About Durban Day Safaris
Travel in and around Durban City with experienced and knowledgeable guides. We offer Durban Safaris to Big5 Game Reserves, Durban City Tours, Township Tours, Zulu Cultural Experiences and more. We will pick you up from anywhere in Durban. Durban Day and overnight safaris to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve are a favorite with local and international guests. Get up close to Africa's Big5 in one the oldest and most scenic Game Reserves in Africa. For those wanting a safari experience closer to Durban, Tala Private Game Reserve is very popular. Just 40 minutes from the city, this little jewel is a bird lovers paradise. Tala is also home to big game species such as, Rhino, Giraffe, Hippo and Zebra. A Zulu cultural experience is a must when visiting the Kingdom Of The Zulu. Shakaland provides the perfect experience for guests wanting to get a proper understanding and feel for Zulu culture and tradition.A half day tour of Durban City will give one a look into what makes this city tick. Visit landmarks such as The Moses Mabhida Stadium, The Presidents House, Suncoast Casino and Wilson's Warf. Included in this tour is a Harbor cruise or Skycar trip over the stadium. Durban safaris and tours with the top tour provider in Durban.
