Durban now is a vibrant community and a City full of diverse cultures, beautiful beaches, nightlife, a Revolving restaurant, Waterfront canal waterways, and the stunning warm Indian Ocean.
In Durban, we have a favorable climate even in Winter so plenty of Sun and of course the Sea (Indian ocean). Ushaka Marine world on South beach is another attraction to our great city in close proximity to the beautiful Durban waterfront canals.
Durban had always been used as a trade port between Europe, Africa, and Asia. In the past years Ivory and Spices were the big traders but today it is Cars, Sugar, Fruit, and other raw materials.

Durban City is a special place to visit! There is a surprising amount of History attached to Durban City, KwaZulu-Natal. The great Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama was the first man to sail past this eastern coastline of South Africa in 1497 on Christmas Day. He aptly named the river which exits the Durban Harbour; Rio De Natal meaning the Christmas river!
It was not until 1823 that the first Europeans actually came onto land at Rio De Natal, headed by James King from England who was sent to check to see if Vasco Da Gama’s writing were correct, that Durban was a natural harbour. It was true excepting a sand bank in the middle of the harbour which is drenched regularly. According to James King’s writings the sand bank contained Hippos, crocodiles and flamingos! This must have been a frightening scene for western settlers.
