Presenting Partners

The City of Durban welcomes the International Jazz Extravaganza, a jamboree of global jazz connoisseurs and a platform to showcase our City’s rich Jazz heritage.

We are confident that we will host another spectacle of an event, because more than the music, visitors will also get an opportunity to experience our world class tourism offerings.

We extend a warm and special welcome to all our guests and visitors who will be coming to Durban for the International Jazz Extravaganza.

Hosting the International Jazz Extravaganza gives us a platform to showcase the beauty of our City, our assorted tourism products and the rich jazz heritage, that shapes our beautiful City.

Durban is South Africa’s premier travel destination and boasts stylish hotels, trendy restaurants, world class shopping; top nightlife and a shoreline of golden sands and beaches.

The combination of the soothing sounds of jazz music and our world class tourism products will give our visitors and locals an ultimate Durban experience.

Welcome to Durban, the warmest place to be!
