Safari with friends guided by Sotiris

This was an excellent experience visiting several smaller Safari parks near Durban, 1000 hills valley and PheZulu village. A hell of a ride in Paradise with Sotiris (our fellow Greek) and his assistant. A bonus for us the music throughout our trip with him.

You will have to ask the service provider this. I took my wife and two children and we had a very comfortable drive in a tour mini bus.
