Durban: Secrets of KwaZulu Natal including Air
This 10-day South Africa trip takes you to Durban and KwaZulu-Natal, encompassing history, wildlife, and the natural beauty of this much-loved part of the country.
Staying in Durban itself, start with a full day exploring the city’s highlights. Come face to fins with the local ocean life at UShaka Marine World, and follow the revitalized ‘Golden Mile’ beachfront before browsing the markets of Warwick Triangle, where up to 6000 street vendors sell their wares. The tour concludes with a visit to the Durban Botanic Gardens and the spectacular view from the top of Moses Mabhida Stadium. The following day, journey into the heart of Zululand with a visit to the largest Zulu kraal, a visit with an iSangoma or traditional healer, a local beer tasting, and a thrilling display of traditional dance.
It may not have the instant name recognition of Kruger, but Hluhluwe-Imfolozi is one of South Africa’s best game parks. Rising early, you’ll embark on a game drive, searching for the Big 5 (lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and black rhino) among other majestic creatures. Bird watchers will also love this region with 425 distinct species recorded. From wildlife to landscapes, go on to the Drakensberg Mountain Range, including the Giant’s Castle. You’ll explore the nearby caves, and see Bushman paintings dating back millennia.
South Africa boasts a rich mix of ethnic influences from near and far, which has contributed to its distinctive and delicious cuisine. To devotees, the Curry Buffet is more a site of pilgrimage than a restaurant. But even a currysceptic will appreciate the sweeping Indian Ocean views as you enjoy this multicultural feast at Oyster Box Hotel. Your final full day is one of history, exploring the Battlefields of the Anglo-Zulu war,Isandiwana and Rorke’s Drift.
