Property Description

The Happy Hippo is decorated in a contemporary African Ethnic theme; utilizing the vibrant colours shown through the flag and the S.A. people, and tastefully finished off with an industrial flavor. Whenever a new guest arrives, they always experience that wow factor! Everything on our premises pertains to the culture of this vibrant nation! Our rooms are all different and are named so one gets to learn about this exciting nation & what it has to offer. We have a roof top bar called the Globe, as we get to meet people from all around the world! We offer an internet cafe or wireless & have a curio shop which only supports local crafts & small business. Local is Lekker! (great in Afrikaans). We offer our guests the convenience of booking all your day trips, safari's and car hire at our reception, all in the name of making your stay an unforgettable one.

Our location is unrivaled as we are right next to Ushaka Marine World, the largest marine themed park in Africa, and so close to the beach for those wanting to enjoy the sea, whether it be surfing, kayaking, sailing or just sun bathing! The Park offers an array of shops, restaurants & bars. The area has a few night clubs for those night owls.

Please remember that the top things to do in Durban, which are very synonymous, are, trying a bunny chow, or catching a Rickshaw ride or visiting the famous Indian market. Since the 2010 world cup held in S.A., we now have a cable car ride to the top of the Moses Mabidha Stadium, which brags beautiful views of the city & its beaches! Also, the convenience of getting off a plane at the new King Shaka International airport does door to door drop off's hourly at a fraction of the price of a Taxi! Please remember that our efficient & friendly staff, are always on call to help

Latest Review

" Stayed at Happy Hippos for 3 nights in a twin private room. The place is so close to the beach and the uShaka resort there was lots tondo in the near vicinity. The main part of the town was a fair walk away but there is a bus service close by if needed. Facilities good and the staff were phenomenal. Something to note, Intrepid use Happy Hippo as their Basix accommodation for one of their trips. So it's good to be of quite a good standard. "
