About Durban


flights from port elizabeth to durban


Durban is a travel destination that’s globally renowned and draws in hordes of national and international visitors annually.

While it’s well-known for its famous beaches, this vibrant coastal city has plenty of things to do for different travellers. This goes for art enthusiasts, history buffs, foodies, and more.


Best Time to Visit Durban

Durban is a city boasting pleasant weather all year round for the most part, which makes it extremely popular. This means that there isn’t a “best time” to visit Durban; it’s all about choosing whichever period works best for you.

If you’re visiting Durban for the beaches, then be sure to visit in summer between December and February. The sun is out daily, and there are tons of places to cool off. Beware though, this is also the most touristy time in the city and it’s also the rainy season.

If you are trying to avoid the crowds, then fly up to Durban in winter between June and August. Despite it being the cold season, temperatures rarely dip below 20° C and make for an incredible time for exploring the indoors and outdoors.
