spent a lovely day with newly made friends and an awesome local. 13hrs were quite exhausting but we were happy to have seen that stunning scenery!

Worth the day trip for solo traveler or group

I only had a few days in Durban alone & wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do. I saw this day trip & I’m glad I decided to do it. My guide picked me up at my hostel as well as another traveler and set out. He packed water for us, made several stops to allow us to take photos, use the bathroom, and get food. He explained interesting facts about the areas as we went. Was cool to stop in the city (starts with a P) where Ghandi started his active non-violence. The pass is a steep climb to a beautiful view. It was cool to get to experience a bit of Lesotho by visiting some locals and stopping by at the highest pub in the world. Professional & knowledgeable guide. He was a good driver & the vehicle was comfortable. Would recommend this company and trip. It does make for a long day though so I definitely fell asleep in the car on the way home.

The best experience ever. Mr. Sotiri was amazing. He shared a lot of history throughout the tour. He stopped at all the best places and took a lot of beautiful photos. I enjoyed every bit of the tour. If I was to do it again, will definitely be with him. Such a kind and charming person.

I had a guide / driver to myself. He conveyed a lot of knowledge about people, places and nature. I had enough time to look at things everywhere. The day trip was a lot of fun. Again any time.

Great landscapes, exciting tour, very nice guide with a lot of knowledge.
