Exciting packages to Durban for fun seekers

Emirates Holidays is offering a range of tailor-made packages to Durban, to mark the launch of Emirates airline’s new direct flights from Dubai to the fun seekers’ capital of South Africa, which started on 1st October.

John Felix, Senior Vice President of Emirates Holidays said: “Durban is a fabulous place to visit and is increasing in popularity because it has so much to offer in terms of things to see and do. Emirates Holidays’ special packages, celebrating the launch of Emirates’ first non-stop flight to Durban, make it easier than ever to travel to this new must-visit South African destination.”

Dubai to Durban made easy
A lively year-round holiday destination, Durban offers something for everyone – whether it’s nightlife, surfing, culture, shopping or just chilling out on the spectacular beach. There is a wide variety of things to see and do - check out the uShaka Marine World, a state of the art aquarium in a gigantic shipwreck; marvel at the magnificent scenery of the Drakensberg Mountains and the Valley of a Thousand Hills; visit the historic City Hall with the Natural History Museum; or go to the Sharks Board in Umhlanga for interesting and educational exhibits on sharks.

For something a little different, take a trip to the Zulu cultural villages, tour the townships, visit the beautiful Temple of Understanding, or visit Inanda, where Mahatma Ghandi lived at the time that the African National Congress and the Shembe religion were being formed.

Emirates Holidays is offering packages to Durban from Dubai starting from AED 5,638 per person. This includes flying Economy Class with Emirates airline, three nights accommodation at the Hilton Hotel in a Standard Room on a twin-sharing basis, breakfast, meet and assist on arrival as well as return private car transfers from and to Durban airport. Excluded are airport departure taxes.

Alternatively travellers can enjoy the same package but upgrade to Business Class, with prices starting from AED 16,702 per person.

Offers are valid from 1st to 31st October 2009.

Skywards members will receive up to 20 per cent bonus miles when they book hotel accommodation for a minimum of three nights. They can also redeem their Miles for Skywards Gift Vouchers, which can be used towards payment of exclusive packages from Emirates Holidays. Terms and conditions apply.
