InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Durban

Hello to all Americans in Durban! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Durban? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Durban which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: life in Durban means life in one of South Africa’s major tourism hot-spots. The important manufacturing hub is a multicultural city known for its long history as an important port city, the extensive beaches, subtropical climate, and surrounding nature reserves, its numerous street markets, and much more! With the mostly bus-based public transportation system and extensive road network, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in less central neighborhoods such as Morningside or even the more remote resort towns surrounding Durban, such as Umhlanga in the north or Amanzimtoti in the south, which are less than a 30-minute drive away from Durban’s center.

Although Durban has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Durban, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

An amazing community is waiting for you!
