Durban skyline

The skyline of the coastal city of Durban in KwaZulu Natal. Most of the skyline is dominated by hotels as the city is a popular coastal playground in summer. After South Africa's successful hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the word on the street is that Durban is going to bid to host the Olympic Games either in 2020 and 2024.
Tongue in cheek footnote: I still personally much rather prefer my home town of Port Elizabeth as a beautiful, scenic, clean and safe coastal destination *smiley face*


  1. I hear from my sister who lives that side of the world that Durban got such a good write up in the Washington Newspaper...she was so pleased as she says Durban never gets the tourists like Cape Town does.

  2. haha, not that you'd be biased or anything. ;) Cheers!

  3. Great shot of Durban! Perfect balance of coast and skyline! (The water contrast with the city is great!!)

  4. The beach there was nice. But I have to say, I thought Durban was rather a dirty city. They'd have to clean up their act to host the Olympics.

    Maybe I'm biased after loosing my camera to the Indian Ocean there.
