Gateway is regarded as the largest shopping centre in the Southern hemisphere. It is located in Umhlanga alongside the N2 highway, north of Durban. The shopping mall officially opened in 2001.

Gateway is billed as a `Theatre of Shopping` aiming to offer visitors much more than an average shopping mall. There are a wide range of shops, including internationally known fashion brands.

At the lower level are two giant supermarkets. As well as a huge selection of shops, department stores, there is a cinema, an IMAX cinema, a theatre, art gallery and a large food court.

Gateway also contains a surfing wave house, a skate park designed by Tony Hawk, the world’s highest climbing wall, go-kart track, arcade and children’s rides.
