Visit Durban and enjoy the sights!

Durban, formerly Port Natal, is the largest city of KwaZulu-Natal province and chief seaport of South Africa. Its tropical beaches and all year warm temperate climate offers an unforgettable stay.
Durban offers a charm like no other South African city as well as being culturally rich in history. You can also enjoy many of Durban’s amazing activities – from picnicking at one of the parks; uShaka Marine World; walking Durban's beachfront - the Golden Mile and sampling the iconic local "bunny chow" dish on the pier overlooking the warm Indian Ocean.

Day Day 1. Durban Highlights. Durban City . Accommodation. Road Lodge, Umhlanga.

This package includes a free airport transfer - either arrival OR departure. If you have opted for an arrival transfer, you will be met on arrival at Durban King Shaka Airport and transferred to your hotel in Umhlanga Rocks. After settling in the rest of the day is yours at leisure to explore Umhlanga and it's many highlights.

Head to the beach promenade to explore or sit at a local cafe and enjoy the sound of the rumbling Indian Ocean over a delightful cocktail.

Day Day 2. Durban Highlights. Durban City . Accommodation. Road Lodge, Umhlanga.

After breakfast, we head to Durban city for the first half of the day exploring Durban City on a tour. Learn about Durban's' origins from local tribes with Zulu warrior legends and the early colonial settlers to the 'contracted' Indian labourers who arrived in the 18th Century to work on the endless sugar cane fields. We visit highlights such as the Golden Mile, Phansi Museum and the Botanical Gardens.

The second half of the day we visit milestone sites, where South Africa's first steps toward Democracy were taken. This includes the site where Nelson Mandela famously cast the first free and fair election vote in 1994. We then learn more about Mahatma Gandhi and his vision and time spent in Durban while visiting his homestead in the local settlement. Seeing the informal townships that skirt the suburbs we visit the oldest African private school for girls, Inanda Seminary. This Heritage Tour offers an insight into the individuals and communities of past icons and their contribution to empowering the people of South Africa.
