I was happy with this place. Obviously it’s not as big as say Gateway but there are plenty of great stores if you’re looking to pick up something from Africa. ushaka is a great place to visit so might as well hit the shops.

Lots of restaurants and curio shops, but worth the visit to relax. My highlight was the dangerous creatures, and the side shows you find in the open spaces. At the entrance as we came in was a Zulu dance on the go, with drums and...More
