Situated on the lush green KwaZulu Natal coast, accommodation in Durban is located in one of the major, bustling centres of commercial and cultural life in South Africa and has become a prime tourist destination, not least because there are so many things to do in Durban and the surrounding areas. Durban experiences hot humid weather conditions in summer and moderate to warm temperatures in winter, making Durban accommodation a great year round option.
Among the things to do in Durban is the chance to educate oneself about the underwater kingdom at Ushaka Marine World. Kids of all ages find the water slides irresistible. A more recent but notable addition to the Durban skyline is the Moses Mabhida Stadium. The stadium offers adrenaline junkies the 360 step climb up to the bungee ledge, where you can complete the highest and widest bridge swing in the world. With a height of 106 metres and an arc of 220 meters, this experience is not for the faint hearted.
For the outdoorsy, Durban’s coast (including a number with Blue Flag status) offers clean, sandy beaches perfect for a day of lounging and sand-castle building. Great surfing spots are found on the main beach front, making it accessible to keen surfers and spectators alike. The beach front promenade, which runs between the stadium and Ushaka Marine World, is a very pleasant evening activity.
A lot of Durban accommodation is found in areas like Umhlanga (where many of the best hotels in Durban are to be found) and Durban North. Other popular tourist suburbs include Berea, Bluff and Morningside.
Between the wide range of Durban accommodation, large variety of things to do there and the wonderful year-round good weather, accommodation in Durban should be a strong contender for your holiday budget.
