Robben Island 5
Robben Island is the great place to be but I visited ther on the 04/10/13 it was not the 1st time I realised that the tour guide by the name of Zozo that took us though the cell was not good the language is not good he hardly could undrestand him. The bus tour guide we had was not as good as the one we had in 2004 when we visited the Island the tour guide was a lady the driver's name was Koos she (tour guide)was so hursh,not friendly at all not looking to the audience,rushing telling the bus driver that she is tired & generally she was not even interested in waht she was doing. If you can change the tour guides the Island would such a great destiny top want to go to & those years in 2004 when we 1st visited it was mostly the foreingners that was more but now mostly is South Africans...

Durban 8
Beautiful beaches, good surfing/body surfing. Great Indian food. Even under apartheid the people of city mixed freely - very laid back life-style but very humid in summer, which means lotsa ice-cream & beer are essential for good health! Great view of the city from the University on the hill overlooking the Baym and several small & good nature reserves within the city, or within 40-60 minutes drive. Used to be an interesting Shark Research Institute near the beach. 2 good golf courses within the city limits.
