International delegates can also fly in through OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and connect to Durban via local aircrafts. This journey takes 55 minutes.

A range of bus and coach services are available in Durban. These include; Commuter Bus Services, point-to-point shuttles and long-distance coaches. All international car hire companies are represented in Durban with pre-event bookings allowed.
