This is the worst tour we have ever booked with Viator. A crowded old van, with little or no AC, windows were not clean, Wonder our guide was hard to understand, with little or no information of what we were seeing, he got lost for one and a half hours, had to ask a stranger for directions, plus only visited two of the three Game Parks scheduled. My advice stay away from this tour.

Excellent half day game drives to the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa
, Feb 2020
Excellent half day tour of two game parks from Durban to the KwalZulu-Natal region of South Africa. The tour started with a pick-up at the Durban cruise terminal. Our cruise ship was delayed entering the port - but our guide/drive waited patiently for us & another cruise couple for the ship to finally dock. The drive in our guide's safari vehicle took some time before arriving at the Natal Lion Park. The game drive was within a rather small park area but we were able to view an elephant (more tame than wild) and a pride of lions in a separate section of the reserve. For some reason we did not stop at the nearby African Prey Sanctuary (not a major issue). The next stop was at the Tala Private Game Reserve. Our tour guide carefully drove & positioned the vehicle to let us observe and photograph most of the reserve's wildlife. We were able to view/photograph giraffes, zebras, warthogs, wildebeasts, ostriches, a group of rhinoceros and various types of antelopes. Our guide/driver was very professional and knowledgeable of the reserve's wildlife which made the drive very enjoyable.
Wonderful 1/2 day + safari to Lion Park & Tala Game Reserve
, Feb 2020
Zulu Safaris picked us up at the Durban cruise terminal upon our arrival, and took four of us in a Land Rover to the Lion Park where we saw lions and elephants (kept separately) and fed by the owners. Then to the Tala Game Reserve where the animals run wild. Plenty to see! Great guide and assistant! They gave us our money's worth and more.
Excellent experience!

Would highly recommend! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He steered us to see every type of animal in the park up close.
Fantastic Half Day Safari
, Jul 2019
We had a fantastic guide and excellent mix of animals. Lion park was amazing, being able to get close to lions and elephants. At the private reserve we got to see so many animals including rhinos, hippos, giraffes, zebras and many more. Fantastic way to see many animals in a short time.

Sehr gut
, Feb 2020
Die Safaritour war sehr gut. Wir haben bei dem 2.Tierpark sehr viele Giraffen, Büffel, Springböcke,Warzenschweine, Nashörner, Zebras, Impalas, Buschböcke, Schildkröten eine Hyäne einen Erdwolf, Affen, Strauße und verschiedene Vogelarten gesehen. Den 1. Tierpark kann man sich sparen, da die Löwen in einem abgeschlossenen, größeren Käfig sind. Zwei Elefanten haben wir gesehen.
