Durban is a natural paradise known for its beautiful stretch of sun-kissed beaches and subtropical climate, making this one of the major centres of tourism. Durban’s beachfront viewpoint provides tourists with a continuous ten kilometres of spectacular sea sights, as well as a wide array of restaurants and cafes, open-air amusement, and local craft markets. Located on the east coast of South Africa, the city is famous for being the busiest port in the country.
Durban is the largest city in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal and forms part of the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, which includes neighbouring towns. The city has a population of about 3.44 million, making the combined municipality one of the biggest cities on the Indian Ocean coast of the African continent. It is also the second most important manufacturing hub in South Africa after Johannesburg. In 2015, Durban was recognised as one of the New 7 Wonders Cities. The city is one of the most culturally diverse in Southern Africa, having a rich and vibrant history and an exciting and beautiful present. It includes widely different coastal areas as well as landscapes, with more breath-taking mountain ranges in the area, as well as the oldest game reserve around Africa.
Visitors can look forward to a unique set of experiences that go beyond the beach and into the realm of Durban’s diverse culture, urban lifestyle and scenic diversity. Whether you are in Durban on business or for leisure, there is a warm African flavour that will capture your heart forever.
