"A warm welcome to Durban" GerryFM's Profile

Welcome to Durban in sunny South Africa!!!

I have been living in Durban since the age of two, and have travelled extensively, but always enjoy coming home to this laid back and relaxed city.

Durban is a coastal city on the Indian Ocean and is known for its great beaches, beach culture and beach sports. It hosts a huge Beach Event every July called "Beach Africa" which is visited by over 1 million people during the two weeks of events.

3 hours north of Durban by car, and you are in the bush, at Hluhluwe Game Reserve (pronounced shoo-shloo - we), and the chance to spot the famous Big Five in their natuaral environment. There is no better weekend relaxer than packing up the kids and spending a weekend in the bush with the sounds of nature, the roar of the lions, the laugh of a hyena and the cry of a fish eagle!!!!

I will gradually update these pages, as I have just joined up, but would love to hear from you.

Put your feet up and relax in Durban

Durban is one of South Africa's favourite holiday destinations, and a perfect place to kick your feet up and relax...... no matter where you may be!!!

Largest Port in Africa

Durban has the largest and busiest harbour on the African continent, and one can often see up to 50 ships queing out at sea, waiting to come into shore.

Good spot to enjoy a "Booze Cruise" as well !!!

The Golden Mile

The Golden Mile in Durban, is a hive of activity on weekends and during the holiday seasons, and of course the Beach Africa Festival.

Lots to see and do here, including pubs, resaurants, swimming pools, beaches, flea markets, running and cycling and more ......

Rainbow People

Since transition from the aparthied era, South Africa has become known as the Rainbow Nation.

This is evident in Durban especially, where you will find people of different races, creeds and religious beliefs all living in harmony.

We are friendly and warm and always try to be accommodating.

Enjoy a Cool Sundowner under African Skies

Picture it ....... in the wild bush of Africa, around a campsite, with meat sizzling away on the bbq, sipping a cocktail, listing to lions roaring in the distance and the laugh of the hyena ..... watching the sun setting in the horison .... this is what I was doing when I took this photo!!!
