What to do in Durban


It┬┤s 10 minutes to the Beachfront in town. And 15 Minutes to Umhlanga with its beautiful beaches. Just a few minutes drive, and nature┬┤s paradise is yours.




Durban is one of the biggest cities in South Africa, rich with indian culture (weird right?!) and has many bars and lots of activities to offer.




The province Kwazulu-Natal is the origin of the Zulu culture. In this part of South Africa you will have the chance to discover this extraordinary and fascinating tribe.
