Umhlanga Ridge Car Rental Mini Guide

Umhlanga Ridge is one of the best places for shopping along the Indian Ocean coast of South Africa. Most people fly into King Shaka International Airport and then hire a car for the drive to the top hotels of Umhlanga Rocks, below the ridge that hosts the purpose-built retail, commercial and residential centre.

There are many domestic flights flying into Durban Airport and international flights such as UAE, UK, Mauritius, Turkey and Namibia. Once at the airport, travel into Umhlanga Ridge is not straightforward with no trains making connections. Most people choose to prebook a rental car with Rhino to collect from Durban Airport and drive to Umhlanga Ridge.
