Flights to Durban

Downtown Durban is a metropolis, but it's easy to escape the bustle when you want to; all it takes is a stroll down the Golden Mile that hugs the beach. Breathing in that fresh sea air while watching surfers and sunbathers is the perfect tonic.

Sporty types and lovers of the outdoors board flights to Durban, or Durbs, as the locals refer to it, for its beaches and golf courses. You can also dive into the Indian Ocean with a scuba school and explore the deep. Durban has plenty of family-friendly activities too, from exploring the surrounding wildlife or visiting an attraction such as uShaka Marine World, one of the world’s largest aquariums.

Durban is also one of the best places to experience Zulu food and culture, with Zulus making up more than half the population of the city. It makes for an eclectic experience and it's great for unique gift shopping. Plus, thanks to its large Indian population, you can easily find great culinary treats such as the Durban specialty ‘bunny chow’ – a fast food dish consisting of a hollowed out loaf of bread filled with curry.

The suburbs of Durban are worth exploring as they showcase the colonial whitewashed buildings with charming balconies in leafy surroundings. Here, you will find hidden gems such as community cafes and delis. For example, head to the gentrified area of Morningside for its restaurants, entertainment and Edwardian and Victorian period homes.

With a vibrant music and arts scene, there are also plenty of places to catch a variety of live performances across Durban, although the majority of nightlife venues are located by the Golden Mile. Many Durban theatres stage local and national productions; in particular, check out the National Playhouse on Smith Street.

What to do in Durban

Explore the Indian quarter

Durban boasts one of the largest Indian communities outside of the subcontinent. Notable for being the place where Gandhi spent part of his life, the Indian Quarter in Durban is full of great shops selling spices and clothes, especially the Victoria Street Market. The impressive Juma Masjid Mosque is also worth visiting while you're in the neighbourhood.
