Is Durban the ultimate South African playground?

Posted by Anita Froneman on 3 November 2020

Durban Tourism visited Gauteng over the weekend of October 31 to promote the coastal city as a local holiday destination.

‘This is part of our Rediscover campaign which is to launch the city of Durban [as the place to be] as we approach the festive season. We are reaching out to different markets, especially Gauteng, which is our key source market. Durban is open for business and is the place to be,’ Deputy head of Durban Tourism Winile Mntungwa told Sowetan Live.

Is Durban the ultimate South African playground?

Durban offers something for everyone.

She also assured the public of the City’s attention to COVID-19 compliance.

‘Durban is on its way to recovery as a tourism stakeholder since the time the Covid-19 pandemic happened. Through our product quality strategy we embarked on an intensive compliance of the protocols for Covid-19. From the airport to the different tourism attractions, the hotels anywhere you go the compliance is there.’

The coastal jewel is a hub of activity for both young and old. Visit Durban Funworld, the iconic beachfront amusement park or explore the city centre aboard the open top double decker ‘rickshaw’ bus.

The three-hour ride will teach you about the history of the city and its infrastructure.

Those more inclined to learn about nature can visit Crocworld Conservation Centre to see different species of crocodiles, alligators and other reptiles.

The adventure seekers can explore quad bike trails, paintball, clay pigeon shooting, zip lining, archery and 4×4 trails at the popular Highstakes Venue.

Or, for those who have had a long year and have no desire to get that heart rate up, the endless beaches are waiting.
