Berea Travel Guide


Durban’s colonial past is very much evident in this suburb overlooking the city. Built on a ridge above the sea, it’s characterized by old homes with wraparound balconies, boutique hotels, and strips of fashionable restaurants. Durban formed the coastal hub of the British Colony of Natal, declared in 1843 after the annexation of the former Boer Republic of Natalia. In 1910 Natal combined with three other colonies to form the Union of South Africa. One of the most sought-after addresses in the upscale Berea suburb is Musgrave Road. Tree-lined avenues feature luxury homes and apartment blocks interspersed with parks, schools and sports clubs. The Musgrave Centre shopping hub is a major drawing card.
