Durban

Surf City

Sunny weather and golden beaches await you on a vacation in Durban, a busy port city on the Indian Ocean known for its outdoorsy atmosphere.
Step out of the city life by going to Golden Mile and Thompson's Bay Beach. Relax by the water at Umhlanga Main Beach and Umdloti Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Durban side-trips: Spas (in Ballito) and The Puzzle Place (in Botha's Hill). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, browse the different shops at Westville Junction, stroll through Umhlanga Beach, and browse the exhibits of Andrew Early Design Studio.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Durban trip planner.

Johannesburg to Durban is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Johannesburg in April: high temperatures in Durban hover around 32°C and lows are around 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to go by car to St Lucia.

In KwaZulu-Natal, opposites attract: modern malls and old bazaars, tribal settlements and shiny skyscrapers, and traditional customs and Western culture. Relax on some of the numerous tranquil beaches that dot the region's long coastline on the Indian Ocean. Climb the mountains, take a savannah safari, see Africa's Big Five game, then go partying after dark. Other highlights of a KwaZulu-Natal itinerary include the second-highest waterfall in the world, Zulu villages, and historic battlefields.
