Much like when one eats too much birthday cake or sees their favourite film one too many times; what used to be the equivalent of a exclamatory “holy noodles!” becomes as dull as a corduroy pantsuit. Get your groove back and explore some sensational scenery with today’s Groupon: Pay R195 for a fun and informative tour of the city of Durban.
Famous for its sandy beaches, bunny chow and steamy subtropical climate – Durban is a playground for the fun-seeking civilian. However, while Durbanites may think they’ve explored their beautiful city, the friendly and informative folk at Strelitzia Tours are there to extend your Durban experience. With tons of tour knowledge and the gift of the guide, sit back and keep your peepers peeled for a four-hour tour of stunning cultural sites, legendary landmarks and plenty of sun, fun and sea.The first stop on your tour begins at the Kwa-Muhle museum to learn about the Indian and Zulu influences on Durban culture during the early days of Apartheid. Next, get a glimpse of the new soccer stadium as you continue along Durban’s famous Golden Mile – a popular stretch of beachfront. Continue on to the Harbour entrance for a short stop and then soak up a truly stunning shopping experience with a quick visit to the Victoria Street Market – an exciting street market full of spices, souvenirs and great buys. Travel along the Victoria Embankment as the tour passes the Dick King Statue and the Yacht club; then drive past the sugar terminal and the University of Natal. For a truly unique experience, the tour proceeds through the Cato Manor informal settlement before taking you through the residential areas of Berea and Morningside and straight to the Botanical Gardens where you can view the splendid orchid house.
