DURBAN / UMHLANGA
While the Western Cape has Cape Town, KwaZulu-Natal has Umhlanga. Situated just North of Durban’s bustling city centre, Umhlanga has risen from a sleepy hollow of sorts, to become a cosmopolitan centre of living for families, businesspeople and holidaymakers alike.
The warm waters of the Indian Ocean invite you in for a swim in the sunshine, and the convenient location of everything you need for easy living within what locals call “The Village” mean you’ll probably never want to leave once you’ve been here.
Surfers love the rough and tumble seas, and sun-lovers enjoy the sandy beaches on summer afternoons. A vibrant nightlife that’s made up of top-notch restaurants, nightclubs and pubs make it easy to dance the night away, while a short drive north will take you to Sibaya Casino and Entertainment World, for a little spin with Lady Luck.
