Holiday in Durban, Kwazulu Natal

This garden province is arguably South Africa’s most naturally beautiful region, stretching along the east coast to the border with Mozambique. Pietermaritzburg is the capital of KZN and Durban is the largest city in the province. It’s a sun-kissed area of verdant green valleys and forests, subtropical coastline, the impressive Drakensberg mountains and a fascinating insight into the indigenous Zulu customs and the historic battlefields of the Boer War.

Why Visit Durban

Durban is the gateway to cultural Zululand and Drakensberg, but its ‘golden mile’ of pristine beaches and endearing promenade have long made it a much-loved destination in its own right. Umhlanga Rocks and Salt Rock are two diminutive beachside districts offering boutique hotels right on the surf, while the former has a landmark lighthouse to marvel at and the latter is blessed with proven fishing spots and striking reefs just offshore.
