Durban travel guide

Portfolio Collection offers a selection of luxury accommodation in the buzzing coastal city of Durban - the capital of the KwaZulu Natal province of South Africa and the third most populous city in the country. Durban has its own unique flavour. Its hot, sub-tropical climate leads to long lazy days on golden beaches followed by steamy nights relaxing or partying among the many faces of this city.

Visit Durban for a cultural explosion of colours, sights, smells and tastes – it is home to a large Indian community and the flavours of the East influence the look and feel of the city- women in silk saris; the aroma of curry luring you into restaurants. You haven’t experienced Durban unless you’ve tasted a Bunny Chow – hot curry served in a hollowed out half-loaf of bread.

Durban is a great destination for surfers – unlike in Cape Town, surfers here can take to the waves in board shorts and stay out for hours – no need for wetsuits in this warm water.

  • Nature lovers destinations - Durban Botanical Gardens featuring the Orchid House, Jameson Park’s beautiful rose garden, Mitchell Park; Burman Nature Reserve, Japanese Botanical Gardens; Umgeni River Bird Park, Kloof Gorge; Shongweni Dam.
  • Shopping and dining – Florida Road in Morningside / Berea, Musgrave, Botha’s Hill in Hillcrest / Gillitts, The Pavilion Mall, Windemere Road and 9th Avenue in Greyville
  • Valley of a Thousand Hills – 25 min from Durban.

Our Portfolio of Durban Accommodation

With its wonderfully warm climate year round, Durban is a great winter getaway option as summers can be exceptionally hot and humid. Other coastal destinations around South Africa tend to have cold, wet winters but if you stay in Durban in winter you can be sure of pleasant weather and still enjoy the beaches, while avoiding the summer holiday crowds.

If you do choose to go in peak season especially over the end of year holidays book your Durban accommodation well in advance, and also keep an eye on what events are taking place at the Durban Conference Centre as large expos can result in a shortage of available Durban B&Bs, Guest Houses and Boutique Hotels.
