Banana Express, Port Shepstone (Portshepstone) to Harding, South Coast, Kwa-Zulu Natal.

The Banana Express steam train meanders over the lands of six Zulu Chiefs on a scenic 122-km route from Port Shepstone to Harding. The line was originally built to transport sugar and timber from the hinterland to the coast but was later adapted to take passengers and tourists. The train follows the coast for a while before heading inland through indigenous forests, cane fields and past rural Zulu villages to Izotsha and Paddock, which is famous for its tea.  Tour operators offer extended tours through Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve, linking with the train at Paddock Station. Port Shepstone is on the N2 south of Durban, which is at the intersection of the N2 with the N3. AOBanana
