A unique holiday destination, Durban is situated in the KwaZulu Province of South Africa and is the second largest city in South Africa.

Founded by British settlers in 1835, the city was named after Sir Benjamin Durban, then governor of Cape Town. Locally known as Thekwini, Durban is South Africa’s leading beach resort with ideal year-round beach weather and a relaxed atmosphere. Located along Africa’s southernmost tip, Durban has an extraordinary ambiance and is known as Africa’s ‘busiest and best-managed port’.

Durbanites truly regard their city as cosmopolitan: a melting pot of cultures, religions and history that has given rise to an extraordinarily rich and appealing destination. Durban is a great place to play, shop, experience nightlife and relax on one of the city’s award-winning beaches.

The city’s multi-ethnic character makes it the perfect place to experience the delights of African and Indian cuisine.
