With warm weather all year round, Durban is South Africa’s ultimate playground destination. Discover a relaxed city with great beaches, melting-pot cuisine and endless fun. From the Golden Mile, which stretches along the Durban beachfront to the striking Moses Mabhida Stadium and uShaka Marine World, there’s plenty to explore. Embark on a culinary journey at the many curry, seafood and fusion restaurants in and around the beachfront. Enjoy some retail therapy at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga, the Pavilion in Westville and the Galleria in Amanzimtoti. If you are in the mood for some adventure, the Valley of a Thousand Hills (half an hour inland from Durban) promises authentic experiences of Zulu culture. Deeper into the countryside, the Midlands Meander features an abundance of fresh air and the opportunity to wander through arts, crafts and curiosity stores.
