Durban Holiday Packages
Located on eastern coast of South Africa, Durban is a great getaway for beach lovers longing for a relaxed atmosphere. But don't let the year-round tropical climate and its warm temperatures fool you into thinking that "relaxed" means "boring." This area is a gateway to all kinds of experiences, including outings to the botanic gardens, beach events, shopping and cultural attractions. No matter what time of year you visit, Durban holidays are filled with lounging opportunities and leisurely pastimes that support a Zen state of mind and minimum brain drain.
Things to do in Durban
Our Durban holiday packages provide just the right amount of escapism, and the most difficult decision involves choosing which attraction to take in first. From watersports to beachfront activities, guided city tours and outings to nearby towns, Durban has it covered. This city is the gateway to the Kwazulu-Natal area, a destination sure to leave you fascinated by the local culture. We’re talking historic battlefields, wildlife experiences at game reserves and views of the Drakensberg Mountains, a backdrop for the forests, hillsides and streams that make the area such a beautiful place to visit. If this sounds smashing, check out our Kwazulu-Natal packages , which let you immerse yourself in natural scenery.
Durban car hire deals—booked through Wotif, of course!—as well as shuttles and chartered buses provide easy access to these adventures. Pick out a set of wheels and let your adventure truly begin.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Durban packages provide visitors with a variety of excuses to shop, from street markets full of crafts and accessories to modern shopping venues, including regional fashion boutiques and cinemas for the movie buffs out there. If you head about 15 km north of Durban to the resort town of Umhlanga, you’ll get to shop and test your mettle at one of the world's tallest rock climbing walls. And you though browsing for souvenirs was nerve-wracking!
After working up a hearty appetite at the rock wall, you can feed your hunger with some delicious local dishes at Gateway Theatre of Shopping, an Umhlanga shopping and dining complex, but for authentic flair head to downtown Durban’s street markets for a real taste of local cuisine. The Indian district offers deliciously spiced local foods that will leave you clamouring for more. If local isn't your flavour, you can also find foreign foods to placate your taste buds.
When the sun sets, it's time to work off any overindulgence with some of Durban's bouncing nightlife. The Durban Golden Mile is home to one of the area's largest gaming casinos featuring the usual bandits, including slot machines and gaming tables. Just outside of Durban in the Kwazulu-Natal area of Pinetown, you will find a variety of dance clubs featuring music from rock to current chart-topping hits.
Whether you want beachfront relaxation or a hopping evening out, Wotif’s Durban holiday deals will deliver. We’ll score you awesome rates on accommodation, so book your Durban holiday now to let the adventure begin!
