Durban is a backpackers heaven. Lapped by the Indian Ocean with warm year-round swimming, sun-tanning and surfing, Durban is the third largest city in the country with the largest port in Africa. Lying between the sunny beaches of the South Coast and the game parks of Zululand, it is the gateway to the Kingdom of Zululand and the majestic Drakensberg Mountains. Here East meets West, First World meets Third, and Zulu, English and Indian cultures rub shoulders in spicy architectural juxtapositions that are sandwiched between vibrant markets, the Golden Mile and sprawling townships. There are many great backpacking hostels to be found throughout the city.

So jump in, take a rickshaw ride, bye yourself a love charm from a witchdoctor and then dance the night away...
