Popular tours and itineraries including Durban

Durban

Famed for its busy beachfront and Indian influence, cosmopolitan ‘Durbs’ is well worth a day’s exploration. Grab a curry along Victoria Street, then admire downtown’s colonial and art deco architecture, along with lively markets and exotic aromas. Interrupted only by an attractive waterfront promenade – part of a pre-2010 World Cup spruce-up – that seaside’s part of a stretch which extends for leagues in either direction. South Africa’s third-largest city is also a jumping-off point for visitors headed for Drakensberg and the Battlefields, plus those off whale-watching or surfing along the wild Elephant Coast. 

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
