Durban in June-August

Jump to last reply

I'm doing an internship in Durban this summer, and have SO many questions.
First, where to live? I'll be working just south of the CBD, in Albert Park. I've heard that area is suboptimal, so where can I live that's close enough but safer.Any good websites for finding rentals?
Second, what are the alternatives to renting a car all summer? I've heard it's hellaciously expensive. How is public transport? taxi service? Is ther a possibility of hiring a driver? If so, I'd much rather use the money to improve someone's life than to drive to and from work.
Third, I'd like to take my 6 y.o. daughter with me ... is that workable? And how in the world can I find child care for her for part of the time?
Fourth, is it the case that I should basically just plan to stay in after dark? Getting lots of divergent messages.
Thanks.
