Durban Adventures and Things To Do. Durban integrates the commercial vibe of Johannesburg with the seaside lifestyle of Cape Town in a climate that’s beach-hot every day. It’s a destination for the fun-loving adventurer who likes to keep busy or a family with kids to entertain. South Africans love holidaying here, so if you want to experience the real deal, this is the place. There’s a spicy mix of cultures in Durban that gives it a tangible soul. It’s the busiest port in Africa and the energy of that status pumps through the city.

The iconic Golden Mile, a wide promenade running some 7-kilometres above the golden beaches, piers and other tourist attractions, is how metropolitan Durban greets the Indian Ocean. It’s bookended by two of the city’s top attractions; Ushaka Marine World and the Moses Mabhida Stadium. The buzz of this stretch of coastline begins at about 6 am when surfers rise from the darkness and hit the water. Then it’s joggers and dog walkers, cyclists, Segway tours and rickshaws. The aroma of coffee, suntan lotion and curry mingle with the salty smell of the ocean. Your day in Durban has begun.

With the Golden Mile as your base, you could be busy for days. Engaging walking tours, surf schools, sight-seeing cycle trips, boat trips and diving with sharks, are all within walking distance. A short drive to the launch site, and you can rise above the city and her handsome shoreline in a helicopter.

Powered by fun, bounce out of Durban and head for the hills. A thousand of them, literally. Magnetic in its soft rolling emerald greenness The Valley of a Thousand Hills offers adventure in nature close to the city. If you are using Durban as a springboard for the magnificent Drakensberg, just make sure you give yourself some time to explore in flip-flops before you put on your hiking boots.
