Area Information

Tourists from all over the world have been coming to Durban for more than half a century, attracted mainly by the city’s famous beaches and the all year-round sunshine.

It is a centre of world class sport and hosts major international events. It is a shopper’s paradise with sophisticated shopping malls and precincts, craft markets and street bazaars. It is an entertainment and hospitality hub with a bustling commercial and manufacturing centre connected to the business capitals of the world, and is built around one of the busiest ports in Africa.

Durban’s people are friendly and laid-back, and reflect a rich cultural diversity that includes African, Eastern and Western influences.

Perhaps it’s this blend of culture, art and environment that makes Durban so unique. There’s nowhere else quite like it.

There is an abundance of breathtaking scenery just beyond the city. To the north lies the bustling coastal town of Umhlanga, packed with hotels, restaurants and beautiful beaches. To the south is the Sapphire Coast, an endless stretch of sub-tropical paradise dotted with holiday towns. To the west lies the verdant Valley of 1000 Hills with its nature reserves and cultural villages. A little further afield, the Big 5 game reserves are just a few hours’ drive away, while to the west the mighty Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park – a World Heritage Site – beckons.
