Welcome to Time Out


The ultimate guide to Durban


The best of Durban

11 best things to do in Durban

The best things to do in Durban are obviously influenced by the phenomenal weather that the city's residents get to enjoy. Imagine a place where you’re warm all year round. Where winter just means a jumper at 8pm and where summer is a vibrant burst of colour and culture. This is Durban, home to Africa’s largest shopping mall, the world’s fifth largest aquarium and the Zulu nation. This is where the young and young at heart go to wade in balmy seas, stand on bright yellow beaches and experience a night life that has a beat of its own. Want to see the ocean’s finest followed by a feisty bunny chow and a walk in a lagoon? This South African town has got you covered. Done something on this list and loved it?
