I am planning to move to pietermaritzburg next year. Would you perhaps know if the drive from pmb to durban is something doable on a daily basis? I have been told that its easier to get a job in Durban than PMB. Your help will be greatly appreciated.Hi there,
sorry for the late response.
From what I know, that area is pretty good as it is close to the schools in the area. So it should be safe and convenient.
I'm from Durban and have lots of family in westville I've been living in cape town for the past 6 years. From what I know, based on the past and trips back home, that area is good.
However, with that in mind, Durban itself isn't the safest of places. You will have ur break-ins and "crime"in any area that you live in. I don't advise walking around freely as in that sense it may be a bit of a gamble. NO area is completely safe. But that area is one of the better ones.
You will be safe provided you have fencing, burglar bars and alarm systems. You just need to be aware of your surroundings at all times in general.
hope that helps.
