Must-see city centres:
Durban is the third largest city in south Africa. It is laid-back but busy and is Africa’s largest port. Durban is a popular seaside destination and is fondal referred to as ‘Durbs’ by the locals. It has an exciting mix of urban Zulu culture as well as a large Indian population as well as English-speaking South Africans.
This is a great starting point for tours of the Anglo-Zulu battlefields and the Anglo-Boer battlefields. The Ladysmith Siege Museum is definitely worth a visit. Ladysmith is home to of one of South Arica’s most famous music groups, multi-Grammy Award-winning Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Just 80 km inland from Durban it is one of South Africa’s best-preserved Victorian cities. It is also the province’s capital city. Here you will find representation of our ‘Rainbow Nation’ with a mix of Zulus, Indians, South Africans of British heritage and a university student population making it a lively mix.
Sodwana has spectacular coral reefs in a national marine protected area. It is among the southernmost in the world and is a scuba-diving and snorkelling mecca. Plus there is a large number of Game fish. Off-season, Sodwana Bay is paradise. In season, it’s incredibly busy.
Once a small seaside village, Umhlanga Rocks has grown from being a small seaside village to now being a bustling lively tourist and residential town. Its seafront pedestrian walkway takes in an old lighthouse, golden beaches, holiday resorts and glitzy hotels. It has great shopping and good restaurants. The area is jam packed during the peak season.
