The largest port city in South Africa, Durban, is busy, vibrant and one of the continent's most popular tourist destinations.​

Durban is blessed with balmy weather all year round and has an incredible stretch of beach, the Golden Mile, which boasts wonderful views of the idyllic Indian Ocean and many restaurants and bars to enjoy.[ReadMoreMob] This paradise offer an amazing contrast of cosmopolitan city life with a close proximity to the Valley of a Thousand Hills, where the Zulu drum still beats.

The regeneration of the waterfront area has helped shake off the city’s sleazy image and has given it a new confidence and ambition. This seafront promenade runs from uShaka Marine World and Aquarium to the futuristic Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Durban is also a shopper's paradise with quality shopping malls, craft markets and street bazaars. The fascinating Afro-Indian culture is very evident in the city, and much of the local cuisine has an Indian influence.
