Durban International Airport, which was previously known as Louis Botha Airport, has been replaced by King Shaka International Airport as the primary airport that now serves Durban, the third largest city in South Africa. Its operations started on 2010 but has already received recognition as one of the best airports in the world serving under five million passengers.
The airport can be found in La Mercury in the KwaZulu-Natal, 35 kilometres north of Durban. It serves direct flights for both international and domestic flights to neighbour cities and countries such as Cape Town, Dubai, East London, Mauritius, with even more prospective airlines and flights for expansion.
Durban, in a campervan
Aside from the Golden Mile in, the most famous attraction in Durban, the city is famous for architectural gems that are as good as attractions themselves. Moses Mabhida Stadium, a multi-use use stadium in the city is a good way to see the breathtaking views of the city and the ocean by climbing or going on the sky car trip atop. Located inside the stadium is the Big Rush Urban adrenaline, a thrilling activity where you climb up the stairs and jump off the platform on a bungee. The stadium was the host for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
For relaxation, you can meditate in the Mahasiddha Kadampa Buddhist Centre which offers meditation classes or stroll around in the various parks like Umgeni River Park, Durban Botanical Gardens and zoos like the Phezulu Safari Park, Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve and Mitchell Park. You can also take your campervan for a drive to museums like the Natural Science Museum or the history museum that is Kwa Muhle Museum.
