    Today we left the hotel and had a quick tour of Durban and then visited the Indian market which cost a few rand! Great market for traditional Zulu wares and Indian spices. Now I need more cash.

    On the bus and a drive out of Durban north to meet our boat for the river cruise. This was a long drive but necessary to get us into the area ...
