Where to stay

In order to suitably accommodate meeting participants, block reservations have been arranged at a selection of hotels. You can view them here.

If necessary, participants may also find more than 3,600 hotel rooms located within a 10-minute walk of the Durban ICC. Browse the hotels recommended by the venue or simply start your own search on a popular website like Google or AirBnb.


How to move

The local transport authority runs a bus service called the People Mover that operates a city loop and a beach line. It runs from 5:00 to 22:00. For fares and timetables, visit Durban’s Muvo website.

You can hail a metered taxi cab through a reputable operator such as Ivory Cabs or Eagle Cabs. You must book by phone from a specific location.

Renting a car is one of the easiest ways to get around Durban, especially if you want to explore the surrounding region. Car hire operators include Avis and Hertz.

If you fancy a beachside cruise on two pedals, you can rent a bike (and beach equipment!) from Bike and Bean. The store doubles as a coffee shop.

COVID-19 measures

What to know

Visitors to South Africa must wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth when in a public place, including public transportation. All employers must adopt measures to promote physical distancing of customers and employees, provide hand sanitizers, and respect hygienic conditions to limit exposure to COVID-19.
