Why Durban?

Durban, is a beautiful coastal City, filled with diverse cultures, sun-kissed beaches and luscious forests. It is a tropical paradise! Durban is home to the delicious Bunny Chow, the world’s tallest bungee swing at the Moses Mabhida stadium, the busiest container port in Africa, the world’s 5th largest aquarium “Ushaka Marine World”, the breath-taking Golden Mile (a stretch of beach that runs 6 kilometres from Ushaka to The Blue Lagoon), and is one of the top surfing destinations in South Africa! Durban is a very hospitable city and welcomes creatives to express themselves freely, whether it is through art, fitness, business or religion. It is in this setting that YWAM Durban invites you to discover the truth of God’s word and to be equipped to know God and to make him known – even in the most challenging of religious contexts. If you are seeking to deepen your intimacy and relationship with God in a place where you will feel at home and empowered, then YWAM Durban will be the place for you to do your DBS!
