Anne’s Travel Tip

Visit the Moses Mabhida Stadium during your stay in Durban!

Durban is the largest city in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. It is also the third largest city in South Africa after Johannesburg and Cape Town. The city is famous for being the busiest port in South Africa and the city’s warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches.

When you visit Durban then make sure that you visit the most beautiful stadium of South Africa, the Moses Mabhida stadium. The Moses Mabhida stadium was one of the host stadiums for the 2010 FIFA World Cup and hosted teams such as the Dutch, German, Brazilian and Spanish national teams. Nowadays the stadium is still a busy hub with a multi-use function.

Explore the story of football in the Moses Mabhida stadium on one of the guided stadium tours. Walk on the pitch, visit the dressing rooms and see where the teams get ready before getting on to the pitch through the tunnel. Experience the stadium in the footsteps of a football player.

Not only is the stadium home to South African football club AmaZulu but it also offers visitors several exciting activities amongst the restaurants and shops. One of the things not to be missed is to get yourself a ticket for the Skycar. The Skycar will bring you to the top of the arch of the stadium. From where you have the most amazing views of Durban. A trip up with the Skycar will cost you only ZAR 55 per person.

In the weekend (at 10am, 1pm and 4pm) you can alternatively join on a more adventurous way of reaching the top of the stadium by taking the, guided, 550 steps to the top. This will cost you, at the moment of writing, ZAR 90 per person.

If you are a real adventure seeker then the ‘Big Rush, Big Swing’ might be something for you. With this big swing you will take a ‘swing’ in to the stadium by plunging off the 106 metre fourth platform of the arch. This, currently, costs ZAR 595 per person and is totally at your own responsibility.
