About Durban

Durban is a sophisticated cosmopolitan city of over three million people – a city where east meets west – a city beneath which beats the pulse of Africa – city known as the home of Africa’s best managed, busiest port.

Durban is an exciting city in which to play, shop, experience the nightlife and to relax. It’s a city in which business and debate issues, which have far-reaching effects, not only on Africa but way beyond its borders, are discussed.

The world-class International Convention Centre Durban has hosted an historic line-up of events including conferences of a global scale.

Leisure facilities abound in Durban. Visit uShaka Marine World, Wilson’s Wharf on the Victoria Embankment and the nearby BAT centre. Enjoy fine and traditional dining, entertainment and shopping in scenic surroundings. Shop till you drop in modern shopping malls. Grey Street and the Warwick Triangle boast vibrant locals shops and markets. Beachfront stalls sell traditional arts and crafts. Enjoy the excellent entertainment on offer at the city’s theatres and clubs or take a township tour.

If it’s peace and sheer beauty you are after, make for Durban’s nature sanctuaries or parks. The Botanical Gardens are of particular interest – ask about their ‘Music by the Lake’ evenings – wonderful music played by KZN’s Philharmonic Orchestra in wonder surrounds.

Sail, swim, run, and play tennis or alternatively stroll along or relax on the sun-denched beaches watching the world go by. Durban the Playground of the Zulu Kingdom.

About Pietermaritzburg

Visits by the likes of Gandhi, Mandela and Twain, the Comrades and Dusi Marathons, museums, art galleries, rolling hills, waterfalls and a special style of country living are some of the things that make the Pietermaritzburg and Midlands region of South Africa famous.

Pietermaritzburg is home to quaint antique shops, markets, restaurants, art galleries and museums, and more recently a casino. This is the town in which the annual Dusi Canoe Marathon starts, and is the beginning or ending point of the world- renowned annual Comrades Marathon between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, which attracts about 15 000 participants.

The Midlands Meander, the first route of its kind in the country, opened up the wonders and beauty of the interior of KwaZulu-Natal over a decade ago. It has grown into an eclectic and fascinating mix of arts and crafts, world-class restaurants and homely comforts, with a wide range of sporting environmental and historical pursuits.

Take a few days to wander through the green fields and picturesque farms of the Midlands, home to prize dairy herds, staying along the way in country-style B&Bs, or guest lodges for personal service.

The magnificent Howick Falls located in Midlands provide picnic facilities. Trout and bass fishing are plentiful and for the more adventurous there is paragliding off Bulwer Mountain or taking a slide across the canopy of Karkloof’s indigenous forests.
