5 Tips to Rediscover Durban Safely under Level 3
The 2020 Summer Festive Season might be turning out a little differently for us all under Advanced Level 3 restrictions, but eThekwini Municipality believes Durban is well geared to keep the holiday break safe and memorable.
There are numerous appealing tourism and leisure options in and around the City, most of which allow holidaymakers to minimise exposure to the 3 Cs – closed spaces, crowds and close contact.
Durban Tourism has the following tips to ensure you get the most of your Durban holiday experience:
Be an explorer and venture out to Durban’s many outdoor destinations. Sample the city’s fresh air, wide open spaces, great weather and stunning nature and wildlife areas – from Phezulu Safari Park and Giba Gorge Mountain Park in the West to Sugar Rush Park on the North Coast.
For a rich tapestry of creations from the city’s talented creatives and makers, be sure to visit Durban’s wide variety of museums and art galleries. Here, you can acquire the stunning handiwork of some of Durban’s talented emerging or established local artists.
Durban has an array of mouth-watering cuisine that sets its apart from any other city in South Africa. Wherever you are – North Coast, South Coast, Central or West of the City, there are restaurants with the space and comfort you need to enjoy a meal with peace of mind at this time.
Tourism establishments have implemented strict health and safety measures aligned with guidelines from the Department of Health, the National Institute for Communicable Disease (NICD), the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA), World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and World Health Organization (WHO), as well as health and safety regulations.
These include round-the-clock cleaning, reconfiguring facilities to comply with social distancing requirements, temperature checks, complimentary hand washing and sanitising at strategic high-touch points. Also available are contactless payment methods, helpful signage and health screening procedures for patrons, employees, suppliers and more.
So, if you’re still keen for some safe and enjoyable days out this holiday, then observe all Covid-19 Advanced Level 3 protocols – don your masks (no masks, no entry!), sanitise, social distance and respect the curfew.
