This tour was for the adventurous. The drive from Durban to the 4x4 vehicle just outside Underberg can be long but our driver kept the conversation moving, captivating and answered so many of our questions! The tour itself was a drive to the South African border, through no mans land with the sharp turns and steep cliffs. Our guide stopped along the way to allow us to take photos, explore and revel at the majestic pass. Up top through the Lesotho border you can explore a few small local shops, before heading to a local village to have some of the most delicious bread and beer I’ve ever tasted. You learn about the culture, challenges and history of the local Zulu people. You then head back towards to border for a lunch stop at the highest pub before making the slow drive back down the Sani pass to the SA border. Each way up and down the Sani pass is about an hour and half, and very bumpy!
We went to the University of KZN. We couldn't get into the premises due to COVID restrictions. We then went to the Botanical Gardens which was a phenomenal experience. Well manicured, breathtaking and the tour guide is an absolute gem. We also got to take lots of stunning pictures! We then went to see the CBD, the Moses Mabida stadium and the Durban Harbour. It was a marvelous tour. The great thing is that we stopped at multiple places. Our tour guide Sotiris is amazing. He has a true passion for people and his job.
Had an amazing time seeing places in Durban we had never experienced before, even some places we thought we new, became properly unveiled. Learning about Mahatma Ghandi, Langalibalele Dube, and Shembe, amongst others, increased our knowledge
Friendly guard Nyandeni Bheki who drove us around, it was amazing, seeing those animals in the park was exciting. Thank you for good time.
Fun tour that really gave me a good flavour of Durban
