South Africa sparkles with 'hidden gems'. Most international visitors sojourn in Cape Town & Kruger - don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Cape & Kruger is magnificent, but there are other places that I'd love to be able to sell more of - take a bow Durban - Gateway to the province of KwaZulu-Natal, with a rich Indian heritage, the warrior nation of the Zulu, incredible beaches, SCUBA diving, fishing, mountains called 'the barrier of spears', Big Five game reserves & wildlife!

Bunny Chow in Durban, South Africa

Bunny Chow is a minced meat stew made with lamb, chicken, or beef that's served in a crusty bread bowl. The stew is sloppy, rich, and flavorful. Eating the bowl once it's swollen with all the savory stew juices will put you back where you belong: in bed.

Umdloti Beach - great for long walks, fascinating discoveries in rock pools, fun in the ocean and general all round well being. There's nothing like the ocean to wash in a good vibe. Umdloti is north of Ballito - two small lively beachside towns north of the city of Durban - close enough as a day trip and closer still to Durban's King Shaka International Airport.

Durban's beachfront is where it 'all happens' - for the most part gentle and warm ocean waters shaded by the 'bluff' and flanked by a seaside promenade, which is always a hive of activity, loads of restaurants and watering holes (for the humans of course), the wonderful theme park of uShaka Marine World - water slides, a massive marine aquarium in the bowels of a shipwreck.

Seen here are kids catching tadpoles with a beautiful Indian bride and groom in the background. Durban's Botanic Gardens' little restaurant is manned by friendly elderly volunteers, with all the proceeds going to charity.

Now that Durban's airport is close to the city's northern suburbs, north coast beaches and sunshine are close for guests visiting the city. A day trip up north to enjoy good food and ocean views is also not far from Durban. This pic I took a few days ago after breakfast (enjoyed whilst a large pod of dolphins swim past) looking out over a very glorious stretch of coastline - Udloti Beach.
