      Durban point Gondola
      Best experience ever coupled with a picnic treat. Our gondolier was fun to ride with as he seemed experienced due to the way he was controlling the gondola and very talkative as well. The was a photographer in house and made things easier for us. Much appreciated.

      Highly reccomended
      We went for our 1 year anniversary, 40mins of tranquility on the water at sunset, the guide was helpful taking many photos for us, the boats are stable, safe and comfortable, and overall the whole experience was wonderful. Definitely doing that again!

      Rain and all
      Although it began raining, Percy our gondolier gave us the option of postponing until another day but we were there so decided to do it. What a fun time. We would definitely do it again. Picnic basket was thoughtful and we stopped under the bridge to enjoy it,

      Magical Gondola Ride
      What a lovely experience! We bought a voucher and took the kids for a magical gondola ride. It was a sunny Durban day and the 20 minute gondola ride was perfect. The canals are beautiful and really gave us a different view of Durban. They made it extra special by showing the children a floating bottle in the water filled with sweets for them. Wow that made their day. Definitely a must when in Durban.

      Awesome Experience
      The trip doesn’t offer much to see except other holiday apartments, but offers relaxation and tranquility while the guide slowly steers you around in the Gondola. The guide was friendly and chatty. This ride is perfect if you just want to relax.

      A Lot Cheaper than Venice
      Russ Iz and self were staying in the Point Waterfront apartments overlooking the canal last weekend; below our balcony we could see the motor driven gondolas pottering along. Next day we strolled up the canal to ticketing at Zulu Safaris up the steps from the canal on the eastern side of the uShaka Mariine complex and bought our ride. Straight down and practically, straight on. Very pleasant, peaceful and rather unusual.

      Heartfelt Service
      Thank you to Bongani who steered our Gondola for the compassionate way in which he served us. The setup was truly well done and loved the pictures sent to us. It really was special and memorable in being a moment blessed by God. Thank you!

      Floating on water with ease, as the night lights and sounds goes by is a very satisfying and relaxed.

      Wonderful ride
      This is our first time in Africa/Durban, and we wanted to do something different. This was great! Albeit a little murky at the beginning of the ride (most likely due to it being still water), the ride featured wonderful views of the city. Our "captain" was friendly and engaging and offered to take pics of us which was nice. Would recommend to friends but take the night ride next time.

      They went above and beyond!
      What an absolutely lovely experience!!!! From the first enquiry, Kim was so incredibly helpful and so quick with the responses. I was organizing my best friend's bachelorette and kept having people changing their minds and so I had to adjust the booking a few times but Kim was so great about it. Then on the day we were running a full 20 mins late and I phoned her to let her know (literally as we were already supposed to be there) and she arranged it so that we could still get the full time and again was just brilliant! The ride itself was just so lovely and peaceful, the moon was nearly full and our Gondolier was so sweet and cheerful and even sang Shosholoza with us. This was after he had to wait for us for over 20 minutes. He even steered us over to rescue a baby duck that almost got swept away. I really think that Kim and her team went above and beyond with the whole experience especially with all the changes and everything I threw at her and the whole party enjoyed it so much and realllllly needed that amidst the storm of wedding stress. Thank you again for such brilliant service and a truly lovely memory!

    Did not meet our expectations 😢. It's not worth the cost. The gondolier was very nice, accommodative, and loves his job however, the experience was not worthwhile.

    What an amazing experience at the heart of the city. It’s such bliss and feels much longer than 30 mins. I highly recommend it. I’d love to return in the evening for a different experience.

    I’d recommend calling the reservation number after booking on TripAdvisor to confirm the booking as there’s a delay on when it becomes visible to the agents.

    we booked the magical night ride on the 11th November 2018, however we had free time so we changed our slot with the helpful assistance of the staff. booking online was efficient and payment was safe with credit card. The ride itself was very sombre so was the surroundings. If one wishes to do something different, like message in a bottle ect then I'd say go for it, otherwise no. Gondola belong to Venice and nothing and no body will make justice to it or even close. we enjoyed the ride though.

    Dear Parisqueen2015 We are so happy to read that you enjoyed the ride and hope you will be returning soon to experience the different rides we have to offer such as the picnic ride and possibly even a Deluxe Ride with a live musician to serenade you and that someone special in your life. Couldn't agree more, the gondolas of Venice are an experience unmatched but this is a little bit of that magic under an African sky... Zulumoon... Thank you for your review and again, hope to see you soon on one of our rides. Kindest Regards Kim
