Durban Travel guide
Durban : Michelin's recommendations
With its 3.5 million inhabitants, Durban, located on the Indian Ocean in KwaZulu-Natal, may be the most representative city in post-apartheid South Africa. This is where the term “rainbow nation”, coined by Desmond Tutu, takes on its full dimension: ultra-modern buildings rubbing shoulders with colonial houses, and a powerful economy combined with immense poverty, a source of great social tension. Don’t miss the beaches, historic centre, Indian quarter and Botanical Garden.
