Durban is the third or second largest city in South Africa, depending on what source you reference. Getting around is very easy and secure as Uber operates there. We elected to go visit a replica Zulu village with some singing and dancing via a ship's tour. While it was "ok", the drive up to the village and the views from their coffee/tea shop were almost worth the trip alone. We had a very good guide who kept us entertained up and back with useful information on life in the city. The other point of entertainment is that the pilot which joins the ship to guide it in and out of port arrives and departs by helicopter. It was a show in itself. Read Less

I just loved the dancing experience. Made all the more special as we attended with school trips and it was great to see the kids enjoying. The visit to the crocodiles made my day however - again another very good guide who gave us a good insight into Durban living. Also another good coach driver who didn't speed and didn't scare me.

A fraudulently advertised tour.
A fraudulently advertised tour. It was not a visit to a Xulu tribal village, but rather one to a 31-year old TV set with two hours of down time to shop at a single curio shop and drink coffee. A travesty.
