About EuroZulu Safaris
As a child I, Jeff Asher-Wood, loved to be outdoors all the time, this passion is still with me now, so what I’m saying is: “I’ve never grown up.” It all started in the year
We strive to “exceed the expectations” of our guests from the first email or phone call to the end of our tours!!
Qualified and registered tour guide Jeff Asher-Wood is unquestionably as mad as a box of frogs, but for passion for his work and downright enthusiasm, there’s no one quite like him. Jeff has been called South Africa’s answer to the late Steve Irwin, and when you meet him it’s easy to see why.
A local lad who grew up near Durban, Jeff‘s passion for South African wildlife and wild places shows in spades.
Those lucky enough to travel on safari with Jeff witness first-hand his tireless enthusiasm, his knowledge and sense of humour. One traveller christened a trip with Jeff as the “Ferrari Safari” following a hair raising high speed chase through the bush in hot pursuit of a pride of hunting lions.
Jeff is fast gaining a reputation as the “Big Cat Man” in his relentless pursuit of lion, leopard and cheetah whilst on safari and certainly he does seem to have an enviable knack of spotting big cats, where other guides fail.
The local Zulus believe Jeff’s outstanding record of finding the elusive leopard and other big cats, not forgetting the rare black rhino, has nothing at all to do with luck.

As a young lad growing up in the Cape Peninsula, school always seemed like a rude interruption of my outdoor activities. My Mom used to say that it was only hunger or injury that would bring me back into the house. Most of my leisure time was spent hiking / rock climbing on the mountains of the Cape.
In 2005 I resigned, packed up everything and relocated the family to St. Lucia to set up a deli / catering business. In November 2007 I sold my interest in the business and spent the next 13 months doing “ a bit of this and a bit of that.”
I consider myself very blessed to be able to live my dream. I get to share special times with people from all walks of life – some of whom are “strangers “ when we meet at 4 a.m. but friends when we say goodbye a few hours later.
