British settlers at Port Natal on South Africa’s Indian Ocean coast give the name D’Urban to their village, established as an army camp eleven years ago. Benjamin D’Urban is the governor of Britain's Cape Colony on South Africa’s Atlantic Coast. The first order of business is to build defenses against an expected attack by the Zulu nation. Zulu King Shaka granted the settlers 6500 km² of coastal land in 1827, but relations have grown tense since Shaka’s assassination and British encroachment into Zulu lands. In 2023, Durban will be South Africa’s third largest city and largest port.
