Things to do with Kids in Durban under R 100.00 2019
10 Activities and Excursions for Families and Kids in Durban under R 100.00
One of our mottos here at Things to do with Kids is that we should invest in quality family time, creating memories, rather than buying endless toys and things in an attempt to keep the kids entertained while we keep ourselves busy with other things. The reality, however, is that taking part in certain family-friendly excursions does not always suit our budgets. We have therefore put together a guide to 10 affordable activities and excursions to do with the kids in and around Durban.
