For the people, by the people!

One thing that sets Durban aside from the rest is that we have this beautifully redeveloped beachfront and promenade to enjoy everyday. And boy, do we make use of it.

The really cool thing is that the promenade connects directly to the People’s Park precinct, which holds not only a magnificent track & field a...

Either way, there’s no need hunting the...
