If you’re looking for African stuff including beads, handcraft and African prints, the Victoria Street Market in Durban is the place to visit!
I’ll be out exploring the Station Drive Precinct, Durban’s first dedicated creative district. It’s home to local businesses, studios, can’t-miss craft food and beverage spots, and hosts a monthly “First Thursdays” event with art, street food, and live music.

During the day, I’ll be checking out the Victoria Street Market, where the melding of Afro-Indian cultures comes to life most vividly. Roaming the bazaar, I can find anything from Indian spices, curry powders, and incense to fresh fish and seafood on the first floor. Afterwards, I’m heading to the KwaMuhle Museum on Bram Fischer Road, which educates visitors on life in Durban from the start of Apartheid to now, discussing the impacts of its harsh systems of urban and labor control, and highlights local art.
