Durban to London

by Rosenhle

Hi everyone,I live in London, but i come home to Durban every year.But i would love my younger sister to visit me this festive season,Problem is she is in std 9,and is 16years old,i was wondering if she would be allowed to travel on the plane alone,From Durban-change in Jo'Burg,then direct to London Heathrow.i would be there when she arrives.PLEASE RESPOND A.S.A.P...THANX!!

Yes of course she is, I travelled alone on planes from the age of 9! In fact on British Airways, a 16-year old is not even considered as an "unaccompanied minor", unless supervision is explicitly requested, see http://www.britishairways.com/travel/childinfo/public/en_gb.
I would advise you/your parents to contact/look up the conditions of the airline concerned.

She will be able to travel alone paying the full adult fare. My niece does it often (just the Jhb-London leg)and is fine. If the person booking her in alerts the ground staff, who alert the air staff, she will be fine. There is the long wait in jhb to board international but she can take her book / music etc and just wait around. If you fly her as an Unaccompanied Minor, there is sometimes a small charge but at least she will not be left alone. these kids are herded about, but I reckon a 16 yr old shoudl manage. Good luck

Durban to Pietermartizburg

by kentishgirl


As you leave Durban along the highway towards Pietermarizburg you will soon come across the turn off which will lead you through spectacular countryside, you can also take another road through Durbans suburbs without needing to get on the highway.

The area you are driving through is known as the "valley of a thousand hills". It is absolutley superb - the area is so green and so very beautiful.

I will leave tips on this area on my Pietermaritzburg page.

You can't come to Durbs and not chow a bunny!

by CatherineReichardt about Any Indian restaurant

Bunny chow is the quintessential Duban food icon, and quite unlike anything you're likely to eat elsewhere!
On the face of it, bunny chow sounds pretty grim. You take a half a white loaf (brown, granary or anything else with nutritional pretentions simply won't do) and hollow out the middle, leaving a thick shell of crust. Then fill the cavity you have created with any curry of your choice - to my mind, the best are vegetarian, but any curry with boneless meat would work well. As the bunny sits, the liquid from the curry seeps into the surrounding bread, and you simply eat the lot.
There may well be a polite way to eat a bunny, but if there is, I've never seen it, let alone learned how to execute this gentle art! This is definitely 'food for friends' and about as low down the list of 'ideal food to eat on a first date when you're seeking to impress' as it is possible to go! I would recommend dispensing altogether with cutlery and letting the bunny cool down a little before disembowelling it. Then simply rip pieces of bread (with curry clinging to it) off with your fingers and shovel the delectable, soggy mess into your mouth as quickly as possible ... but then I come from unapologetic peasant stock and don't much care for appearances so long as it taste good!
Recently I had a superb Mozambiquean Bunny as a starter in the Protea Edward Hotel on the beach front - a crusty white Portuguese bread roll hollowed out and filled with spicy peri peri chicken livers - utterly divine!

Durban Beaches

by kentishgirl


Durban is a city on the coast, sometimes it is just great to get down to the beach for the sea breeze!
I personally would not walk on the beaches after dark, but during the day the beaches are crowded and popular. They are sand, and depending on which part you visit they are generally free.

You can also swim in the sea here, but not all of the coastline has shark nets.

Durban Natural Science Museum

by kentishgirl


We spent an hour or so wandering around this museum.
I must admit some of it is very interesting and other parts very boring! But there are plenty of options on areas and it makes for an informative and interesting visit.
