Durban, South Africa overview

African and Oriental cultures merge harmoniously in the cosmopolitan city of Durban. Zulu rickshaw drivers beckon passengers along Durban's Marine Parade. Silks and gold-threaded saris tempt visitors at the Oriental Arcades. In addition to golden beaches, Durban offers a fascinating history. It is also gateway to Zululand, where the drumbeat of tribal dancing is testimony to the enduring traditions of the Zulus. A visit to Shakaland is an experience of tribal customs.

Really interesting botanical garden and city tour. Walked through a lively market. Husband’s tour to a Zulu village was very touristy but the guide was informative about life in South Africa.

We stayed 3 more nights in Durban. We made an excursion to Hluhluwe Park, which we loved. The trip to the park is long, but the park with the wildlife made was worthwhile.
