The Great Southern Route : 2013 - 2014
GSR | 271 Georgia cruised to Jeffreys Bay with crew only and they surfed the famous Jeffreys Bay breaks which was a highlight and thoroughly enjoyed by all who did so. They then stopped in Durbin after a quick passage from Cape Town. Situated strategically on the south eastern tip of Africa, Durban is Africa’s premier port, serving a host of commercial and non commercial traffic. It is the gateway to South Africa’s commerce and also feeds traffic to many landlocked countries. Durban is a regular port of call for traffic between east and west and offers a host of services such as repair yards, dry docks, bunkering and provisioning. Johannesburg International Airport plays host to most of the international airlines and allows for easy access to Durban for crew transfers. Durban’s tropical climate sets the scene for a holiday atmosphere in a vibrant city with an estimated population of two million and is a premier holiday destination for both local and international holiday makers. A true mix of cultures, including African, Indian, Muslim and European make for the rich diversity, with first class hotels, infrastructure and beaches and a short distance to some of the best game viewing private parks and other spectacular tourist attractions in the country.
