Moses Mabhida Stadium Attractions
Built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Moses Mabhida Stadium towers over the skyline, inviting citizens to come and explore. Soak in as much of Durban as you can from a 106m height in the SkyCar experience, allowing a breathtaking 360° view. For the more steel-willed, take a leap off the edge and bungee jump off the highest point of the stadium on the Big Rush Big Swing (officially named the world’s tallest swing by the Guinness Book of Records since 14 May 2011). Then there’s stadium tours (you can walk or use a Segway!), adventure walks, a Visitor’s Centre and the People’s Park to experience.
