There is a place in Africa where the wild elephants still roam. The legendary Ivory Route where the great tuskers still tramp their ancient pathways through dense sand-forest and tall yellow grass. This is Tembe Elephant Park, a 300 square kilometre reserve between Zululand and Mozambique, home to Africa's largest elephants as well as one of the smallest antelope, the suni.

The Big Five also find their home here, the lion, leopard, black and white rhino and buffalo, as well as more than 340 bird species and a myriad of other animals and plants. It is a world of hot silence and white sand, where the busy modern world ceases to exist and only the rising and setting of the sun marks the passage of time. It is also the ancestral home of the Tembe people, who co-own and manage Tembe Safari Lodge. A place of warm African hospitality, classic safari food and world class personal service. This is where you will find the Africa of story and legend, of adventure and myth.

Tembe Safari Lodge is unique; it is the only community owned full service game lodge inside a proclaimed game reserve. In Tembe terms, this means that the lodge is right in the middle of unspoiled bush, with the trees and grasses of old Africa nestling right up against your tent. There are more than 340 bird species to be spotted, many from your own verandah.

The My City bus service with a day pass ticket,that is bought once per day to be used throughout the day with different stops, on and off the bus. We went to different venues and places of interest throughout the day for the entire duration of the tour.

We went to the harbour & took a cruise. We ate tasty fish & chips at the restaurant close to the OR Tambo Drive next to the bus stop. I recommend everyone going to Durban to go buy at fish & chips.
