Vasco Da Gama’s Port Natal was renamed Durban in honour of Cape Governor Benjamin D’Urban, after Zulu chief Shaka gave the land to the British in 1824. Today, it is South Africa’s principal harbour and the holiday capital of KwaZulu-Natal. Most attractions are on the Golden Mile, and central Durban also offers historic buildings, museums, theatres and exciting markets.
