WHAT WE STAND UP FOR IS WHO WE ARE

 

BE UNCONVENTIONAL

Who are we?

A bunch of public spirited Durbanites from diverse backgrounds eagerly redefining how travellers experience eThekwini / Durban and the Greater KwaZulu Natal area. Our sensitivity to the city is central to how we impact the people and nurture the development of tourism in our part of the country.

Our goal

With a myriad of passionate creatives tirelessly breathing life into the city, we've made it our goal to synthesise their work into tourism experiences in the hope to offer them market access and thereby contributing to their sustainability. Ultimately our goal is to create more jobs within KwaZulu Natal.

We Care.

 

GIVING BACK

Rhinos.

When those we love are threatened, we take it personally. By booking a transfer with Wild Routes you will be automatically contributing towards this inspiring programme. Really! How is that? Well we decided to donate 2% from every transfer booked with us to Rhinos Without Borders.

HIV/AIDS.

While the AIDS epidemic is falling out of focus in the Europe and the Americas, funding is drying up in affected areas like Lesotho and Swaziland. We're currently looking for a responsible partner to help us contribute towards gaps in funding and resources in these areas in the shadows.

DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT, TAKE THEIRS

 
 
 

“The tour was specifically tailored to my interests -- history, urban architecture, race relations -- and Thabo and Justin spent hours with me discussing, commenting, expanding on how the city was and is. We visited Gandhi's first ashram, the grave/home of the first president of the ANC, the harbour and inner city, the stadium (for an exhibition of Indians who participated in the struggle against apartheid), among other places. Not to be forgotten was lunch at Roti and Chai. I had a terrific time and learned a huge amount. Highly recommended.”
