Luxury car hire in Durban is ideal for touring the Golf Coast

Are you arranging luxury car hire Durban for your tour of the Golf Coast? The Golf Coast is made up of a collection of magnificent golf courses spread over KwaZulu-Natal's South Coast. This area has long been a popular holiday destination because of its warm days, sunny weather, temperate sea waters and year-round summery climate.

Flora and fauna

The Golf Coast is green and verdant, bursting with indigenous subtropical vegetation and incredibly scenic. As you drive down the coastline you’ll be captivated by sweeping, panoramic views of the sparkling Indian Ocean, rolling green hills of sugar cane and an awareness of the holiday atmosphere that seems to infuse the air. Conservation areas have proved excellent for preserving natural flora and fauna. You’ll see the fruits of this as you walk the courses and spot an abundance of birds and some curious wildlife along the way.

Golf touring

The renowned golf courses which populate the Golf Coast are dotted along the southern KZN coastline, making the most of the weather, natural vegetation, wildlife, birdlife and waterways. Touring the courses requires a lot of driving and time in the car, which is why luxury car hire Durban is so useful. A spacious car with air conditioning, a decent sized boot (for your clubs), and a good sound system will make your travelling time far more enjoyable!
