Durban : Segway, Stadium tour and Ushaka marine park...Day 9

After a huge electrical storm during the night we woke to a bright, humid day. We made our way over to the beautiful Moses  Mabhida stadium where we decided to go on a Segway tour. 

We started off with a short training session with our guide, Shaun. We the set off on our tour along the seafront  promenade passing sand sculptures and weaving in and out of the walkers and cyclists. We drove the Segways onto one of the piers where we took a break and saw some great views of the City skyline and also the passing surfers. This was the first time either of us had used a Segway and we had a blast. 

We the sat down for a coffee before doing the guided tour of the stadium, we were even allowed on the grass pitch before visiting the dressing rooms and the Presidential suite. 

After lunch we made our way over to the Ushaka marine World, where they have a superb aquarium  with a variety  of fish, Ray’s, turtles and a huge tank full of sharks. We finished our visit off at the dolphin show, although not a fan of captive animal shows, you cannot be impressed at their agility.
