Durban city tour

The tour begins as you travel along the Golden Mile, the revitalised beachfront promenade which hugs the beckoning beaches of Durban, viewing the upgraded Point Waterfront. You travel through city centre, viewing the majestic City Hall, and enjoying its fascinating history! 

You will continue to the small craft harbour viewing the 8th largest harbour in the world. Drive past the sugar terminals and very busy harbour warehouses on our way to the University of Natal – Durban Campus where we view lovely sights of the harbour below. You'll then 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, you 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. You then conclude with a visit to an icon of KwaZulu-Natal, the Moses Mabhida Stadium where you will have the option of experiencing the cable car ride (costs for own account) to the top of the Stadium for that phenomenal view of Durban and its surroundings.

I adore Africa and have lived and worked in South Africa as well as travelling across the wider region. Spotting a leopard during a night safari at Namibia Private Game Reserve is definitely an experience I'll remember forever.
