Day 2

Half Day Durban City Tour

The tour begins as you travel along the brand-new Golden Mile, the revitalised beachfront promenade which hugs the beckoning beaches of Durban viewing the newly upgraded Point Waterfront. Then move through the City, viewing the majestic City Hall, and enjoying its humorous history! Then 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 your way to the University of Natal - Durban Campus where you view lovely sights of the harbour down below. Then you 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 6 000 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. 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 (own account) to the top of the Stadium for that phenomenal view of Durban and its surroundings.
