Durban Natural Science Museum

The Durban Natural Science Museum is of the old school of museums, with diorama displays and stuffed specimens of extinct animals rather than interactive experiences. There's a dusty replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, and plasma screens showing natural history scenery. Still, the museum is incredibly popular with local families and school groups, attracting up to 300,000 visitors annually. It's a great alternative for kids to visit while adults take in the exhibits at the upstairs Durban Art Gallery. Located in the beautiful City Hall, the museum is on a main bus and taxi route. The area is busy during the day, and tourists should take care not to show expensive cameras and cell phones that attract pickpockets.

South Africa has 11 official languages, including Afrikaans, English, Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho. English is widely spoken.


South Africa's currency is the Rand (ZAR), which is divided into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and the larger hotels. ATMs are widely available (there is a daily limit for cash withdrawals) and major international credit cards are widely accepted, except in petrol stations where cash is required. Visitors should be vigilant when drawing cash from ATMs, as con artists are known to operate there. Travellers cheques and some foreign currencies are accepted at larger hotels and shops, but commission is charged, otherwise all commercial banks will exchange them.
