ACCOMMODATION IN DURBAN
This steamy, subtropical city has a vibe all its own. From the bead sellers and flamboyant rickshaw-wallahs on the beachfront to the saffron-robed monks in the temples, Durban epitomises the rainbow nation like almost no other city in the country. With long beaches and warm tropical water literally across the road from the central business district, this city is about the beach. And in Durban, the beach is not a quiet place. It’s an exuberant celebration of life with people from all walks of life walking, swimming, surfing, running or performing religious rites at the edge of the ocean. It’s the biggest harbour in South Africa, and it’s the gateway to all the pleasures of KwaZulu-Natal.
