Durban City Tour


Durban & Dolphin Coast

Variety of Durban City Tours on Offer

Exactly what you will see on a Durban city tour does vary depending on which of the 2 or 3  tours we book. All will give you a unique perspective on the city. You’ll discuss its historical past, taking you back to a time where elephants roamed the Berea and hippos inhabited Durban harbour!

Durban city tours – Scheduled half day

You can book a half day Durban city tour showing you the city highlights if you are short on time. You join a small group of people (usually 6 to 8 people max). This tour will typically include:
Wilson’s Warf,
Durban harbour,
The Golden Mile,
Moses Mabhida Soccer Stadium,
Florida road and perhaps
And the Durban Botanical Gardens.

Private tours of Durban

We prefer suggesting private tours as there are so many different activities to enjoy in Durban. Families or active people may prefer spending more time at uShaka Marine Centre. You can also enjoy the Skywalk at the Durban Stadium, or even the Skyfall…

Those interested in exploring Zulu culture will want to focus on some of Durban’s small museums and art galleries – the Phansi Museum, the African Art Museum and the amazing Campbell Collection (which will need pre-booking). Yet others may want to spend more time exploring Durban’s botanical gardens and perhaps visit Umgeni River Bird Park.

We recommend taking a private guide for the whole day so that you have enough time to also visit the Valley of 1000 Hills, or spend time at uShaka Marine World. Contact us to quote on a tour that will suit your family’s interests best.

City Walking Tour

A great alternative is to enjoy a walking tour of Durban. There’s really no better way to explore a city than walking her pavements & experiencing the daily lives of her citizens first hand. Join us as we walk through Durban’s past and experience her present. You head into the Warwick markets and dive into the sensory explosion of the Victoria, muti and early morning markets. You also see the Workshop, the City Hall buildings and the Madressa Arcade. Educate your palate on the origin of the ‘bunny chow’ as you gorge on this traditional Durban fare for an early lunch.


Note: Please note that we don’t arrange these city tours as stand-alone activities. Only as part of a tailor-made holiday booked with Cedarberg Africa. If you are looking for just a city tour, why not contact Ilios Tours.
