Durban Expat Guide
Embark on Your New Life in Durban
Durban is home to a diverse lifestyle and culture; it's a vibrant urban environment with breathtaking scenery and friendly people. The center of Durban has a busy, exciting atmosphere with hundreds of things going on at once, perfect for the active expat seeking an all-encompassing experience of Africa. For those looking for a more relaxed lifestyle, the beaches and suburbs of Durban are home to beautiful scenes and fantastic places to eat.
The city is soaked in a fascinating history, with Nelson Mandela casting his first ever vote as a free man in Durban in 1994. It is home to the world's tallest bungee swing and the world's oldest, largest ultra-marathon, knows as the Comrades Marathon. The adventurous city is also home to plenty of diving, surfing, and shopping opportunities, with something to suit every type of expat. South Africa is often seen as a potentially dangerous country, but Durban is one of its safest cities and has excellent private security.
