THE Mystery Ghost Bus returns to Durban for one night only this year, on 4 August, and this time promises an ending in an eerie historical cemetery.
One of the highlights of the tour is no doubt the famous ‘Spookhouse’ (as it is known to locals) of Musgrave Road.
There are also some pub stops to calm one’s nerves and indulge in ‘spirits’ of another sort, with the other off-the-bus stops including the famous poltergeist house of Campbell Road, and of course at the very end of the tour, the cemetery.

Other haunted buildings include ‘The Playhouse’, which has a phantom lurking under the stage, as witnessed by none other than well-known actor Joseph Clark; Durban Boys’ High with its tragic tale of the science master who died after an explosion; the sad tale of the little boy who committed suicide at Victoria Mansions; the diabolical tale of South Africa’s most famous poison murderess, Daisy de Melker, at the old Berea Nursing Home; the well-known phantom hitchhiker who is the young Indian girl known as ‘Highway Sheila’; and many more spooky tales & venues.
More details can be found on the website at www.MysteryGhostBus.co.za at which you also do your bookings at R 369 per person. The tour runs from 7pm to just after midnight (of course), and guests are asked to bring torches, cameras, flat walking shoes and ‘pub & grub’ money.
