.Durban City Tour – Code; SCDC
Our tour of Durban City, a bustling metropolis, often called the cultural ‘melting pot’ of South Africa, includes a drive through the sports corridor with its impressive sporting facilities to the Blue Lagoon area on the Umgeni River where you get a panoramic view of the whole bay of Durban city.
Then past the so-called Apartheid Beaches, the Marine Parade (Golden Mile). Here you will see the rickshaws, en route to the impressive developments at the new Point Waterfront area. We drive past the busiest harbour in Africa and various historical monuments. Then through the city centre where the original Railway Station building, the City Hall and the Post Office buildings each have a story to tell.
At the Indian Market, you get a glimpse into the Indian culture and bargain for souvenirs and spices. Then a visit to the Botanical Gardens with its extensive collection of trees and plants from all over the world. You’ll also find the famous cycad collection and orchid garden. You have the option of being dropped off at the end of the tour at the Ushaka Marine World with its world-class aquarium, and many shops and restaurants.
