Everything you could possibly want is in this mall. There are also nice restaurants to sit and have a drink or eats after you've finished shopping or the mall closes. Hotels are nearby also.

This mall has it all. Every conceivable shop and cafe with a good choice of entertainment for the family too. More an entertainment destination than just a shopping mall. Great place when the weather is not nice for the beach and is readily accessible.

This is a very beautiful and very large mall. It is really too big to do some quick shopping, but it has everything you would ever need. In addition to the shops there is a nice food-court and an area with separate restaurants. We enjoyed visiting this place.

Lots and lots of shops and eateries. A good way to spend a wet day in Durban, but in fact this feels like any shopping mall in any large city. Brand names abound and if you want to spend some money, this is the place. There are also cinemas, water park etc. Safe and relaxed.
