World Cup Trip June 2010

by cairngorm

Great news with the ticket application, I got 3 x tickets for 5 different matches in Durban. Myself and two friends will be staying in Durban for approx 2 weeks and I have a few questions.

1. I assume the city centre is a place to avoid, what suburbs or nearby places are safe? (for example, I've heard Umhlanga Rocks is the place to go??)

2. Is Durban getting any special activities etc to help entertain the 1000's of extra visitors?

3. Any pictures of the new stadium?

Thanks for your help. looking forward to it already.

City centre is a place to avoid. Good suburbs would be Glenwood(not umbilo), Morningside would be my choice, stunning restaurants and pubs, lots of B&B's (5 min to stadium)and central to everything(beaches, sports, freeways, shopping, restaurants),Berea (10 min to stadium), Durban North(15 min to stadium), Glenashley(15min stadium), La Lucia, Umhlanga (20 min), Umhloti (30 min to stadium), Ballito (45 min to stadium)

The fan zones are apparently from Ushaka Beach to Blue Lagoon and awesome stretch of beach. my picture is a picture of the new stadium In Durbs. Remember weather will be best in Durban at this time

Google Trip Advisor South Africa as there are lots of posts on World Cup Plans, there is also a world cup trip member group (a bunch of people coming to 2010 SA all from different parts of the world and all hoping to hook up with other people they have met on the site.

Yep, Durban's city centre is a mess - avoid! While crime is indiscriminate and any suburb may pose potential safety risks, I'd try and stay within the Durban North to Umhlanga Rocks corridor.

Durban beachfront is also a good option for your accom.You'll be able to walk to the stadium.A pleasant walk & the stadium will be linked to the beach walk-ways.Walk in groups & you'll be fine.Safety being beefed up in all 2010 cities.Not a bad idea to avoid car hire & hire for out of town trips only.The Lions rugby tour was in Durban this past weekend & thousands of fans stayed on the beach front & walked to the rugby stadium (Next to soccer stadium)
The beach front will be the centre point for 2010 activities in Durban so will have plenty specific activities.
Great beaches,great food,great people & great winter weather.
Come to Durbs--you'll love it !!!

Travel Tips for Durban

Golden mile city.

by Bert_Pearson

The beautiful harbour where we can see the vast expanse of Indian Ocean from the fishing wharf.

On the Victoria Embankment you can see the Vasco Da Gama clock.

Durban is a Zulu name that translates: Place where the Earth and the Ocean meet. Botanical garden with its magnificent display of exotic blooms in the orchid house.

The Indian Market with its wares on display.
Don't miss a romantic walk on the golden beaches and sea front
Have fun at the open-air markets.

good ground bad light

by Charlie_UK

Test match cricket at Durban is great, except for the 9.30 start - it should be sooner because in the afternoon the humidity brings the clouds rolling down to the coast and the light fades. This robbed England of victory with just two wickets to take. sun hat and cream - most of Kingsmead is uncovered and it is very hot.

Quad Biking in Umdloti

by GerryFM

15 minutes north of Durban is the beautiful area of Umdloti (pronounced Um shlow tea), with its Sugar Cane Plantations, rolling hills and spectacular coastline.

For an activity of a different nature you can enjoy a quad biking excursion, through the sugar cane plantations and along the rugged coastline.

An excellent day out!!

The ride is a 45km round trip traveling completely off-road. It meanders through sugar cane fields, along the Umdloti estuary, with its abundant bird-life, and ends up on the Dolphin Coast. At spectacular view points along this magnificent coastline riders can spot dolphins, whales and whale sharks and can also clearly see the entire bay of Durban, Ballito and Umhlanga from the bush. The riders wind their way along this breath-taking coastline with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean while the powerful breakers crash several 100 meters below them - this feeling of complete freedom can only be cmpared to one that a Zulu Impi would have felt years ago

For the curry lovers

by cleocat about Mahal Al-Nur

Nice view over the sea and beach. It was raining so we couldn't sit on the balcony but sitting outside on a sunny day should be very nice. Friendly staff and owners. A bit expensive. Gary believes in eating real Indian curry when in Durban so this one was his treat. The kids had hamburgers. I had a basket of curry goodies. Wasn't too impressed. Gary had lamb curry that was so hot it made him sweat so he was completely happy.

The Royal Hotel

by kentishgirl


A great tip from Pat at Smith's Cottage was to visit the Royal in central Durban for the outstanding views.
As she told us "Walk in like you own the place, go to the back and jump in the lift to the pool deck"! This is exactly what we did. There were only a few people in the pool when we were up there, and the views over Durban, the city and the coast were superb.

When we came back down, we strolled past the cafe....the cakes looked amazing....so we strolled back in there and treated ourselves to coffee and cake in style!
