Peak season:

It can be hard to find cheap flight deals to Durban during the months of December through February, which is when the city experiences its peak tourism season. Durban’s Prickly Pear Festival, held annually in February, is a great event to attend and might be well worth experiencing, but keep in mind that this yearly festival (held in Nelson Mandela Bay) attracts huge crowds and might also be a reason for increased flight and accommodation charges.

 

Off season:

When the winter months arrive in Durban (between June and August), temperatures drop, and the city sees a decline in tourist activity. The winter months might therefore be a perfect time for you to find and book cheap flights to Durban. The off season in Durban has one booming period in which you should expect to be surrounded by large crowds: July. More specifically, the Vodacom Durban July, a prestigious horse racing event that takes place at the Greyville Racecourse and attracts roughly 50,000 spectators. If you wish to attend the event, keep in mind that you’ll have to book your flights and accommodation well in advance to witness this showdown!
