Durban used to be referred to by locals as the last British outpost prior to 1994 when South Africa officially abandoned the apartheid system of government. The local ANC government wasted millions on renaming street names in an attempt to remove the colonial structure of the British colonizers. Without any recognition for the rich history and potential value of tourism in years to come, the cheap political point scoring of the corrupt ANC lead government squandered not only the future opportunities of the city, it squandered resources that could have been used to uplift poor and struggling communities.

The local Zulu language refers to the city as eThekwini. Taken from the Zulu language, “itheku” which means sheltered waters or what is referred to in English, “lagoon or bay”. South Africa is made up of 7 provinces, Durban is in the province of Kwa Zulu-Natal and is the largest city in this province, with the largest, busiest harbour in South Africa.
