Durban is the third largest city in South Africa and it is situated on the east coast. The city's beach-front location makes it an attractive tourist destination with several kilometres of golden sands known as 'The Golden Mile' within its limits. Surfers and sun seekers flock to the sands during peak season and a multitude of costal restaurants and bars have grown up around the tourist trade. Durban's common languages are Zulu and English. A smattering of Art Deco and colonial architecture ensure that the city retains a sophisticated appearance.

When to go to Durban

High season in Durban is December to January when summer heat creates the perfect conditions for days at the beach. Christmas is particularly packed bringing high prices and big crowds. The weather stays warm and mild throughout autumn, winter and spring so visit between April and October for cheaper flights and a much quieter beach.

What to See in Durban

The Golden Mile is the city's biggest tourist attraction. Sunbathe and sip cocktails or ice cold beer at one of the many beach bars. Good waves present the perfect opportunity for you to brush up on your surfing skills, although you should be aware that sharks have been spotted in the area. For insight into Natal and Zulu culture take a trip to see the Campbell collections. These artefacts and documents collected by a father and daughter create a vivid impression of the region's cultural roots. The Durban Botanic Gardens provide a welcome sanctuary away from the city with thousands of native plants and trees providing welcome shade from the sun. Take a picnic for a relaxing day out and see bridal parties posing for photographs at the weekend.
