Durban

Things to do - general

 

 

Durban, recent recipient of a number of international accolades, is a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city and the country’s most popular leisure tourism destination. With mild winters, hot summers and golden beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, the city is a melting pot of cultural diversity, year round sunshine and scenic beauty.

Accommodation in Durban is of a high standard, ranging from 4-5 star beachfront hotels and trendy boutique hotels, to welcoming B&Bs, backpacker hostels and self-catering apartments.

Visiting a city as diverse as Durban and managing to see all it offers is no easy task, but not to be missed attractions include a visit to uShaka Marine World, a trip up the Sky Car at the iconic Moses Mabhida Stadium, a ride on a beachfront rickshaw, and a visit to the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board, the only one of its kind in the world. Enjoy world-class diving at Aliwal Shoal or Protea Banks, if that¹s your thing, or take a leisurely stroll through the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Play a round of golf at a selection of world-class city courses.

Modern shopping centers, art and craft markets, museums and art galleries make up a rich tapestry of options available to visitors. Diners can choose from a tantalizing selection of cuisine at local restaurants and the finest curries outside of India.

Durban¹s nightlife offers elegant lounges, funky taverns and local theatre and live music at trendy clubs and pubs.
