Durban in detail


With a temperate climate and excellent facilities to enjoy, Durbanites are passionate about their nature, outdoor and adrenaline-inducing activities.


With the pedestrian and bike promenades along the beachfront and linking the stadium to the beachfront, cycling is a fabulous way to see parts of Durban.


Several boat and charter trips can be arranged from Wilson’s Wharf.


Durban has an array of decent golf courses. Windsor Park Municipal Golf Course is a popular option. On another level is Durban Country Club, considered by some to be the best golf course in South Africa.

Indoor Extreme Activities

Besides the Big Swing (R695) inside Moses Mabhida Stadium, you can try your surfing prowess at the artificial wave house (R130 per hour) at giant Gateway Mall – the water shots will have you performing tricks left, right and centre (your feet are secured into the board, so nonsurfers can have a go).


Durban has a multitude of good surfing beaches.
