Durban Botanic Gardens

Durban Botanic Gardens are regarded by many as some of South Africa's most beautiful city park lands. In 1850, the original curator, Mr. Mark Johnson McKen, laid the groundwork for what it is today. Specialties include the Earnest Thorpe Orchid House, a Herb Garden, a Sunken Garden and the Garden for the Blind. There is an information center and a tea garden. There are live concerts held in the park regularly, throughout the year, and audiences are welcome to bring along a picnic basket. Multiple concerts take place in the hall and the event spaces in the gardens. Workshops and exhibitions are also held.

Umgeni River Bird Park

The Umgeni River Bird Park is one of the finest bird parks in the world, with a spectacular collection of over 3,000 exotic and indigenous birds. A network of paths gives you a fine place to see lories, cockatoos and aras. It is set on the Umgeni River, which is at the edge of Durban city, close to the river mouth. There is a daily show which is highly recommended and an excellent way to see the birds in flight.

uShaka Marine World

uShaka Sea World is a world of wonder and magic. This outstanding shipwreck-themed aquarium is linked to the dolphinarium where delightful dolphin, seal and penguin shows take place throughout the day. There's also a snorkeling lagoon and a touch pool. Scuba divers feed fish, giant turtles and stingrays by hand, and the sharks are awe-inspiring. Sea World is run by SAAMBR (The South African Association for Marine Biological Research), a non-government, non-profit association that also incorporates the Sea World Education Centre and the Oceanographic Research Institute.

Durban Hindu Temple

This picturesque Hindu Temple is located close to the city center, and makes for an interesting visit regardless of faith. It is dedicated to Lord Ganesha, but Shiva is also worshipped here. Visitors are welcome, but must leave their shoes at the entrance before entering. Both men and women are welcome to enter the shrine. Visitors should try and time their visit in the mornings, as this is the most convenient time for worshippers.

1st Zulu Safaris

Offering both daylong and overnight tours of a variety of locations throughout South Africa, 1st Zulu Safaris has something for everyone. From deep sea fishing, to bungee jumping, to safaris, to cultural education, they can arrange for most any itinerary. City tours are also available for those more interested in South Africa's vibrant city life, or combine the beauty of nature and the excitement of the city into one extended tour to see it all! The company also has two satellite offices at the La Montagne Hotel and on West Street on Durban's Golden Mile.

Animal Farmyard

This animal farm is located about 30kms outside of Durban off the Old Main Road; turn left at Heidi's farm stall. It caters for children's parties (bring your own goodies), school outings (pre-school, pre-primary and senior school children) and family outings. This farmyard for children has ponies, pigs, ducks, rabbits, chickens and a host of other animals. The kids can touch and feed the animals if they choose. Pony rides and tractor rides are available. There is also a tea garden where mum and dad can relax while the children play and explore.
