Moses Mabhida Stadium

The state-of-the art stadium continues to attract guests long after the 2010 World Cup it was originally built to host. A SkyCar takes visitors to the panoramic viewing platform at the stadium's very top (walking up the several hundred stairs on foot is another alternative), and thrill-seekers must try the Big Swing - an impressive free fall swing named world's tallest in 2011.

Do & See

Durban's offerings extend far beyond beaches to a plethora of cultural pursuits, from historic homes-turned-museums of colonial sugar barons (think the Campbell Collections) to hip, grassroots art spaces taken over by young local talents (such as the BAT centre). Durban is home to an impressive marine theme park called uShaka, and frequently plays hosts to major cultural events, such as performances by its very own KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra and Playhouse Company, as well as international events such as the Mamas (MTV Africa Music Awards).
