Be real with us for a second, wouldn’t you rather walk into the office on Monday morning and boast about an experience your friends haven’t done yet?
While there are all the standard things to do in Durban like eating seafood, sunbathing and visiting Ushaka Marine World, take a look at some adventures you may have overlooked. Now’s your chance to create memories that will last forever doing an activity you hardly imagined yourself doing.

1. Mind Your Step Down The Vortex Tunnel
Reckon you could walk through this tunnel without stumbling? The Vortex Tunnel is set in the Gateway Theatre of Shopping and is bound to have you a little confused.

The first of its kind in South Africa, this mind-blowing, spinning tunnel will really test your senses. Try this one-of-a-kind attraction for either a birthday party or a team-building event, or just for a Saturday with a difference. Do you dare enter?
Here’s a taste of what you can expect:
2. The Secret Spot
Have you ever watched a surfing movie and wished you were one of those bleached blonde babes? Learn to surf, or improve your surfing, at the Secret Spot Surf Camp.
Live like the girls of Blue Crush in private chalets, tented units, or a girl’s and boy’s dormitory.
The Secret Spot is situated in “Nature’s Playground” on the Dolphin Coast near Shakas Rock.
3. Big Rush, Big Swing, Big Win
Some days you feel like you are Tarzan, jumping from obstacle to obstacle. Channel your inner Tarzan at the Moses Mabhida Stadium as you jump on pretty much the biggest swing you will ever encounter.
Certified as the ‘World’s Tallest Swing’ by Guinness World Records, since 14 May 2011, this will definitely have your coworkers drooling with envy.
The swing is set at 106m above the World Cup Football pitch with a freefall of 80m and an insane 220m swinging arc.
