    Unsere Stadtbesichtigung mit Ushaka Marine World, war einfach super. Wir hatten mit Frank, einem lizensierten Guide, von Thomsons Afrika, einen wunderbaren Stadtführer. Er erklärte uns nicht nur die Sehenswürdigkeiten, sondern ging besonders auf unsere Fragen ein, seine fachlichen und historischen Kenntnisse haben uns beeindruckt! Die Tour wurde individuell für uns beide mit einem klimatisierten Minibus durchgeführt, sehr angenehm bei 36C. Unsere Ziele waren das Stadtzentrum mit Rathaus, der Victoria-Markt mit kurzer Einkaufsmöglichkeit, der einheimischen Markt am Bahnhof, das Hafengebiet, der botanische Garten mit kurzer Ruhepause, weiter dann Uni-Campus und den gehobenen Wohnvierteln mit bester Aussicht auf die City von Durban. Ein weiterer Höhepunkt war die Besichtigung des neuen Fußball-Stadions mit Sky-Seilfahrt aufs Stadion, hier ein unvergesslicher Blick auf Durban, indischen Ozean und die Golden Miles. Am Ushaka Marine World angekommen, überrascht uns Frank mit der im Preis enthaltenen Besichtigung dieser wunderschönen Anlage. Nach kurzem Mittagessen waren wir dann Gast bei der Seal-Show, der Delphin-Show und der Pinguin-Show, alle drei sehr interessant und diese sollte man gesehen haben. Beeindruckend war auch der Besuch des Aquariums, super gestaltet. Unser Guide Frank war uns während der vielen Stunden ein sehr angenehmer und sympathischer Begleiter, den wir nur empfehlen können, wie auch die Tour insgesamt! Unsere Erwartungen wurden in allen Belangen übertroffen, diese Tour sollte man einfach gemacht haben!!
