From there we move on to the peaceful Durban Botanic Gardens founded in 1849, home to of massive trees from Africa, Asia and America and a magnificent orchid house. Now its lunch, and we go "traditional Durban" by tasting a local "bunny chow", traditional take-away food within the Indian community!
