Durban Attractions

Durban’s climate attracts visitors from around the world; warm and sunny summers and mild winters make it an ideal destination. Durban attractions include fun and exciting destinations for the entire family as well as romantic sites for that special trip just for couples.

Best of Nature
Durban attractions are not only enjoyable but educational and informative. Visitors should not miss the special nature lovers’ sites like the Umgeni River Bird Park, a beautiful park located on the river’s banks, where you can see over 3,000 exotic birds and learn about endangered species.

Tip: Do not leave without enjoying the free-flight show; you’ll see amazing colorful birds.

Another important Durban attraction is Durban’s Botanical Gardens, a place made famous by the Cycad, a rare plant, and in fact, the rarest in the world. Here, you can see several of its species and visit one of the most varied Orchid Houses on the planet.

Golden Mile
A stroll or rickshaw ride through the stretch that makes the Golden Mile is truly a must for all visitors. It’s the place to enjoy cool breezes blowing gently from the Indian Ocean. Here, you’ll find an array of Durban attractions, like the Blue Lagoon, a favorite place of locals for fishing and picnicking. You’ll also come across Mini Town, a mini reproduction of the city of Durban, an interesting display. You can also enjoy Skate Park and the Surfing Museum, a place of interest for those who would enjoy the history of surfers that have challenged the waves off the coast of Durban.

On the northern part of the Golden Mile you’ll find the Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World with its private beach, restaurants and shops.

To the South, you’ll find the latest of Durban attractions, the uShaka Marine World, the largest water theme park and home to the world’s largest shark tank. It’s also a great place to bond with dolphins. Kids can enjoy the theme park Wet’n Wild, an array of fun rides, while you stroll through the shops of the Village Walk.

Museums & Landmarks

Durban attractions also include great venues that relate the history of apartheid, like the Kwa Muhle museum. If you would like to learn about the history of Durban and its indentured labor period, the Durban Cultural and Document Centre is a great place. Do not miss the Maritime Museum, another great site, relating among others, the history of Vasco De Gama, the Portuguese explorer.

An outing to the Old Fort, the remains of a fort where the British fought opposing forces in the 1800s, is enjoyable. Its war museum, St. Peter in Chains, is a favorite place for weddings.

The Victoria Indian Street Market is a beautiful area to visit and learn about the people who were brought to Durban in the 19th Century. You can appreciate the majesty of the mosques and temples; visit a landmark in Durban attractions, the Juma Musjid Mosque, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
