It’s almost time for the annual outbreak of “July Fever”! It is set to reach its peak on the first Saturday of July when the 121st edition of the famous Vodacom Durban July takes place at the Greyville Racecourse.
There’s nothing quite like being there in person: experiencing the sights and sounds, the atmosphere and the angst. More than 55 000 people will wait in anticipation to see which of South Africa’s best thoroughbreds take home the R4,25 million grand prize.
But it’s not all just about the horses. With this year’s theme being: “The Colour of Magic”, it’s also the fashion and entertainment extravaganza of the year – and everybody wants to go.
Whether you choose to take your place among the crowds who line the track, relax in the many restaurant facilities or enjoy the day as a guest in the corporate suites and venues, you’re in for a day of adrenaline and adventure.
Known as “Africa’s Greatest Horseracing Event”, the excitement of the Vodacom Durban July surpasses that of any other event on the African continent. So, make sure you’ve got your tickets booked to avoid the queues on the day. Tickets are available at Computicket for R220. They can be booked in advance, or bought at all the entrances to the Greyville Racecourse on the day. This is one action-packed event you don’t want to miss! While you’re at it, why not treat yourself to luxury self-catering accommodation in Umhlanga, too?
