Durban and KwaZulu Natal are popular tourist destinations. During your stay at The Square Boutique Hotel & Spa, the following attractions and activities are simply a must:
uShaka Marine world
uShaka Marine World is one of Durban's most loved attractions. It boasts a re-creation of the shipwreck of 1930 and has fantastic wild water rides and slides available for young and old alike. In addition, there is a stunning aquarium, recognised globally for its impressive dimensions and residents, and a number of restaurants. The regular dolphin shows are always a favourite, as is the beautiful beach along which uShaka is positioned.
Sun Coast Casino
The Sun Coast Casino measures an impressive 6000 square metres and boasts 50 game tables and 1200 slot machines (including Blackjack, Punto Banco, Poker, Roulette and Dice). Private gaming rooms, eateries, bar services and the Salon Privé all make for an exclusive experience of fun, excitement and, hopefully, riches.
Another characteristic feature of Durban is its approximately twenty registered rickshaw-pullers, which conduct fun tours along the bustling beachfront. These rickshaw men are adorned in traditional headdresses, beads and decorations and are known for their ebullient natures. This is definitely one of the most novel ways to see the Golden Mile of the beachfront.
Victoria Street Market
Victoria Street Market is just brimming with stalls, which sell a variety of goods, from baskets and jewellery to items made out of brass and wood. There is also an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables for sale in here, making for a truly cultural experience. Durban has a particularly high population density of Indians, some of whom use this market to sell genuine Indian spices. These flavours and aromas make any curry a success.
Natal Sharks Board
Umhlanga's Sharks Board is situated just off the North coast and is fantastic for families. Multimedia presentations on the wonders and mysteries of these feared fish are effective for education, but are also fascinating to visitors. After the presentation, guests have the unique opportunity of watching the dissection of a real shark.
Botanical Gardens Durban's Botanical Gardens are situated in Berea and are open every day. These gardens are home to a plethora of stunning plant species, including various herbs, Cycads, orchids and more. In addition, there is a garden specifically designed for the blind to appreciate and a charity tea garden. Enjoying refreshments and snacks within these surrounds is a great way to unwind. The tea garden is open from 09h30 to 16h15.
