 A City of
 Many Facets


 T
          he Zulu name for the coastal city of Durban is
          ‘eThekwini’, translated as the place “where the earth and
          the ocean meet”. It is situated on the east coast of South
          Africa, on the shores of the Indian Ocean, and extends to
 the Valley of 1000 Hills.

 Durban has a mild, subtropical climate with sunshine for an
 average of 320 days a year. The year round sunshine and diverse
 natural environment makes Durban one of the country’s top
 holiday destinations, with pristine beaches, subtropical forests
 and game reserves in close proximity.

 Durban offers a range of accommodation from beachfront hotels
 to lodges, guesthouses, self-catering apartments and B&Bs. There
 are a myriad of shopping malls, markets and street bazaars as well
 as restaurants, bars and music venues that stay open late into the
 night.

 Durban has a busy harbour that handles much of the sub-
 continent’s international trade, and is South Africa’s second most
 important economic region after Gauteng, with well developed

         industrial, commercial and financial sectors. Industries include
         automobile assembly, metalworking, machinery, textiles, iron and
         steel, chemicals, fertiliser, foodstuffs, agriculture and tourism.

         With its excellent road, rail and communications infrastructure,
         the city of Durban was chosen by FIFA to host seven 2010 FIFA
         World Cup™ games, including a semi-final. The iconic Moses
         Mabhida Stadium was built especially for the event. The King Shaka
         International Airport, located north of Durban’s city centre, is a
         new facility that offers transit, accommodation, shops, restaurants
         and banks.

         Durban and Surrounds
         The Durban Metropolitan area covers 2297km² (887miles²),
         stretching from the Umkomaas River in the south to Tongaat in
         the north, and as far as Cato Ridge in the west. It has a population
         of approximately 3.2 million people.

         City Centre
         The historical heart of Durban is located in the city centre where
         the museums and City Hall can be found, as well as buildings that
         reflect the city’s colonial architectural heritage. The city centre is
         bordered to the west by the Indian district, where eastern foods,
         spices and other products can be found, to the south by the harbour,
         and to the east by miles of uninterrupted beaches.

         North of the City
         As the city extends north alongside the Indian Ocean, there are
         holiday towns such as Umhlanga and Umdloti, with beaches,
         restaurants and shopping districts, surrounded by rolling hills of
         sugar cane and indigenous bush.

         Inland from the beach lies Inanda, one of Durban’s big, sprawling
         townships. It was in this township where Mahatma Gandhi spent
         his formative years, and where former president Nelson Mandela
         cast his vote in the country’s first democratic elections in 1994.
         Knowledgeable tour guides can offer insight into the community
         and its history.

is characterised by unspoilt beaches, nature reserves, shopping
malls, restaurant districts and residential suburbs. It is a popular

           urban’s people reflect a rich cultural diversity of African,
           Eastern and Western influences. When the first Europeans
           settled in Durban in the 1820s the Zulu people were already
           here. The Indian people were brought in in the 1880s as
indentured labourers to work in the sugar cane fields, and were
followed by traders and business people from the East. Today Durban
is a cosmopolitan African city, home to people from all over the world
but retaining that strong African-Indian-European colonial heritage.

Languages and Religion
•       The majority of people living in Durban speak Zulu as a first
        language. English is widely spoken and is the main language
        of business. A variety of other languages, including Zulu,
        Afrikaans, Hindi, Arabic, Gujurati and Xhosa are spoken. There
        is also a sizeable immigrant population in the city and you might
        encounter German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and French.
•       The population is 68% Christian, 2% Muslim, 1.5% Hindu and
        about 28.5% indigenous beliefs and animist.

Top Attractions
The Muti Market
Durban’s ‘Muti’ (traditional medicine) Market allows an insight into
the world of traditional African medicine and healing practices.

         Important Religious Places
         •      The Jumma Musjid Mosque in town is the largest mosque
                in the southern hemisphere and can accommodate 5000
                people.
         •      Built in 1969, the Hare Krishna Temple of Understanding in
                Chatsworth is simply beautiful. Designed in the shape of a
                lotus plant, its spires, surrounding moat, pillars, murals and
                mirrors attract many visitors.
         •      The Emmanuel Cathedral opened its doors in 1904 and finds
                itself amidst the hubbub of the inner city. The building is a
                landmark in Durban and was once a centre of intense political
                activity in the mid-1980s.

             Many of South Africa’s most powerful and influential women
             received their education at this school.
         • King Shaka Museum at KwaDukuza (Stanger): Displays and
             exhibits thoroughly document the history of the people of
             southern Africa, from iron-age farming communities to the
             rise of the Zulu nation and the rule of Shaka, the most famous
             Zulu king.

Shembe Festival
The Shembe Church follows a mixture of Christian and Zulu
cultural beliefs, and is well known for its festivals and ocean
baptisms.
• A Shembe religious ceremony is held in July at the Ebuhleni
    and Ekuphakameni Shembe settlements, a short distance
    from the city centre.
• Thousands of devotees gather on the top of a mountain to
    participate in hypnotic, trance-like song and dance celebrations
    in full traditional regalia. At these events the followers of
    Shembe blow for hours on the haunting Shembe horn, the
    inspiration behind the now famous vuvuzela which is played
    by fans at football matches throughout South Africa.

Take a ride on a Rikshaw
Rikshaws were introduced to Durban from the East in the early
1900s to serve as a tourist attraction and as a quick and easy
means of transport around the growing city. Today, a fleet of these
two-wheelers pulled by men with colourful outfits and outlandish
headgear still operates on the Durban beachfront. Visitors can take
a ride on a Rikshaw along the six kilometres of Durban’s beach-
front.

Art Galleries
Durban is home to a variety of art galleries that exhibit a mixture
of contemporary art, traditional arts and craft as well as the work
of celebrated South African artists.

KwaMuhle Museum
Once the office of the notorious Department of Native Affairs, the
KwaMuhle Museum provides a vital link with the city’s apartheid
past. Inside the building are a number of powerful displays, which
provide a fascinating insight into the life of South Africa’s then
“second class citizens”. The displays deal with topics that challenge
the onlooker to interpret their convictions, and to reassess their
understanding of South Africa, past, present and future.

         Fishing
         Kayaks, or fishing skis as they are known in Durban, are the best
         craft for catching fish in the Indian Ocean. This form of angling is
         especially popular on the outer reefs off the coast of Umdloti.

         Dolphin and whale watching
         The warm waters of the Indian Ocean are home to schools of
         bottlenose dolphins which move up and down the coast all year
         round. Humpback whales (and occasionally southern rights) can
         be seen off the coast from July to November.
         • You can view whales from high points along the coast and
             occasionally from the beach, whereas dolphins are often
             visible just beyond the waves.
         • A number of boat tours operate out of Durban, Umhlanga,
             Tongaat, Umdloti and Umkomaas, offering trips out to sea to
             observe these creatures up close.

         An annual phenomenon which takes place along the Eastern Cape
