Durban city tour

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

You will 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 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'll 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 to the top of the Stadium for that phenomenal view of Durban and its surroundings.

After my first safari at 12 years old, I haven’t stopped going back to Africa, and love South Africa for its incredible cities, world class food and wine, and of course the wildlife. My favourite memory is tracking elephants through the bush in Phinda Game Reserve. Despite their size, they’re so good at hiding!
