While Johannesburg is South Africa’s business hub and Cape Town is a nightlife and coastal paradise, the beachside city of Durban has plenty to offer that many travelers may not be aware of. Here are three Durban hotspots that you need to visit on your next South Africa trip.

uShaka Marine World

Located on Durban’s Gold Mine and overlooking the Indian Ocean, this world-renowned water park is a must-see for the whole family. Open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, uShaka Marine World has plenty of slides, an aquarium, and an outdoor shopping center.

Moses Mabhida Stadium

Built to host the 2010 FIFA World Cup, this 62,000-seater stadium is renowned for its grand arch and all-weather playable pitch. In addition to watching a range of sporting events and concerts, you can also test your courage by bungy jumping off the stadium’s roof.

Durban Botanic Gardens

If you’re looking to catch your breath after a busy day of touring, then this scenic route is a perfect place to relax. This local bio-hotspot boasts an array of flowers, trees, lakes, and even the occasional concert.
