King Shaka International Airport airport transfers ferry both domestic and international travellers to Durban central, outlying suburbs, up the north coast, down the south coast and inland.

Durban airport transfers are available to the Ethekwini Durban Metro, the Durban beachfront, the Dolphin Coast and Hibiscus Coast, and nearby Durban attractions such as uShaka Marine World.
Most of South Africa's major car rental companies have offices located on site at the airport. Many of these agencies offer a door-to-door, airport transfer service. These transfers are best booked in advance when planning your trip.
If you'd rather travel in luxury from the airport to your destination, try one of the private, luxury transfer services available.
There are numerous shuttle services that operate between the airport and the metro. The Magic Bus shuttle service offers scheduled rides and a door-to-door service. The latter is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
King Shaka International Airport lies 35km north of Durban, which makes transfers to the metro via the N2 freeway relatively quick. If you're travelling to the Dolphin Coast or Hibiscus Coast, plan for a 45 minute to 2-hour journey, depending on your destination.
Durban and surrounds boast a number of excellent hotels within easy driving distance of the airport. Try the Beverly Hills Hotel in Umhlanga, the Hilton Hotel in Durban, Hotel Izulu in Ballito and the Zimbali Boutique Hotel on the Dolphin Coast.
