A South African City Full of Life and Culture: Visit Durban in Your Motorhome

The busiest port in the country, the habour of Durban also attracts many vacationing South Africans, in fact, it's the most popular domestic tourist destination in the country. It shouldn't come as a surprise that many South Africans flock to this coastal city, with it's mix of natural beauty and culture. In fact, there is a distinctly urban vibe in the city and if you park your campervan rental in Durban you will find a myriad of experiences just waiting to be discovered. Art, design, museums, food and music are everywhere in Durban, not to mention great architecture. There are some wonderful examples of Art Deco and Victorian architecture in the city that have been lovingly preserved (head to the Berea and the Victoria Embankment for some of the best examples).

In the summer months you will be able to enjoy Durban's sandy beaches and water activities, from swimming to a sunset cruise. Don't miss the chance to walk along the Umhlanga Rocks and keep your eyes peeled for dolphin sightings if you do! If you're interested in learning more about the area's traditional culture, why not take in Phezulu in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, which is a great glimpse into the ways the Zulus live. You can also drive your motorhome rental to top game reserves nearby or take a lazy, scenic country drive to get a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. In the winter head to the snowy mountains on the outskirts of the city or visit the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, which includes a wavepool, go-karts, a skate park and an indoor climbing wall that stands 23 metres high.
