Even in winter, Durban has a temperate climate. However, it is also unpredictable. Layered clothing is recommended and it is important to respect the city’s varied cultures and wear conservative clothing (less-revealing tops or short skirts). Shorts should be knee-length. Please also be sensible about displaying money and jewellery.
Children must be 6 years of age to 11 years inclusively. Children below the age of 6 are not permitted on this tour.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
Take the chance to experience the diverse charms of coastal Durban on this revealing cultural tour of Durban's Zulu heritage. This Durban city tour will weave a narrative through Durban's history and culture through visits to museums and heritage centres, traditions, and true local knowledge. It's time to jump head first into Durban - let's go!
Gain an understanding of the rich local history of Durban, including the impact of the apartheid era, at Kwa Muhle Museum. At the Cato Manor Heritage Centre, your attention is sure to be captured by the impressive photographic exhibitions tailored to make you think.
Be sure to seize the opportunity to visit the Old Court Museum, a place once frequented by Gandhi, before getting caught up in the vibrant energy of the Victoria Street Market. With bags of aromatic spices, beautiful flower garlands, vibrant art and tempting curios, this atmospheric market is a great place to gain insight into the diverse subcultures of Durban.
Shifting gears, this Durban Zulu tour will now lead you towards some significant sights of the Inanda Heritage Route - a trail laden with African and Indian heritage. From there, we promise you'll be swept up in the rhythmic energy and tribal beats of a traditional Zulu dance performance in a historic township village.
Enjoy a refreshing beer, then choose to stay on and feast on a delicious selection of traditional African dishes, served with a further set of entertaining Zulu cultural dances. For diversity of culture, historic sights, fine architecture, and unique markets - there's really no African city quite like Durban!
