With 3.5 million people. Durban is South Africa’s third largest city and a popular tourist destination thanks to its sub-tropical climate, pristine beaches and warm ocean. Its port is one of the busiest on the continent and there’s always something happening in the city. Durban is known as the home of the Zulu nation, but its British colonial veneer and large Indian populace make it a cosmopolitan experience like none other.
