We have visited this mall frequently over the years and it provides you with an above average shopping experience. We would not choose it as our #1 choice Mall in the Durban area, which in our opinion is won hands down by the Pavilion. Gateway does has one advantage and that is its outdoor entertainment area - very innovativen

I live not far away from the Gateway shopping mall. I get everything I need from the mall. Man is this mall gigantic or what. As a family we always frequent the mall,be it for shopping or just chill,catch a movie etc. The mall has everything to offer for all the different age groups.

I travel to Umhlanga Durban every 2 weeks, and every visit I spend time at Gateway. I have not once had a bad experience there. It is always clean, and there are so many activities to keep children and adults alike entertained. There are plenty of restaurants and take-away fast food places, and coffee shops to suit every palate. There... More

With over 400 Stores and almost 100 restaurants, one can spend a whole day there and not realize the passage of time. And don’t worry if you have missed your morning exercise, the Shopping Complex stretches one km from end to end. And to relax, there are some 20 movie theatres to choose from ! My wife and younger two... More

Large and airy, great sales and amazing choice of food. Perfect for everyone. If you are shopping for specific goods, it's a good idea to park centrally as the mall is more than a kilometre in length and some planning in that regard is required.

Yes, in this country we have our share of rainy or poor weather and being on holiday does not exempt you from this. However, having the Gateway just a stones throw away from Umhlanga makes all the difference. Not that one would want to spend your holiday in-doors, but there is enough going on at any time of the day... More

Gateway is massive! It has lots of shops to buy from, it has cinemas and entertainment areas for the kids. It is convenient in that there are so many shops to buy from but I do find it can be difficult to get around as its designed in one long line. If you are looking to shop then visit there... More
