  • Awesome experience. Needs prior booking. Luck plays its part if u want to travel during high winds. Day Rides,Romantic Night Rides, Picnics, U also get message in a Bottle floating on the water.
  • Never thought the gondola ride would be so peaceful. Loved it. If you are in Durban, try this out if you want to just relax and take in the surroundings. Also, a side note. The river that we were on had a viewing area of baby sharks.
  • A great big thank you to the management team at the Gondolas as they have not only responded and made contact but have compensated for the situation and disappointment we endured. not on the 16th as originally planned but amends none the less. Thank you and good luck for your future. Sorry can't do a minus star rating or I would! VERY VERY disappointing. Staff not helpful at all just shrug shoulders and unfairness to the max. It is my daughter's 16th birthday and we are due for a "Surprise" Gondola ride..NOT. earlier in the week when I called the lady assured me not to stress there is ALWAYS availability and I CAN book at the kiosk and close at 18:30 but alas this was not the case as "there is fighting and we can't help you cause there plenty of people" and they have been told not to send anymore people to the gondolas as its full and closed! Lies as when we walked past no cue and a gondolas rests in bay unused!! Disgusting honestly that's it!!! no explanation nothing, disappointing. NEVER EVER again and not for my lodge guests or anyone will I recommend this total disappointing experience. as for the guy there he was so busy talking and laughing on his mobile that he couldn't be bothered.
  • Our gondola ride with Bongani was excellent! The office was a bit unwelcoming though. However, our experience on the ride was relaxing and therapeutic with a picnic basket filled with goodies.
  • I booked an evening ride for my wedding anniversary and I was not disappointed. Although I was a few minutes late and the weather was not that good , our gondolier was extremely friendly and willing to go out in the rain. An unforgettable and romantic experience , the highlight of the ride is when your loved one finds a bottle floating in the lake with a personalised message for them in it(all arranged by zulumoon). Would definitely recommend the evening cruise for couples one of the best experiences in Durban.
