Most visitors intend to get to the beautiful warm beaches as soon as possible, as Durban is all about relaxing, with the wonderful climate and the sea never under 20 degrees. The beaches have shark nets to ensure safe swimming and are watched by life guards.

The Golden Mile along the Durban beachfront is lined with multi-story hotels, restaurants, pubs and clubs.There is a vibrant night life in Durban, and also the Suncoast Casino for gambling.

Boat cruises go around the harbour every day, and fun river trips are available too.

The Umgeni River Bird Park in an old converted quarry, with huge walk through aviaries, thousands of birds, and waterfalls, is also fascinating for children to visit.

There are many Golf courses in Durban, with at least 10 nearby clubs. The lush vegetation, with its profusion of indigenous and exotic trees and flowering shrubs, is a great environment for golf courses.

Nature reserves, parks and gardens are all across the city. The Durban Botanical Gardens and the enchanted Makaranga gardens in Kloof are definitely worth visiting.

Transport

Durban has an excellent freeway network and is about 35kms from King Shaka International Airport. Be prepared however, as the driving is wild. There is also the Rickshaw, or the City Tour Bus for touring around the city.

It is only about 30 minutes drive to the Valley of a Thousand Hills, and there are more scenic drives up both the north and south coast.The south leads to the Sapphire coast, 40 kms of lush coastal forest and glorious golden beaches, and north to Umhlanga and the Sugar coast.

There are several game reserves to drive to from Durban and also 2 World Heritage sites - the St Lucia Wetlands and the Drakensberg Mountains.

The N3 leads directly to Johannesburg.

Did you know

Durban began as a British colonial outpost in 1824 when a contingent of 25 soldiers sailed into the bay. A beautiful sight met them as they sailed into the harbour, a paradise with birds and wild life, a heavenly coastline with lush tropical vegetation, and long bronze beaches overlooking the sea.

A few more settlers arrived in 1835 and rather valiantly announced they were going to build a town. They named it Durban after Sir Ben D'urban, the Governor of the Cape then, who was recalled shortly afterwards for rather anti social behaviour, having been a soldier too long. He never saw Durban and probably didn't know it was named after him anyway.

Durban is important architecturally as it has one of the largest number of Art Deco buildings in the world. Along the harbour are many Victorian warehouses with fine architectural detailing.

The Durban Municipality is embarking upon a huge renewal program of Durban City "to restore it to its former glory" as it is so important to international tourism.
