Highlights / General details
Let us introduce you to Durban, a multicultural City shaped by a complex collaborative history involving the early colonial settlers, the indigenous Zulu population, and the Indian community who arrived as indentured laborers in the 19th century. To call it a city of contrasts is often an understatement.
Our tour begins as we travel along the brand-new Golden Mile, the revitalized beachfront promenade which hugs the beckoning beaches of Durban. We move through the City, viewing the majestic City Hall, and enjoy its humorous history!
We continue to the small craft harbor viewing the 8th largest harbor in the world. Drive past the sugar terminals and very busy harbor warehouses on our way to the University of Natal – Durban Campus where we view lovely sights of the harbor down below.
Then we visit the bustling African/Indian Markets at Warwick Triangle – home to 9 distinct markets developed around Durban’s largest public transport interchange and where approximately 6000 street vendors ply their trade, to an average of 460,000 daily commuters – an authentic experience.
From culture to nature, we visit the peaceful Durban Botanic Gardens founded in 1849, a treasure trove of massive trees from Asia, Africa and America, and a magnificent orchid house.
We then visit the icon of Kwazulu Natal, the Moses Mabhida Stadium where you will have the option of experiencing the cable car ride (own account) to the top of the Stadium for that phenomenal view of Durban and its surroundings.
Afterwards, we’re going to sit back and be entertained at uShaka Marine World, where the dolphin, seal and penguin shows are not only spectacular, but fun and light hearted too! Welcome to Durban.
