The summers in Durban are beautifully warm, humid and tropical. People can expect to hit the beaches from October until as late as May. January and February are generally the hottest months where temperatures can climb into the high 30s.
True to a tropical climate, the region receives most of its rain during the summer months in short, heavy showers which are a welcome relief from the heat. June through September is generally accepted as winter time, but the temperatures are still wonderfully moderate making Durban a popular escape from the cold of Gauteng.
