The Valley of a 1000 Hills
Beyond the bounds of the world class beaches of South Africa’s Playground (as the city of Durban is affectionately known), its vibrant night life and unique foodways, there are other amazing places to visit in the Valley of 1000 Hills, only 30 minutes away from Durban City centre.
Experience both traditional and modern world renown Zulu culture, from customs to beliefs within urban to peri-urban, and rural to semi-rural settings. Enjoy a visit to the Sangoma (traditional healer/fortune teller), local curio shops for souvenirs, safari and reptile park experience and talk with village elders.
Enjoy guided or self-guided tours are on offer for hiking, canoeing, fishing, rock climbing, horse riding, quad and mountain biking.
Every Saturday morning the local ‘Farmers market’ takes place and is a must for any visitor. Art galleries, botanical gardens, museums, craft markets, micro-breweries and a wealth of history of the region are scattered around the area. On certain Sundays, one can take a trip back in time on one of the last remaining “Puffing Billy’s” that puffs through the Thousand Hills.
