View from New Durban Stadium

December 30, 2009

It was a bit of a gloomy day when we went to visit the new Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban shortly after it was officially opened, but we still got some great views from the top of the 106m high arch (taller than the Statue of Liberty!).

The ‘Sky Car’ can accommodate 25 people as it travels up the northern leg of the arch to the observation platform at the top.  For the more adventurous there is the option of walking up the southern legs of the arch (550 steps, though).

Other activities at the stadium precinct include tours of the stadium (including the presidential suite, changing rooms, etc), and a soon-to-be-opened bungee jump from the top of the arch.

Although the stadium has been officially opened and has hosted several Premier Soccer League games (the latest being between Kaizer Chiefs and Sundowns), fitting out of the shops, restaurants and bars around the precinct is still in progress, as are the tree-lined avenues that provide access the the beach and the CBD.
