IIn episode 5 of our Bakkie Stories road-trip through South Africa, we step into another world and get spicy visiting Durban’s buzzing Victoria Street Market. These 100 year old markets are famed for their East meets West produce, with stalls laden with perfectly formed pyramids of jewel-coloured spices. Watch Maya, Alice and Saunders as they explore the market, plus see what they think of the traditional Durban dish, ‘Bunny Chow’, a hollowed out bread roll filled with fragrant and spicy curry. Tasty!

Contrary to these misrepresentations, early colonial accounts portray him as a keen international trader who went out of his way to protect the traders between 1824 and 1828.
