shore excursions

my wife & I will be arriving by cruise ship in Richards bay on Jan 3 at 11am departing at 8pm. we have been there before & did the game reserve. Is there anything else to do around the area in that time?

We will be arriving in Durban on Jan. 4 from 8am-3pm. We have also been to Durban. Is there anything interesting that you can suggest?

I don't think there are a lot of touristy attractions in RB. We stayed one night in September but we had to go to the big shopping mall to get sim cards. We then took a drive to the to the marina and had lunch there. You could hire a car in RB and drive 78 kms on the N2 to St Lucia wetlands and do the lake cruise on Lake St Lucia, It is about an hour if I recall. You will see hippos crocs, birds etc. then take a drive further along to Cape Vidal and the town of St Lucia.

Hello and if you were taken to a game reserve by a tour company then contact them again and as above visit St Lucia and or Cape Vidal. You can also Try Advantage Tours as they offer various excursions from St Lucia & Durban. Also in Durban there is the Natal Sharks Board, which I have net yet visited, but its meant to be good and informative. Otherwise just stroll on the Durban Golden mile and beach, take a rickshaw ride, and eat a bunny chow.
