Tour Details:
We proceed along the Golden Mile, the Durban beachfront, with its golden beaches and the longest uninterrupted waterfront promenade in Sub-Saharan Africa. Get a glimpse of the beach lifestyle that Durban is famous for; walking on the beach, swimming, cycling, surfing. At the Southern end of the beachfront, we drive past the uShaka Marine World aquarium and through the new Point Road development to see the exciting regeneration of the more run down areas of the city centre next to the harbour. Durban harbour is the 4th busiest container port in the Southern Hemisphere and the lifeblood of the city.

We make our way into the hustle and bustle of the city centre with its art deco buildings, the Victorian old Post Office and the Neo-Baroque style City Hall. It is here where the multicultural nature of Durban really becomes evident --- informal roadside sellers, the splendid Juma Masjid Mosque, Hindu temples, the Emanuel Cathedral and the Victoria Street market renowned for its fragrant spices and curios. After a visit to the tranquility of the Durban Botanic Gardens - the oldest surviving botanical gardens in Africa established in 1849. We continue via some beautiful panoramic views over the city and conclude our tour with a stop at the Moses Mabhida football stadium which was built for the Football World Cup in 2010.
