Driving in Africa : Durban, South Africa

Durban is the third largest city in South Africa at a population with 3.5 million people

Durban is famous for being the busiest port in South Africa and Africa. It is also seen as one of the major centres of tourism because of the city’s warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches. [4]

It was resurfaced and widened between Ushaka Marine World and Moses Mabhida Stadium. Durban’s most popular beaches are also located along the Golden Mile. The city is also a gateway to the national parks and historic sites of Zulu Kingdom and the Drakensberg.making the combined municipality one of the biggest cities on the Indian Ocean coast of the African continent. The metropolitan land area of 2,292 square kilometres (885 sq mi) is comparatively larger than other South African cities, resulting in a somewhat lower population density of 1,513/km2 (3,920/sq mi).[5] Durban will host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. It has the highest number of dollar millionaires added per year of any South African city with the number rising 200% between 2000 and 2014.
