Follow the palm tree-lined Victoria Embankment and pass by the Juma Mosque, famous for its massive golden dome and turrets. Continue, north up the coast to Ballito, a small holiday town located 25 miles north of Durban, that was originally a sugar cane farm. This stretch of the North Coast shoreline is known as the Dolphin Coast and sightings are commonplace, but not guaranteed.
Umhlanga Rocks, is just north of the vibrant city of Durban on the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, with golden sandy beaches, stretching north for more than 125 miles all the way to the spectacular world heritage site, Greater St Lucia Wetland Park.
Situated on the majestic beachfront in Umhlanga, The Oyster Box Hotel overlooks the Indian Ocean and the iconic lighthouse, and is one of South Africa’s most cherished hotels and a national treasure. Discover a timeless elegance and enjoy famous high tea in one of the hotel’s private venues.
Before departing back to Durban, you’ll stop briefly at Currie Hill to take in the panoramic views of the city, including the Old Market Square, representing the City Hall in Belfast and serving as Durban’s municipal offices. Glimpse the Natural History Museum and Post Office, before continuing past the Old Inland Revenue Building and Reserve Bank.
