Its where I stay and shop when on my annual visit

The shopping experience is excellent, the food outlets cover a wide range of foods and the Stay Inn is a great place to rest your head

Even the most discerning traveller's will find something to spend their money on at this centre! Fortunately there are some good coffee shops and eateries to revive you .. Shop until you drop stuff..

All the major stores and some are housed in this one place. And plenty of food choices. Lots of people too so be warned. Dress comfy for walking!

If shopping is your thing, this is the place for you. Just make sure you do not get lost when you go the first time. Very convenient, also with the large outside lifestyle stores.

It's funny I ha seen this mall grow from when it first opened to barely half of it full to now with a large array of stores which will certainly make sure you find what your looking for. My best advise is have some real comfortable shoes and a healthy budget lol.

This mall is equipped with everything you need. You could spend days in the mall going through all the shops. The layout of ygr mall is very nice and the directories are very helpful in trying to locate the specific stores you want to visit. There are lots of activities for the kids to keep them entertained.

Took my American lady to this mall and she was blown away! She was definitely shocked to see that SA had malls of such high standards and variety! Good day to spend in the mall if the Cape weather is not playing along to any of your sunshine satisfying needs.

Mall has a selection of shops and definately a must to see. The artwork in the mall against the walls and in the hallways are breathtaking. There is enough entertainment and restaurants to fancy your taste.
