Wilson's Wharf -
I'll be in Durban, South Africa for a week during the end of May and wonder if there's anyone out there that lives or has traveled in the area that can recommend food, music, pubs, must sees, day trips, etc.
Watch ships and pleasure craft pass by as you enjoy a meal and drinks. Beautiful at night with the harbour lights reflected off the water.
Bean Bag Bohemia -
Interesting people, art on the walls. Good food above, drunken revelry below.
Indian Connection -
With a large Indian population Durban is known for good curry. A bit Spartan inside - order take away.
Florida Road -
Plenty of restaurants, bars, art galleries. Mo's Noodles and Spiga d'Oro for excellent food.
uShaka Marine World -
Where all the tourists go. Splash about on the slides or go 'eyeball to eyeball' with a Ragged Tooth shark.
Roma Revolving Restaurant -
Twenty years past it's prime but good food and a panoramic view of the city and harbour make up for it.
Umhlanga Beach -
25km outside Durban. Take a brolly and enjoy paradise.
African Raptor Centre -
Ashburton, 75km outside Durban.
Sleepy little beach town about an hour and a half away from the city.
Krantzkloof Nature Reserve -
You won't see the Big Five here but this reserve offers a vast number of species of fauna and flora.
Karkloof Canopy Tours -
Go whizzing along a zip line above the trees. The longest line is over 170m!
Comrades Marathon -
Takes place on the 24th of May. Watch crazy people flirt with death over their 95km ordeal.
The Sardine Run -
With a bit of luck you'll see the start of the incredible annual sardine migration known as the Sardine Run. Sharks, dolphins, cormorants, sea gulls all try to get in on the act.
May is going into the cooler part of the year but Durban has a very mild winter. Hope you have a good time!
