Driving to Richard's Bay

by buddrikk

Hi! We are arriving in Durban Mid-August. We plan to spend a couple evenings there, then drive to Richard's Bay, by way of a one-night stay in Shakaland.

Can anyone tell me if any part of that plan has a "downside" -- like bad roads on the way...whatever comes to mind? I appreciate any input. Thank you!

I'm reluctant to answer. I haven't been in that area in quite a few years so things might have changed. The road has been improved that i know. It use to be quite narrow. It carries a lot of traffic especially freight vehicles. Hope it helps a bit.

Yes, it helps. Thank you for replying.

Was there last week....

Why not go to St Lucia village rather than Richard's Bay town? The village is touristy, the town is industrial/harbour. All roads excellent and conducive to speeding fines!

We spent 3 nights in St Lucia and bypassed Durban on the way to the Drakensberg.

Thank you, Gerald. As it turned out, we made the drive, and everything went very smoothly. The roads were all good, as you said.

The reason for driving to Richard's Bay was to be picked up at the airport, to spend six days at the ZuluNyala game preserve. While there, we took a tour into St. Lucia, to take the boat cruise of the estuary.

Boy, what a great time we had! I wish we had spent a month or more, instead of just 10 days, in the country! I've been back home two days now, and I sure do miss that trip! Thank you again for your response and suggestions.

The main problem is crime.
make sure there is no rental car signs on your vehicle.
Whites in cars are a target especially if in a hired car.

Burman Bush Park

by MikeAtSea

The city of Durban is one large green area, many parks and gardens make this city quiet beautiful.
One of the more unknown parks is a large area on the outskirts of Morningside and the industrial Umgeni River Valley.
The Burman Bush Park offers a number of hiking trails and walks right through its lush and green subtropical forest.
To reach the park travel through Morningside along the end of Windermere Road, the park is on your left hand side.

A true Indian Gem

by GerryFM about Little India

Little India is an Indian gem, tucked away in the heart of Musgrave's popular restaurant area. Easy to miss on your first visit, the restaurant is reached by climbing a short flight of stairs and is the start of a dining experience you will want to repeat time and again. From the moment you arrive, your host’s friendly service will charm you, leaving you pampered and content at the end of the evening.

The cooks are imported from India from both the North and the South, serving up a wide range of styles and flavours that even includes a category known as "Indian Chinese Food". The range of curries is excellent offering a variety of strengths and flavours, and the very whiff of the Tandoori Chicken going past your table will have you calling for your order of the same It is the more exotic dishes that will pique your interest and your taste buds. Try the Kheema Dosa, a delicate, thin, rice flour pancake filled with mince or the Vada, made from fried green Dhall. It is also the Biryanis that will be another reason to bring you back - delicious in Prawn, Mutton, Chicken, Fish and Vegetable. The list goes on with Chicken and Fish Tikka, Butter Chicken Masala and from the Chinese influence - Spring Rolls, Fried Rice or Noodles and Chicken with Chilli or Ginger. If you can save some room try the Ice Cream with Gulab Jaamun (cream of wheat rounders in sugar syrup, served hot) or maybe the Fruit Sooji. One thing is certain, you will be back very soon.

uShaka Marine World

by dejavu2gb

If you want to see how are things are under water, but dont want to get wet... pay a visit to the largest Marine Theme Park in Afrika, Ushaka Marine World.
Here you can see many different types of fresh, and sea water fish all in the lovely setting right by one of Durban's many lovely beaches.

There is also the option of swimming next to great white sharks, but before you start panicking, there is a thick piece of glass that will separate the two of you, so you will not be shark lunch.
If that does not take your fancy you can also visit Wet 'n Wild, for some fun in the sun one one of the many water slides.
Then if all this activity tires you out, ther is a range of restaurants where you can have some food to give you the boots to explore it even more.



Durban's only amusement park, situated on the Marine Parade opposite the Edward Hotel. It is filled with exciting rides, bumper cars, and children's carousel and kiddie's rides. Experience the thrill of the swing boat. The exhilaration of the break dancer or view the majestic Durban from air. Birthday parties and school groups are catered for. Fast food also available. Hours: 11:00am - dodgem cars, 1:00pm - cable cars, 6:00pm - adult rides.
