ABOUT THE HOST CITY
Bustling Durban is the hub of the province’s business and industry and pulses with all the energy of a major port city. Durban is often referred to as South Africa’s Miami Beach and is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the world with luxury hotels abound.
The port of Durban, known as Durban Harbour, is the largest and busiest shipping terminal in sub-Saharan Africa and one of the tenth largest worldwide. The port handles up to 31.4 million tons of cargo each year and is the fourth largest container terminal in the southern hemisphere.
Durban is blessed with balmy weather all year round, making it a perfect holiday paradise. The beachfront is bordered by holiday accommodation and 5 Star hotels and luxury apartments, all of which have an idyllic view of the Indian Ocean.
KwaZulu-Natal is South Africa's most diverse province, offering grand mountains, fine tropical beaches and exceptional Big Five wilderness areas. KwaZulu-Natal is a marvelous destination, as it offers so many unique attractions and natural regions within relative close proximity to one another.
KwaZulu-Natal, a coastal South African province, is known for its beaches, mountains and savannah populated by big game. The safari destination Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, in the northeast, is home to black and white rhinos, lions and giraffes. Durban is an Indian-influenced harbour city and a popular surfing spot. Cultural villages around the town of Eshowe showcase the traditions of the indigenous Zulu people
Washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) with its subtropical coastline, sweeping savannah in the east and magnificent Drakensberg mountain range in the west, generously caters for just about every taste imaginable. Known as the Kingdom of the Zulu, KwaZulu-Natal is a melting pot of African, European and Indian cultures. This province boasts two World Heritage Sites – the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park and the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park.
