Durban is South Africa's 3rd largest city, and its busiest port. It is also a major tourism centre, a result of its warm subtropical climate and beautiful beaches.

It was in Durban that, as a young lawyer, Gandhi first employed non-violent civil disobedience, aiding the large Indian resident community's struggle for rights. Added to the indigenous Zulu heritage, the city's Indian culture makes for a city of fascinating msrkets, cuisine and performance arts.
