I like the place because is not far from CBD.
The lush green suburb of Glenwood is conveniently located minutes away from Durban’s metropolis and overlooking its harbour. Glenwood has undergone a complete rejuvenation of the suburb’s old Victorian splendour merging seamlessly with new and exciting hotspots.
The suburb affords the holiday maker an opportunity to relax in a quiet neighbourhood, yet located only a brief stroll away from fashionable restaurants, art galleries, trendy boutiques and elegant clubs.
Glenwood is only a short drive way from the numerous attractive beaches along Durban’s shoreline.
Things to do
There is a wealth of interesting things to do in the surrounding areas of Glenwood. Here are a few of the best:
Enjoy a warm swim or some surfing at one of the many Blue Flag beaches stretching along KwaZulu Natal’s entire coastline.
Take a walk to the bright green painted Fresh Paint Gallery in the suburb to view the assortment of fascinating African art forms on display.
Fashionistas from all over the country flock to Durban’s Greyville Racecourse to attend the Durban July, the country’s richest horse race and premier fashion event. Aside from the Durban July, the venue hosts 12 other championship races during the season.
A visit to the Durban Muthi (medicine) market is a must. Gain an understanding of the various potions, consult with an Inyanga (Herbalist) for natural medical treatments, see a Sangoma (Traditional Healer) for insights into your future and don’t leave without buying a pair of sandals fashioned from old car tyres!
The natural heritage site, Pigeon Valley Park, has various small mammals roaming the park and is a birdwatcher’s paradise.
Housed in a beautiful Victorian home, the Phansi Museum showcases a large collection of local art, traditional crafts and a stunning display of the ceremonial dress of most South African tribes.

Guests escape the noise and bustle of lodges by opting to stay in either fully self-catering or bed and breakfast cottages. Self-catering cottages are a home away from home and come fully equipped with everything guests need. Most self catering cottages also come with a cleaning service, Dstv, and a private patio/entertainment area. Guests who opt for bed and breakfast cottages enjoy their own private patio/entertainment area, luxury amenities, Dstv, and cleaning service. There is often a small kitchenette, if guests wish to do a little cooking, and a relaxing lounge area. Cottages are ideal for families, small groups of friends and couples wishing for a more private retreat.
