Discover Durban

Get to know one of Africa’s hidden gems!

Located on the east coast of South Africa, in the province of KwaZulu Natal, Durban is one of Africa’s hidden gems that is yet to be discovered by most travelers. The city lies at the mouth of the Umgeni River, demarcating parts of Durban’s north city limit. Other parts of the river flow through the city itself, giving it a charming and picturesque look.  Durban has a natural harbour, Durban Harbour, which is the busiest port in South Africa and is the 4th-busiest in the Southern Hemisphere.

Durban is an ethnically diverse city, with a cultural richness, mixed beliefs and traditions. Zulus form the largest ethnic group. There’s also a large number of people of British and Indian descent. The influence of Indians in Durban has been significant and is felt nowadays as  a variety of cuisine, culture and religion was brought by them.
