Experience the eclectic! Durban is a sprawling, friendly city with beautiful beaches, often compared to Miami Beach. What really sets Durban apart from other South African cities is its rich ethnic mix. More than half of Durban’s inhabitants are Zulu and almost one fifth of the population is made up of Indians, creating a colorful, vibrant cocktail. Visit the interesting Indian neighborhood with its bustling market, explore the breathtaking landscapes in the surrounding areas such as the The Valley of a Thousand Hills. Enjoy the less visited tropical beaches around northern Umhlanga and La Mercy, or discover the well known diving spots at Amanzimtoti, a few kilometers south.
