Street S.

Start with an insight into the city's colonial heritage at the Elephant House, Durban's oldest standing home. Head out the to Bhambayi area to walk on the original wooden floors of the now revamped Mahatma Gandhi museum. Pay your respects to the eminent Dr. John Dube at Ohlange High School, the place where Nelson Mandela cast his vote his South Africa's long awaited first democratic elections.

Cross into the Mzinyathi area and learn about the spiritual significance of its namesake waterfall. Knock back quarts (750ml) of beer along with locals outside a "spaza shop" before sharing a "shisanyama" lunch at our favourite tavern. Engage with vendors outside KwaMashu station and learn about their wares. End the trip with a visit to a family home in K Section, leaving with a personal insight into township life.

Shisanyama lunch, 500ml bottled water, transport, Street Scene Guide.

Street S.

Street Scene isn't your average tour company. We are all about exploring our city of Durban, the surrounding province of Kwazulu Natal and indeed South Africa through the eyes of a local without the stereotypical nonsense. We dont want to show you aquariums and take you on safaris. There are more than enough people doing that. We want to help you meet South Africa. To get in touch with a culture. To taste the food. To go where we go and come out the other side feeling more like a resident than a tourist. We have an amazing array of tours on offer but also love to customise and experience to meet your needs.
