Durban oh Durban! Where to start.. This gorgeous coastal city located on South African, eastern KwaZulu-Natal province is an absolute must see!
Living in London and missing home, my one of a kind family planned what I can only describe as the best surprise – a birthday weekend away in Durban!
I took the British Airways flight from London to Johannesburg and got a connecting flight with Kulula Airline from Jozi to Durban.
Arriving in Durban, the drive into Umhlanga was beautiful. We were staying at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel, where the next few days were filled with bottomless breakfast mimosa’s, the most relaxing massages with the sound of lightly crashing waves in the background and not to mention the lovely dinners with my family.
– On that note, I have to say, The Oyster Box, a short walk away from the Beverly Hills Hotel, is a must try for dinner whilst in Durban.
I was woken up on my birthday with my favourite cake – Red Velvet obviously! Champagne and gifts – I was overwhelmed to say the least and ever so grateful. We had a nice lunch at the hotel followed by dinner at a quaint seafood restaurant.
A trip to UShaka Marine World was also great fun with me being far more excited to see dolphins doing the sweetest tricks than my little cousin was! – clips below.
All in all, I can’t wait to go back to Durban & would love to hear your experiences in this incredible city or SA in general!
