Explore Durban's unique blend of diverse Asian, African and European cultural influences during a tour of this coastal city.

Depart the pier for a scenic drive along the palm tree-lined Victoria Embankment. Pass by highlights such as the Vasco Da Gama Clock, the Dick King Statue, the imposing Durban Club and the Yacht Club, before stopping briefly at Currie Hill for panoramic views and photo opportunities of the city below.

Visit the Durban Botanical Gardens. Upon arrival, you will take a leisurely stroll through the lush gardens, which house a wide variety of local flora and are renowned for their orchid house and rare collection of cycads, a plant dating back to prehistoric times.

Your scenic drive also takes you past the Old Market Square, which is reminiscent of the City Hall in Belfast and serves as Durban's municipal offices. Drive by the Juma Mosque, which is reputedly the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, and famous for its massive golden dome and turrets, stopping for pictures at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Pay a visit to the Victoria Street Market, commonly known as the Indian Market. Browse amongst a splendid array of delicately-fashioned ebony and ivory ornaments, herb and spice stalls, and wooden carvings. Bargains are endless, and time permitting, you’ll have a brief time to shop independently.
