Exploring Durban

Decorated with the natural jewels of dense woods and beautiful hill terrains, Durban is the largest city of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. After Cape Town and Johannesburg, this is the third massive city of South Africa. The location of Durban on the shores of the marine rich Indian Ocean makes this city warm and pleasant all through the year. With its sunny beaches, fascinating Afro-Indian culture and natural beaches, the city is one of the hotshot tourist destinations. Durban’s sandy beaches with huge waves makes it’s a perfect surfer's haven and great spot for sun worshiping. Not just beaches, this city is also popular for its lavish and unique 1000 Hills Arts and Crafts Village- home of trendy restaurants, kid's play area, spa, animal yard, a pub, affordable shops, and family fun areas. Adrenal junkies can easily find their cup of adventure in Durban such as Big Rush Big Swing- an adrenalin-fueled activity offering harnessed swinging off a high stadium rooftop. Other famous attractions of the city are Sri Sri Radhanath Temple of Understanding, Durban Botanic Gardens, Valley of 1000 Hills and Umhlanga Lighthouse.
