Just a six hour drive from Johannesburg, Durban is one of the most popular holiday destinations in South Africa, and with good reason. Most people visit for the warm, Indian Ocean beaches and laid back vibe, but there’s so much more to the city. With tons of activities, great shopping, endless entertainment, and an exciting food scene, Durban has it all. You have four basic options for getting there: driving, flying, taking a bus, or taking a train.
If you’re travelling between Rabat and Fes, Meknes and Volubilis are great pit-stops on your journey. Meknes is one of Morocco’s Imperial Cities, surrounded by 40km of defensive walls and grand gateways, and makes for an interesting detour.
Rabat is the capital of Morocco, and lies along the Atlantic coast. It doesn’t often come up on most peoples’ Moroccan itinerary, and after visiting we can see why. Compared to other cities, Rabat is hardly memorable. However, we visited as part of our guided tour and did see some things of interest.
