Hello to all,
I am planning a trip to Durban in September. I am from the northern US. I have read some of the information here and it was all very useful. I was considering staying in the Balmoral near the beachfront. I am a bit cautious because of the "not safe at night" statements. I really cannot determine how bad this is.
Where else would be good but also reasonable? I plan to visit Gateway and any other tourist attractions. I would like to go to the inner city and learn as much as possible about the city and culture. I have met a few friends there and they reside in Durban North and Phoenix.
Car rental--Is this necessary? Are there any personal tour guides available?
Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
