Warwick Markets are a place I have wanted to go for a long time, and today I was lucky enough to have Rosemary, a tour guide from the ASIYE ETAFULENI non-profit that runs tours headed by traders themselves. Rosemary was well-versed in the history of the markets and especially about the herbs in the herb market where she and her sister have a stall. She took me through the warren of 9 markets, including the bovine head market where I instantly became a vegetarian. This tour will show you a different side of Durban away from the glitz of the beachfront. Be ready for a sensory overload.…

Warwick Avenue Market is one of Durban's tourist attraction place. You have to visit this place if you are looking for bead work item or curio shopping. The designs are so many that you become confused of choosing the right one .

This was a highlight. On the day I was the only guest which was nice but even in groups it will be great. My guide was Toe (pronounced Too). She was fantastic. She is one of the market traders and can tell you all about the markets and products as you walk. We walked through downtown Durban which I wouldn't recommend visitors do without a guide. The reason I say this is not because of crime but because it can be intimidating if you are not used to the environment. We went to Victoria Market which is a good buying spot, the beadwork market (Fridays only), the lime & impepho market, the muthi market, the fresh produce market, the station market and more. I would do this again I enjoyed it so much. What's nice is that these markets sell mainly to locals so you're not getting the typical tourist experience. I would consider this a must do. Ask for Toe! …

Go and experience the vibrancy of South Africa. You are perfectly safe and the tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable. This shows ubuntu in the true sense where people care and look out for one another. It is a sensory tour not to be missed.
