Namibia Invades Durban July

Durban July is no doubt one of the biggest events on the African calendar. It is a South African thoroughbred horse race held annually on the first Saturday of July since 1897 at Greyville Racecourse in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

The excitement of Durban July Day surpasses that of any other event on the African continent. 56,000 people are expected at Greyville to witness South Africa’s best thoroughbred’s storm down the home straight to the finish.

With this said, entrepreneur couple Natalia and Dokkies Schmidt who are frequent Durban July goers decided to give Namibians an opportunity to experience Africa’s, Racing Jewel. They have partnered up with Eyandini and other well-placed establishments to give well-placed packages for Namibians to buy and attend not only Durban July but other activities throughout the weekend in Durban.

“It is the biggest event in the entertainment calendar and we want Namibians to experience it. There are two packages. One is N$ 15 000 including accommodation, return flight to Durban with Air Namibia, pre-party, all general access on 6 to 7 July whilst the second package is N$ 25 000 which includes access to so much more like the after party. It will be a last,” said Kalistu Mukoroli.

The organizers say the interest from Namibians is great and they are looking at taking at least 20 to 50 people this time around. All payments need to be done by mid-June for the last touches and finalization. The organizers and faces of Namibia Invades Durban July including singer and personality Yessonia also took a trip to Durban to ensure all is in order and indeed it is.

“This is the first time we have this kind of opportunity for Namibians to attend a whole weekend of back to back events. Another thing with Namibia Invades Durban July is the fact that people pay a once off event which overs for everything. The interest is pretty high and we are happy with the responses we are getting from the public,” he said.
