One of South Africa’s most popular summer holiday destinations, Durban lies at the heart of the east coast and is the ideal springboard from which to access the many attractions of KwaZulu Natal Province. Originally built as a colonial port, Durban has since grown into a flourishing multi-cultural city, most noted for its large Indian and Zulu populations.
In 1994, Inanda’s outlook changed as democracy was born in South Africa. To mark the occasion, Nelson Mandela cast his vote in this historic election at Inanda’s Ohlange Institute, fitting given that the first-ever president of the African National Congress (ANC), Dr. John L. Dube, established this school in 1901. It’s this wealth of history that you can explore on the Inanda Heritage Route. The trail starts in Phoenix Settlement, established in 1904 by Gandhi. Here you can see Gandhi’s house, and his International Printing Press and Museum. Next it moves on to the Ohlange Institute, Dube’s house – a national monument – and his grave.
