I will drive you along the coast northwards and explain the beginnings of Durban, the local industries and some Zulu culture.
Once there the game drive begins and from the start it's looking for not only the "Big5" but all the other amazing animals. Giraffes, zebras, elephants, cheetahs, lions are just a few of what you might see. This will be a 6 hour Safari drive!
There will be a break for lunch in the form of a Bush braai (Barbecue). This will be at 1 of the many scenic picnic sites.
The return leg will stop at a community market with wonderful fresh fruit and veg and hand crafted curios.

Please note, closed vehicle safaris can be organised. This would be in the H-1 Mini van. Just contact me for details.

A Recent Review of this tour

Paul was very accommodating. He arranged for our boat tour at St Lucia on a smaller boat, and took us to several markets along our route. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Durban, its environs, and its people. We were very entertained and enlightened during our journey to Durban and on the city tour we did the following day.
