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 enjoying its humorous history!

Then we uncover the past’s harsh system of labour control at the original offices of The Kwa Muhle Museum (closed Sundays).

From history 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.

Lastly, in harmony with Indian culture and history, you’re going local…taste a unique Bunny Chow, traditional ‘take-away’ food of the Indian community… indeed of all South Africans!

We 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.
