Durban, South Africa's playground, is situated on the east coast of South Africa.

An hours flight from Johannesburg (where most International flights arrive) and a two hour flight from Cape Town.

Durban is popular with both local and international travellers, as our climate stays constant throughout the year, and is great for working on that tan.

We have plenty of top quality hotels and there are also loads of good quality bed and breakfast establishments, as well as youth hostels.

Durban people are generally quite friendly and hospitable and love welcoming people from all parts of the world

Durban CBD, is like any other bustling city centre, except that it generally quite dirty.

But not too bad. Nothing to exciting to see or do here though.

Our City hall is quite and attractive colonial building, and was modelled on the Belfast City Hall in Northern Ireland

    Sounds like Durban has it all. I am not sure why anyone would be looking at the horse with the object of your picture in sight, however ;-\
