King Shaka International Airport is clearly signposted, and easily accessible via the N2 from Durban. Once you have picked up your Avis hire car, from our outlet found on the ground floor just outside the arrivals terminal, you have the freedom to explore all the nearby attractions as well as those found further afield.
The highlights of the North Coast are many and varied, offering opportunities for relaxation or exertion as you choose. Umhlanga and Durban have become important creative and business centres of the province. Likewise, there are many high-quality accommodation options if you are spending some time in the area.
Those who prefer to count their pennies can check in to Shapes of Africa Guest Lodge, just 11 km from the Airport. If you prefer the ultimate in luxury, then opt for the 5-star Fairmont Zimbali Hotel, 16km away.
Close by, Ballito, Umhlanga, Shaka’s Rock and Umdloti are thriving holiday destinations, with a mild balmy climate and numerous attractions to keep you occupied while you are exploring the area in your Avis hire car.
From micro-lighting above landscapes clad in sugar cane, to diving the depths in search of ocean wrecks, the North Coast is a bustling bundle of fun. Shop up a storm in the malls of these holiday towns, try your luck at Sibaya Casino, hit the beaches or join the friendly locals for a seaside drink overlooking a coastline where dolphins come to play.
Whatever your preferences, you are sure to find endless opportunities available to you with your Avis hire car.
