Trip Summary

Start with a visit to Cato Manor, the first area from which Africans and Indians were forcibly removed and relocated to “Townships” in the early 1960s. We continue towards KwaMashu, Durban’s oldest township that was created to accommodate the mass resettlement of Africans from Cato Manor. We visit the Men’s hostel area, originally created to accommodate single migrant workers but nowadays home to families in newly constructed flats amongst the older buildings. One of the Royal residences of the Zulu King is also situated here. We stop in one of the other Township sections and take a short walk. We also stop at a local shebeen for a traditional shisanyama lunch. Our journey continues inland to the local settlement of Inanda, which is steeped in history and culture. Time permitting, we visit the Ohlange Institute, where President Mandela cast his vote in South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994; the Phoenix settlement where Mahatma Gandhi developed his philosophy of passive resistance and the Inanda Seminary, one of the oldest African private schools for girls, established in 1869. We end the day with a visit to Ebuhleni for a brief introduction to the religious world and the theosophy of the Shembe Church.
