Discount Durban car rental available from Avis Rent a Car at branches located in the city, at many of Durban's seaside resorts, and in other towns throughout KwaZulu-Natal.
The metropolis of Durban is an exciting, subtropical city on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean. It's the second largest city in South Africa. A bustling fusion of African, European and Asian culture, Durban’s all-year-round temperate weather and cosmopolitan atmosphere make this an ideal holiday destination.
The Durban harbour, once a natural lagoon, is the busiest cargo port in the country, and the tenth largest port in the world. Durban is also the industrial gateway to Africa and is certainly the industrial centre of KwaZulu-Natal, manufacturing a variety of goods.
Durban Tourist Attractions
Across from the harbour lies the Durban beachfront, known as the Golden Mile. Hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and other attractions line the beach, and have earned Durban the reputation of being South Africa's Miami. The temperate waters of the Indian Ocean make Durban beaches ideal for a multitude of water sports, such as surfing, sailing and scuba diving.
Durban provides a wealth of music, theatre, museums, art galleries, monuments and shopping centres.
Day tours of the Durban city centre, of the beautiful Hluhluwe Game Reserve, and of the colourful local townships are available.
uShaka Marine World
Not to be missed is the spectacular new uShaka Marine World, which incorporates fresh and seawater life and boasts a re-creation of the wreck of a 1940's cargo ship.
Valley of 1,000 Hills
Further inland lie the hills and valleys of the beautiful Valley of 1000 Hills, where traditional rural communities live. Some of the tourist attractions in this area include spectacular sceneery, craft villages and safari parks.
