Discover 100 must-do activities in Durban, with MapStudio’s newly released Visitor’s Guide Durban & Surrounds.
This “kif” guide will not only give you interesting facts and figures, but also important information like transport options and “dossing” (accommodation) options.
Keep the laaities happy and tour the city visiting the beaches, surf breaks, learn about fishing, the arts, theatre, dance and festivals, bookshops, movies, music, art galleries, museums, and nightlife.
Of course, your visit would not be complete without savouring delicious Indian food and not to try a Durban “bunny”, is like going to the UK and not eating fish ‘n chips. There are of course lovely restaurants, coffee shops, markets as well as food shops to suit the entire family.
The guide also gives a great section on the parks and game reserves and local is lekker, so shop around for locally produced goods and support cultural diversity, by supporting local artists, crafters, and small businesses.
This guide is a must-have for anyone wanting to visit Durban and the surrounding areas.
So be kwaai bru, and discover the best of Durban!
