Hi. I live in Johannesburg but i have been to Durban many times. Its like a second home.
Like may other countries we all have our fair share of crime but its moderate unless you live in a gated community (Usually a townhouse or apartment). They are very safe to live in as many of them offer 24 hour security. The salary you have been offered is actually modest. You can live twice from your salary lol. You will be able to afford many luxuries such as medical insurance,life insurance and a maid and even eat out almost every night. So i do think you will an absolute blast in Durban because its amajor city on the beach.

Goodluck with your future success.
