DURBAN: Cosmopolitan Durban is often passed over by her cooler Capetonian cousin but, there’s a lot more to Durbs than meets the eye… you will find palm trees fanning Victorian buildings, African squatters living precariously under flyovers and high-rise offices towering over temples and curry houses with the marketplaces and streets of the Indian area replete with the sights, sounds and scents of the sub-continent.
NATAL MIDLANDS: Lying in an area that acts as something of a respite for all who go there, the Natal Midlands is a beautiful region filled with stretches of farmland, charming little towns, a wonderful arts and crafts route and picturesque scenery bordering on the sublime.
