When there aren’t high-stakes football matches going on, Moses Mabhida stadium is far from being dormant between games. Instead, this beautiful stadium, with its iconic archway, is the unofficial adventure capital of Durban, with a catalogue of adrenaline-filled activities and enriching tours of the grounds. Here’s our pick of the best things to do at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
The Adventure Walk is great if you’re up for a slow-paced workout. Walking up the 500 steps will give you panoramic views of Durban from way up in the air, with beautiful stretching views of the city and the Indian Ocean. The walk itself will take about 20 minutes. About 70m up, you will have a great view of those brave enough to take on the Big Swing, as they take a mighty plunge.
Walk in the footsteps of your sporting heroes with a tour of the mighty Moses Mabhida Stadium. Explore the state-of-the-art change rooms, where players past and present have contemplated before games, psyched up at half-time and celebrated after the final whistle blow. You will also walk through the tunnels and step onto the spongy, green pitch and picture tens of thousands of adoring fans cheering you onto field. Towering above the pitch are restricted, VIP-access-only suites, where presidents, celebrities and the rich and famous have watched many a nail-biting match.
Big Rush Big Swing
Officially the world’s tallest swing according to the Guinness Book of Records, Big Rush Big Swing is undoubtedly one of the biggest thrills you can have in the city, if not the whole of South Africa! As the world’s only stadium swing, you will jump into the 106m void above the football pitch, before swinging into a 220m arc.
