Durban is a city buzzing with things to do. Peruse contemporary local art at the suburban KwaZulu Natal Society of Arts Gallery or stay central and hop on the Durban Ricksha Bus for a three-hour guided city tour. Ride the SkyCar up the arch of the Moses Mabhida Stadium for unrivalled 360-degree views over the city and enjoy a leisurely picnic in Africa’s oldest botanical gardens. uShaka Marine World offers endless family fun with its aquarium and waterpark.
Beautifully located on South Africa’s sun-drenched Indian Ocean coast, Durban is famous for its Golden Mile of idyllic sandy beaches. Flanked by beachfront luxury hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, this surfers’ paradise lies along a natural bay and is also popular for swimming, bodyboarding, fishing or just stretching out and sunbathing on the golden sands.
Home to the highest concentration of Indians outside of India, Durban is renowned for its incredible curries. If you can handle the heat, sample the city’s iconic Bunny Chow – a hollowed-out loaf of bread filled with rich, spicy curry – at local institutions Bunny Hugging and Gounden’s. Foodies can also feast on freshly-caught seafood, slow-cooked barbecue and decadent afternoon tea (a lingering British tradition from the city’s colonial era).
Those looking to indulge in retail therapy won’t be disappointed. Durban’s landmark Pavilion Mall is home to almost 250 stores, while Station Drive has been transformed from an industrial area into a hip enclave with micro-distillery, vintage shops and hand-crafted designer goods. Just north of Durban, the rapidly developing city of Umhlanga is home to Africa’s largest mall, the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, along with beautiful beaches and a scenic nature reserve. For an intriguing insight into Zulu culture, book a day trip to Shakaland, a traditional Zulu village located 160km north of the city where you can try authentic cuisine, watch iconic African tribe dances and learn about centuries-old crafts like basket-weaving and pottery.
Durbanites love dancing to the raw electro beats of gqom, the city’s homegrown music genre which has exploded onto the international scene. The nightlife scene here is peppered with buzzing dance clubs such as Chill Action Bar Point, Club101 and Havana Music Lounge, where top DJs play distinctive and infectious rhythms into the early hours.
