Durban weekend w/o a car?

by travelmad478

I'll be flying into Durban for the weekend of March 15/16, staying at a guest house in Musgrave. I was not planning to rent a car for this visit, since it just seems like more trouble than it's worth for such a short stay.

With no car, what kinds of activities could I think about for Saturday? I have read tons of VT tips, but I'm not sure what would be appropriate. The aquarium is a possibility, but I prefer to do more outdoor, wandering-around type stuff. Are there cool areas of Durban that I could grab a cab to and just walk around and sightsee? The Botanical Garden sounds interesting, but I don't know where it is or if I can get there with no car.

Also--it seems like I am getting there in the height of the rainy season. Should I be expecting massive rain on these days? If so I might just stay in my room! :-)

if you are staying in the Musgrave area i would reccomend a car. it is the height of summer and the temperature will be in the low 30 degrees with very high humidity, its far too hot to do any serious walking. you should pay a visit to Ushaka marine world, as it has shops restaurants a waterworld, aquarium and its right on the beach, so walking along the beach is good, the ocean is warm in Durban and perfect for swimming. The botanic gardens is a good place to walk around although i find it a bit boring (plants aint my thing) you can go to movies at musgrave shopping centre and you MUST eat at spiga d'oro in Florida road, great food and atmosphere and very reasonably priced. Mitchell park is in tat area its a beautiful park with lots of caged birds and a small zoo with small animals and crocodiles, there are beautiful plants there and a restaurant/tea garden, its well worth a visit. if it does rain at this time of the year its usually only a short sharp shower with a bit of lightning, usually in the late afternoon. it doesnt normally rain for days like it does in Capetown.

Thanks for that! I will remember the restaurant--sounds great. I presume I can get taxis to places, though? It would be tricky for me to get a car--I will be flying in on Friday and doing business meetings all day, with a driver, so no opportunity to get the car in the first place.

for your own personal safety if you are walking just dont wear flashy jewellery and dont act like a tourist flashing expensive cameras and money around.and dont walk alone at night
taxis are very expensive, insist on the driver using the meter.
i think you would be better off with a car

Public transport arrangements for World Cup

by CatherineReichardt

Details on the public transport arrangements for the World Cup stadia continue to be issued in drips and drabs. The most comprehensive and user-friendly useful summary I've seen was from Prega Govender in this morrning's Sunday Times - follow this link: http://www.timeslive.co.za/sport/soccer/article477498.ece/How-to-get-there
Please note that private vehicles (including taxis) will NOT be allowed close to the stadia, so if you are planning to travel to the stadia in your own or someone else's vehicle, be prepared for a long walk (and potentially problems finding your taxi pick up after the game).
It seems like it will be a long journey to the stadia, but then with excitement at fever pitch and national pride running high, this is all part of the experience!
Let the games begin!

PRETORIA --- VOORTREKKER MONUMENT

by LoriPori

One of Pretoria's most impressive buildings is the VOORTREKKER MONUMENT.Dedicated to the history of the Boers and how they settled in South Africa and the difficulties that they encountered, not unlike the settlers who came to America. On the walls inside the Monument are carvings detailing the history of these brave people.
Hans and I walked up the stairs of the Monument and were awarded with beautiful views of Pretoria.
I believe the entry fee was around 25 rands.
