While MaNtuli is trying to sell off her furniture to #PayBackTheMoney, her neighbours  Big Boy and Leshole were living their best lives in Durban.

Fans of Skeem Saam first heard about the trip last week but it almost didn't happen when Big Boy seemed to have lost his ID. The way everyone was mourning, it was like a funeral.

You see, Big Boy and his son never have nice things so viewers thought this was another case of bad luck being their bestie.

Anyways, the pair finally got it all sorted and headed to Durban for their vacay and everyone could breath a sigh of relief.

Actor Thabo Mkhabela, who plays the role of Leshole on the show told TshisaLIVE that it was great to see his character get a break.

"After everything that has happened to him, it was nice for something good to happen to him. I think it was the perfect idea in the perfect place (Durban) and we had fun shooting it. We know that people in Durban love our characters so to go there was very special for them."

He said that fans could expect some crazy adventures during the pair's trip.

"Big Boy is Big Boy and Leshole is Leshole. They are the same wherever they go. I think people will have fun with them as they go around the area and see the sea. It will be fun for them (the audience)," he added.

Meanwhile the streets were flooded with hilarious memes and messages about the trip, calling it the greatest moment in Skeem Saam history.

There was no shortage of people willing to welcome them to Durban and give them suggestions on where to go.
