In this episode, David shows us 5 things to do in Durban, South Africa’s third largest city.
David’s first stop is Moses Mabhida Stadium, it may look familiar to you. It was built to host games during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It has the capacity to seat 54,000 spectators. Here you can ride Big Rush, the world’s tallest swing as per the Guinness Book of World Records!
Second thing to do in Durban is visit the Golden Mile, a 6-kilometer long beachfront promenade. Here, you can grab a bite, go shopping, or go surfing. There are plenty of surf shops in the area that also offer surf lessons.
Now for some shopping! David goes shopping at Victoria Street Market (AKA the Indian Market). Here you can find Indian spices, crafts, and there is also a meat and fish market.
From the market, David heads to Durban’s aquarium, uShaka Marine World. It is the largest aquarium in Africa and the fifth largest in the world. For lunch David dined at Cargo Hold restaurant located within an old shipwreck inside Ushaka Marina World.
And the last of the 5 things to do in Durban is to try Bunny Chow at House of Curries on Florida Road. It’s basically curry served in a bun and its delicious!
If you’re flying into Durban to experience the nearby game reserves I recommend you spend a couple of days seeing the city!
