• Durban, South Africa offers adventure

    2010-06-29

    As the World Cup winds down, the spotlight might remain on some of South Africa's famed cities. Durban, in the KwaZulu-Natal region, is one such place. Those who love adventure travel will enjoy the many activities that the region and city offer.

    Just east of Durban lies Drakensburg Park, a UNESCO world heritage mountain range that is the highest in Africa after Kilimanjaro. Visitors might be surprised by how quickly the terrain changes from Durban's beautiful beaches to Drakensburg rockier terrain, but this variety only serves to allow travelers to hit both the beach and mountains in the same day.

    River rafting is also a popular activity in the area, especially on the challenging Thukela river.

    The area isn't just home to adventure travel. KwaZulu-Natal has a long history. Vacationers may want to head to the Battlefields area, where they can visit two museums dedicated to a battle between the Zulus and Europeans- one museum tells the colonist's side of the story, while the other commemorates the natives.
