Overview
WWe are in Durban Central, 500m from South Beach, 300m from UShaka Marine World and 1.5km from the city center and serviced by a door-to-door airport shuttle bus. The Happy Hippo is decorated in a contemporary African ethnic theme; utilizing the vibrant colours shown through the South African flag and its beautiful people, and tastefully finished off with an industrial flavour. Whenever a new guest arrives, they always experience that wow factor! Everything on our premises pertains to the culture of our vibrant nation! Our location is unrivalled 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 and bars. The area has a few night clubs for those night owls. Our rooms are decorated in different themes and are named with a famous South African term, so one gets to learn about this exciting nation and what it has to offer. We also have a roof-top bar called ‘The Globe’, as we get to meet people from all around the world! We have #SishanyamaSundays, which are our BBQ/Braai days. We also have the #lastThursdays event at our #rooftopdurban where we celebrate young, upcoming stars through music, comedy and art. We offer free WiFi and have a curio shop which only supports local crafts and small business. 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. Please note that we strive to ensure that all the operators that we choose to refer you to are either from upliftment programs that help grow our communities through tourism, thus creating sustainable tourism for all! #WeDoTourism
