Just 11 miles (17km) from Durban City, the airport handles both international and internal South African flights making Durban Airport an ideal car hire collection and return point.
Once you have your hire car, it is just 15 minutes on the M4 highway to Durban City, right on the North Beach.
If you are driving to Pietermaritzburg, take the N2 highway, then the N3 for the shortest route which will take about an hour.
If you are staying in Durban, take a short to drive to the Pavillion Shopping Centre in Westville (just 5 minutes on the N3). You can spend a whole day wondering through the 230 shops, 40 restaurants, 14 jewellery shops, Amusement Area, Skatepark and 12 Cinemas.
