For the last few years we have been offering visitors a number of overnight and multi-day tours from Durban, up until now though we haven’t added these tours to the website. Within a short distance of Durban, we have two UNESCO World Heritage sites in KwaZulu-Natal, the Isimangaliso Wetlands Park and the uKhahlamba/Drakensberg Mountain Range, both are easily accessible in an overnight tour and our Durban Overnight Tours visits both these unique sites.

As one of KwaZulu-Natal’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, the ‘Berg (as the local call it) is home to spectacular scenery and some amazing bushman paintings.

Many people in South Africa today still lead a very simple rural lifestyle and the best way to experience this is too join a local Zulu family and spend a night experiencing the warm and welcoming companionship of the Zulu people. Your night out includes a visit to PheZulu Safari Park as well as the reptile center.
The names of Isandalwana and Rorkes Drift still resonate today as they did years ago. Today we can visit these unique battle grounds on our overnight tour, and get to grips as to what makes these sites so spectacular!
