Durban in detail

Sat upon yellow sands, Durban is a brilliant waterfront city with all the modern attractions of a seaside resort; from stylish hotels to beachside bars, grand colonial architecture, such as the Old Courthouse, to the funky and relaxed suburb of Glenwood.

There’s plenty to keep Durban visitors entertained. Start your trip with a visit to the KwaMuhle Museum to learn about South Africa’s complex history. Art enthusiasts can enjoy the works at the Kwazulu Natal Society of Arts gallery and the cities contemporary Art Gallery with its rotating temporary exhibits. The uShaka Marine World is another must-see attraction of the area; it’s one of the world’s biggest aquariums and home to sharks, dolphins, seals and plenty of beautiful fish.

Perhaps you’d rather just unwind beneath the glorious sunshine on the Durban beachfront. You’ll find 6km’s of welcoming waters in which to take a dip or try your hand at surfing. Don’t forget to feast into the local delicacies on your stay; try the Bunny chow, a hot curry served in a hollowed chunk of bread.
