21]. Visit the Old Fort on Fort Road.
The original fort was constructed of mud in 1842 by troops under Captain Thomas Smith.   The garrison was besieged for 34 days by the Boers, resulting in the famous ride to Grahamstown by Dick King and Ndongeni Ka Xoki. In 1858 the facilities were expanded to include an armoury and barracks, and troops remained in occupation until the end of the century.
22]. Visit the Amanzimtoti Bird Sanctuary.
The sanctuary consists of a large expanse of open water surrounded by rolling lawns and gardens on one end, and indigenous riverine forest on the other. An easy half-hour self-guided trail winds itself through the forest and is a haven for birdlife. From any of the three bird hides one has an opportunity of seeing many of the 150 bird species in the sanctuary, such as resident Spurwing Geese, White Faced Duck, Greenback Heron, Giant Kingfisher and Hamperkop.
23]. Support the Natal Sharks.
Buy a Sharks sticker for your car at The Shark Tank shop in the ABSA Stadium.
24]. Swim in the sea.
Nothing beats a swim in the sea, especially the temperate Indian Ocean. Durbans beaches have shark nets so there is no need to check for fins!
25]. Buy biltong - a South African favourite.
Visit Mr Mozzies Butchery on Argyle Road for the best biltong in Durban.
26]. Visit the Addington Hospital Centenary Museum.
The Museum has a wide range of exhibits relating to medicine and nursing history.
27]. Spend the day at the Paradise Valley Nature Reserve.
The Paradise Valley waterfall is one of the most beautiful spots in the Durban district.  There are several good walks, one of which runs alongside the river to the waterfall.  Picnic sites, public toilets, braai facilities, a car park and visitors centre are all available.  Open daily from 7am to 5pm.
28]. Visit the Bellaire Railway Station.
The old station was built from 1876-1878 as one of the first five stations built by the Natal Government Railways.  The present station was built in 1900 and was declared a national monument in 1989.  The station is located on Sarnia Road.
29]. Spend the day at Hazlemere Dam.
Enjoy a day of swimming and braaing in the sun at Hazlemere Dam.
30]. Enjoy a few hours at the Durban Beach Festival.
With shopping, concerts and sporting events on the agenda, there is something for everyone.
