April is typically the best time to fly to Durban, but there are other times where great deals are available. January tends to be the warmest period in Durban so if you are looking for sun or warmer climates then look to fly around this time. February is the wettest if you need to factor this in to your plans.

South Africa’s third-largest city, beachside Durban is a lively, year round holiday destination. While the beach is certainly the focus for most visitors, the city’s shopping malls, bars and restaurants manage to draw travellers inland.

Dubbed the largest Indian city outside India, Durban fuses African and subcontinent cultures to form a unique sensory experience. Colonial and Art Deco buildings also reflect the South Africa’s European influence.

Located on South Africa’s east coast in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, travellers will find even more stunning scenery just beyond Durban’s city limits. To the north is the bustling coastal town of Umhlanga and to the south the Sapphire Coast, an endless sub-tropical paradise. 

In the west you’ll find the Valley of 1000 Hills with its nature reserves and cultural villages. A little further a?eld lie Big Five game reserves and the mighty Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park.

Getting around Durban

Like most South African cities the best way to get around is by car. Be sure to check that you have the latest updated street maps and/or GPS as a number of street names have changed in recent years. There is a commuter train service between Durban and the surrounding area as far as Stanger on the north coast, Kelso on the south coast, and Cato Ridge inland. The local bus service covers most of the beachfront and central residential areas and the larger Aqualine buses run through the outer metropolitan area.

Both metered taxis and minibus taxis can be found in the city. Metered taxis must be called and ordered to a specific location. Minibus taxis (combi taxis) are the main form of transport for those locals who can’t afford private cars.

Durban’s iconic Zulu Rickshaw pullers have been around since the early 1900s, but today the remaining rickshaws mostly cater to tourists.
