Durban 'the Kingdom of the Zulu'
Durban is a sophisticated cosmopolitan city of over three million people which has just about everything for the leisure visitor: a balmy, subtropical climate, splendid beaches, & warm Indian Ocean, internationally renowned surfing waves, excellent hotels and restaurants, glittering shopping malls, lively theatres, casino, museums, sporting venues, lush green parks and gardens and much more, making it one of South Africa's premier holiday destinations. It is also home to Africa's largest and busiest port; a place where east meets west, pulsating with the rhythms of Africa.
With the freedom of your car hire many Durban attractions will be just moments away - from the uShaka Marine World to the casino at the Gateway shopping mall and the Golden Mile of the Marine Parade along the beach front with many attractions and activities. The beaches of Durban are lapped by the warm Indian Ocean - an invitation for a perfect day of fun on the beach.
Durban is famous for its Zulu Rickshaw pullers. These colourful characters are famous for their giant, vibrant head gear and colourful costumes. Although they have been a mode of transportation since the early 1900's, they mainly cater to tourists today and can only be found on the Marine Parade.
For Durban accommodation we recommend the Umhlanga Rocks area just 20km north of the city with golden beaches and somewhat more peaceful than the bustling harbour city. With your Durban car hire you are not restricted to any particular area and can choose from lavish and luxurious hotels or economical Guest House accommodation to back-packing on a budget; Durban accommodates every taste. In July 2011 Prince Albert & Princess Charlene of Monaco chose Umhlanga Rocks as their preferred honeymoon destination.
Durban Airport car hire has 24 hour car hire facilities so we will be open waiting for you no matter what time you arrive. The new King Shaka Durban International airport is therefore the perfect starting point to set off on your adventurous holiday.
From Durban you can travel north to the World Heritage Site of the Greater St Lucia Wetlands, inland to the Kingdom of the Zulus or further north into Swaziland. (A Letter of Authorisation to cross the border of Swaziland with your rental car must be obtained from the car rental company). Travel westwards to the Battlefields which will be of interest to war enthusiasts as three different wars were fought in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands around Dundee, Newcastle and Ladysmith - The Boer settlers against the Zulus - the British against the Zulus - and the Boer War, which included Winston Churchill and Mahatma Gandhi both of whom became future Prime Ministers. You can also head straight through Swaziland to the Kruger National Park.
