Morningside is one of Durban’s most fashionable suburbs with an established restaurant scene and where sugar barons left a legacy of stately Victorian homes. The suburb is located high on a hill overlooking the Indian Ocean coastline and with views of the Umgeni River to the north, while neighbouring Windermere suburb has a bustling nightlife to appreciate. Durban’s beaches are a cycle ride away, as is the Durban Country Club and Moses Mabhida mixed-use stadium.
When visiting Durban, South Africa’s head of state resides in the century-old palatial Morningside estate, Dr John Dube House (formerly Kings House).
With majestic views, sprawling parks and a warm subtropical climate, Morningside attracts holiday makers pursuing an above average vacation experience.
