What Time of Year is Best to Visit Durban

Durban is an amazing coastal city on the eastern seaboard of South Africa, in the Kwa-Zulu Natal province. Renowned as a premier summer vacation destination in South Africa, Durban features a warm subtropical climate. Seasonally Durban experiences hot and humid summers, while the winter months are characterised by dry and cool days.

Depending on what you plan for your trip, different months of the year will deliver different adventures. If you’re aiming to experience more than just the beaches of Durban, planning your trip for the months between April and September is perfect. Locally these are winter months, and while the weather in Durban might cool down a bit, the days are still perfect.

Due to a decrease in local travel during these months, opting to book your Airlink flights anytime from April to September will result in the cheapest flights to Durban.
