Exploring Durban in your rental car

Finding your way around Durban is quite easy and although the roads are very well sign-posted, a good map or GPS Sat Nav is highly recommended for first-time visitors.  You can hire one at the Durban Airport car rentals offices.  Most of Durban’s tourist attractions are located along the beachfront and nearly all the popular hotels are to be found here.  Be sure to visit Sea World for a marvellous day out with dolphin and seal shows, shark encounters, excellent restaurants and incredible marine life to be admired. Durban has some world-class golf courses and golfing enthusiasts better bring their clubs! 

Exploring further afield in your Durban Airport car hire

The North and South Coasts of Kwazulu have dozens of beaches, one after the other, to explore.  The sand is clean and water is warm and there are great waves for surfers …bliss!  South of Durban you can drive down to Margate, Southbroom and Ramsgate – all lovely coastal holiday villages, or let your Durban Airport rent a car take you north, to one of the many Big 5 game reserves that can be reached in an easy 90min drive from the Airport. Visit a Cultural Village and a crocodile farm along the way!

When it is time to bid farewell to the home of the Zulu tribe, what could be easier than to drive yourself back to the Durban airport hire car company and drop off your rent a car in Durban Airport.  No taxi fares, no luggage hassles, just convenience!
