Durban Accommodation, South Africa
Situated on the lush green KwaZulu-Natal coast, Durban accommodation is located in one of the major, bustling centres of commercial and cultural life in South Africa and has become a prime tourist destination. Durban, while hot and humid in the summer months, mellows to a mild yet comfortable climate in the winter, making it an excellent choice if visiting South Africa during anytime of the year.
While the rest of the country wraps up tight in blankets Durban offers the traveller an opportunity to discard a few layers and revel in the warm blue oceans. Vast stretches of open beach surround the exotic semi-tropical vegetation that gives the coast its green vibrant hues. A chance to indulge and educate oneself in the underwater kingdom of Ushaka Marine World should not be missed, nor a visit to Wet n Wild, also at Ushaka, where even in winter, kids of all ages can enjoy the warm waters and irresistible water slides. A more recent addition to the skyline is the Moses Mabhida Stadium. This momentous construction should be enjoyed from the top of the 360 step climb up to the bungee ledge, where, should one feel brave enough to jump, one can complete the highest and widest swing in the world, with a height of 106 metres and an arc of 220 meters, this is an experience not for the faint of heart.
Apart from the climate Durban offers a range of activities and events over the winter months, making sure visitors always have something on their to do list. Throughout this time, and in particular during the school holidays, Durban offers a range of high-class social events and functions, such as the Durban July horse race. This, coupled with fashion, air and boat shows; surfing and other beach events and an enticing nightlife of dancing and dining, make Durban a great choice at any time of the year and the best winter choice while travelling in South Africa. Durban and its surrounds, like many prime tourist destinations, offer a range of travel packages to suit the individual needs of all travellers.
From life in the lap of luxury, staying in world class hotels and guest houses to the more intimate experience of backpacking up and down the coastline, indulging and delighting in the vibrant and accommodating city communities, is a journey no traveller should easily forget.
