Big Rush Urban Adrenaline

If you are looking to do something daring and out of your comfort zone, try visiting the Big Rush Urban Adrenaline. This place will give you a serious adrenaline rush. Bish Rush has the World's tallest swing. You will get to swing across the Moses Mabhida Stadium and see the beautiful city of Durban from up high. This is a must-do for your bucket list.

Hare Krishna Temple of Understanding

One of the best places to have your spirit uplifted and to experience some peace is at the temple. The Hare Krishna Temple is a major tourist attraction in Durban. The architecture in the temple is breath-taking. Marble tiles, gold-tinted windows, brass ornaments, crystal chandeliers, and golden statuettes are some of the things you will get to see at the temple.

Natural Science Museum

The Natural Science Museum is a great place to take your family to learn about Earth, its history, and life on Earth, both past and present. The other great thing is that entrance is free!

Krantzkloof Nature Reserve

If you are looking to go hiking, then Krantzkloof Nature Reserve is the place to be. But if you are not too keen on hiking, you can still have a great time by taking the sub-trail which allows you to go down to the waterfalls. Remember to pack your picnic baskets as there is a great picnic spot within the Reserve. 

Go on then, explore Durban and enjoy your festive season.
