Durban is a sophisticated cosmopolitan city where east meets west - a city beneath which beats the pulse of Africa - Durban the Playground of the Zulu Kingdom. It’s an exciting place in which to play, shop, experience the nightlife, explore natural and cultural marvels - and to relax.
Durban Metro beckons visitors to this sublime paradise and the addition of three invaluable elements to the ever-evolving, ever-widening portfolio of irresistible attractions makes this a vacation destination with something for everyone - the magnificent environment and cultural wonders of the Valley of a Thousand Hills; the long and tranquil beaches of the South; and up-market ambience of the historic and culturally rich Umhlanga.
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 local’s 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.
Sophisticated and cosmopolitan, Durban Metro after dark is abuzz with elegant lounges, funky taverns and cosy inns, distinctive local theatre and live music, trendy clubs, pubs and discos. Dance until dawn and catch sunrise over the vast Indian Ocean horizon - this is nightlife in a modern, authentic African metropolis.
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 stunning surrounds.
Africa's bewitching seaside playground in the sun, Durban has from its earliest days possessed a special charm - a certain mystique that adds 'something extra' to the meeting of warm Indian Ocean, radiant golden sands and lush sub-tropical greenery.
Just a breath away from central Durban, the expansive evergreen western inland route opens her arms for you to explore and enjoy. Zululand Safari and Game Parks, the Battlefields Route, The Drakensberg Mountain Range (Barrier of Spears) and the Coastal Routes (Dolphin & Sapphire Coasts) are all within a day visit away.
While the estate golf courses inland feature high on the list, you can also tee off alongside the ocean or pause on the green as the field thunders by on race day. But should you fancy entertainment of the indoors variety, there are always the slot- machines and gaming tables of Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom!
All the delights of the city are linked by efficient transport services - the same network that connects you with the star attractions a little further afield. No less than two World Heritage Sites wait among the majestic Berg, teeming Bush, endless Beach and monumental Battlefields that lie within easy reach.
Named the Place of Whales by King Shaka after marvelling at the giant creatures basking in the river mouth, the broad Mkomazi River's southern bank is crowned by the spectacularly sited town of Umkomaas, worth an extra mention because 5 kilometres offshore lies the internationally renowned scuba-diving combination of Aliwal Shoal and the Nebo - a steamer that sank in 1884.
Zulu Kingdom is a holiday destination unlike any other - a vast array of thrilling adventures - beginning with the charismatic, multi-faceted and progressive Durban – a city the Zulu people know as Thekweni. Durban Spa put you within easy access of all the area has to offer while providing a comfortable and well-appointed home base.
