Was a great outing. The Tour guide was very fiendly and a very good driver with experience driving the 4x4 on the steep gravel slopes. Beautiful views.

A nice day out in the Mountains

We actually did a different trip to the above and went to Giants Castle and the cave paintings as the Sani pass had been shut by the rain which had fallen. This was a nice trip though and our guides Benson and Frederick were good and very knowledgeable. We had a nice walk in the mountains and also visited the Nelson Mandela capture site and Howick falls. A very enjoyable day out.

Otherworldly experience
katevanrij

This was a life changing experience. The guide picked us up in Durban. We went there and back in one day, I definitely recommend splitting this into a two day excursion as it is an exhausting day. This excursion is dangerous but we were in good hands with our experienced driver. Lesotho was otherworldly, like nothing I have ever seen. Guides did a good job of giving us the context of their civilization and cultural. I cannot put into words what it is like to journey to this isolated, beautiful, vast, heart wrenching place. The drive up was extreme. Lots of rocking and big bumps for several hours, NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. My only concern was my guide was exhausted on the way back to Durban. Going too fast and risky that last leg. For your own safety, split up into two days.

Ndomiso is a charming, informative, tour guide and a skilled 4x4 driver. The vistas are majestic and continuously breathtaking this tour was the highlight of my visit to Durban. One hiccup: the Viator information on the website, as well as the person answering the phones at 1st Zulu Safaris, indicated that hotel pick-up is the only option, when, as it turns out, consistent with their policy of dropping off at private homes and guesthouses, you can be picked up from them, as well. I made an unnecessary early morning trip to a hotel not 10 minutes from where I was staying, only to discover that Ndomiso had shown up at the house to puck me up! Fortunately, there was only one other tourist to pick up, but had there been more, the tardiness caused by miscommunication could have been a significant impediment given the duration of the journey.

Sotiri from First Zulu Safaris is a guide extraordinaire! He and his son Christos and tour guide Pieter far exceeded our high expectations. In fact Sotiri and his son have become our friends and we happily engaged Sotiri for other trips and transports. We couldn't have been more pleased, and know that you will be too!
