Durban has the highest concentration of Indian people outside of India in the world and as such, is known for its delicious Indian cuisine. Going to a local Indian restaurant for lunch or supper is a highlight for most tourists. Indulging in a local delicacy known as the “bunnychow” is a must for those wanting to try something new.
Just north of Durban is the small coastal town of St Lucia, an area known for its wildlife. Take a day trip there and enjoy a water safari trip where you can view hippos, crocodiles and birds for a reasonable price. A little further north is Sodwana Bay, South Africa’s top spot for coral reef diving and snorkelling. Sodwana has an impressive marine conservation project as well as ocean life which includes bottle nose dolphins, whale sharks, leatherback turtles and a wide variety of fish.
