Durban still worth a visit?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I, retireees, will be driving from Kruger down highway 2 along the coast this August. The itinerary I planned from a 5 year old Frommers and a road map included two nights in Durban, so we could visit some galleries and do some tourist stuff there. But a friend on a SA tour who visited there this fall said she hated Durban, that there was nothing to do, that she couldn't wait to leave. And when I got my updated Frommer's guide, I noticed several attractions had lost a "star" in their ratings.
So-o-o, should I spend that day somewhere else earlier or later on the journey along highway 2? We are spending 2-3 days at the St Lucia, Hluhluwe Umfolozi area. Thanks for any advice.
