All the Durban Info

All the important information you will need about Durban for the Fifa World Cup football is set out on Durban's Official site - just follow this link.

Our Guesthouse is about a 15min walk to the Stadium, but Durban's transport will swing into action  for the World Cup and special additional bus and mini-taxi routes have been laid on to get the fans from all around Durban there on time.

We have also prepared a Google map of the area and nearby restaurants and you can see this by following this link to help you get your bearings.

German Football Team fly in Style

The German national football team will arrive in South Africa for the 2010 World Cup in style as they will be part of Lufthansa’s first long haul flight for their new A380.

The special flight operated by Lufthansa’s new flagship leaves Frankfurt Airport on Sunday 6th June and will arrive in Johannesburg.

Germany plays Australia in Durban's opening World Cup game at our new Stadium on Sun 13th June.

Durban Transport Plan

Everyone in the tourism industry is delighted that Durban has launched a new Public Transport website in time for the World Cup Football event.
If you follow the link here you will be able to find bus routes and time-tables helping you get around the city.

We have also been hard at work at the Guesthouse and have put in a Guest computer with free internet access (in addition to the free wi-fi we have throughout the house) and on the desktop you are able to click on our Google Map and find restaurants, pubs and tourist info within 100 metres of the Guesthouse as well as directions to other places of interest and nearby shopping centres.

In addition we have installed a telephone for guest use with free calls to book a taxi or one of our favourite restaurants.
