Dear Umgeni Steam team We undertook the train ride on the 27th October from Kloof to Inchanga and return. It was a well organized event with all the staff being welcoming and we as a family had such a great time. A big thank you to all the staff from Umgeni Steam.
A great experience! Something unique and fun to do in Durban. Make sure to take a light jacket as the train can get a bit breezy with everyone’s windows open.
