Cultural spots

A visit to Durban is not complete without trying our famous Durban curries. Spice it up (literally) and try our signature bunny chows. Indulgence at its best – know it is definitely a cheat meal, but so worth it! Durbanites (and South Africans) are also obsessed with braais (or barbeques) – slow cooked delicious meat on a sunny afternoon reflects our laid back attitude.
