It is an entertainment and hospitality centre offering a wide range of accommodation from swish beachfront hotels to themed lodges, guesthouses, self-catering apartments and homely B&Bs. It is also a bustling commercial and manufacturing centre connected to the business capitals of the world, and is built around one of the busiest ports in Africa.There is an abundance of breathtaking scenery just beyond the city. To the west lies the verdant Valley of 1000 Hills with its nature reserves and cultural villages. A little further the Big 5 game reserves are just a few hours’ drive away, while to the west the mighty Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park / a World Heritage Site / beckons.To the south is the Sapphire Coast, an endless stretch of sub-tropical paradise dotted with holiday townsTo the north lies the bustling coastal town of Umhlanga, packed with hotels, restaurants and beautiful beaches.Perhaps it’s this blend of culture, art and environment that makes Durban so unique.

Green Hub

Durban’s ‘Green Heart’ – connecting people with nature. A focal point for the Durban Green Corridor is The Green Hub – an innovative, sustainable and environmentally – responsible building at Blue Lagoon Park, housing a nature-based tourism and sustainable living information, education and promotion centre.

The Green Hub also serves as the base and trail hub for Durban Green Corridor (DGC) which operates canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, bird watching and cultural tours up into the uMngeni Valley, inland to Inanda Dam and on further to iSithumba in the beautiful Valley of a Thousand Hills. For those less adventurous you can also simply go to one of the many DGC sites along the valley and enjoy some of the best picnic spots in Durban surrounded by breath taking natural beauty – cliffs, dams, waterfalls, valleys, hills, a winding river and so much more.

The Green Hub is an eco-tourism information and environmental education centre located at the beautiful uMngeni River estuary.


uShaka Marine World

The world class uShaka Marine World, situated in Durban, South Africa, opened its turnstiles to the general public on April 30th 2004. Close to three years in the making, uShaka has fast positioned itself as a key attraction on Durban’s Golden Mile, offering a world of entertainment, excitement, fun and uniqueness.

uShaka has bought together cultures, like no other place in Africa – into a safe, secure and clean environment that resonates the sound of fun, laughter and the spirit of togetherness.
