Africa's bewitching seaside playground in the sun, Durban has from its earliest days possessed a special charm...a certain mystique that adds 'something extra' to the meeting of warm Indian Ocean, radiant golden sands and lush sub-tropical greenery. Our Kingdom of the Zulu is a holiday destination quite unlike any other. We look forward to introducing you to this vast array of thrilling adventures...

HIGHLIGHTS

* Swim with the fish or enjoy the water slides at uShaka Marine World.
* Watch Zulu dancing at the Valley of a Thousand Hills.
* Enjoy the shops and restaurants at the Heritage Market, Hillcrest.
* Stroll along Umhlanga's promenade.
* Take in the magnificent scenery of the Drakensberg Mountains.
* For a unique cultural experience, visit the 'uMlilo ka Zulu' (Circles of Fire) Cultural Village, adjoining the Sibaya Casino Complex.

WHAT TO EXPECT

To visit Durban's beachfront is to see its citizens at play. Early morning joggers and walkers throng to its long, wide promenade, many an office worker heads down there to shed suit and tie for a quick lunchtime surf session and young children frolic in the shorebreak.
A short drive to the north lies Umhlanga, coastal playground of the jetset, with imposing mansions, great shopping, pavement cafes and an addictively cool, laidback vibe.
Durban's port is Africa's busiest, and down at the restaurants at the water's edge, patrons watch as tugs, yachts and huge container ships constantly glide by, tantalisingly close.
The world-class uShaka Marine World, in a prime spot with magnificent beach and harbour views, is a must-see, with an aquarium set within a 'shipwreck', adventure water rides and a snorkel tank.
The Valley of a Thousand Hills, a 45-minute drive from the city centre, offers great views and a taste of traditional Zulu culture, and a bit further west lies the Midlands Meander experience, an excellent arts and culture route.
Then there's the mighty Drakensberg range of mountains, home to dozens of country hotels and guest houses, and a clutch of this country's finest World Heritage Sites.

CLIMATE
Warmed by the Indian Ocean, sub-tropical Durban sizzles in summer and has famously mild winters, but it owes its reputation as a hot spot to far more than a magnificent climate.

HOW TO GET THERE
Flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town operate daily into Durban. Alternatively, Durban is a 6 hour drive from Johannesburg.
