Here at Moses Mabhida Stadium, we’re all about school holidays! We know that even the thought of it can be intimidating, but we’re pro’s at it so here’s the ultimate guide of how to keep kids of any age entertained this October – #MMStadium style!

1. The I Heart Market

The I Heart Market takes place on the first Saturday of every month and is the perfect place to kickstart that holiday vibe. Treat the kiddies to cupcake decorating, delicious ice creams and fresh lemonade and let them run or bike in the big open spaces surrounding the market. Stop by some of the great stalls and browse unique kiddies toys, furniture and clothes.


2.  People’s Park

The name says it all. It’s a park that is well loved by the people of Durban! Take it easy with the family, stretch your legs and picnic on the grassy surrounds whilst the kiddies enjoy the state of the art jungle gyms and playground facilities. For the older kids, the wide open spaces surrounding People’s Park are perfect for biking, longboarding or skating. Give me all the deets!


3.  People’s Park Cafe

Fancy a nice family brunch or lunch? People’s Park Cafe has it all. The kiddies menu has great variety as well as the most delicious milkshakes you will ever taste. Who doesn’t love a good milkshake? Let the kids run free after their delicious treats whilst you sit back on the deck, relax and update your apps on the free wifi. Sounds like a plan!

4.  STS Sports

STS Sports is a specialist sporting store based at Moses Mabhida Stadium (next to the Visitor’s Centre) and is the place to go if you want to hire a bike for a cruise around the stadium or down the beachfront promenade. The bikes are hired out at an hourly rate and they offer a range of bikes for the entire family! Click here if biking is your thing!STS-Sports-2

5.  SkyCar

A must do for every Durbanite and also the best place to take the coolest family selfie, ever! Cruise up the SkyCar in a mere 2 minutes flat and step out onto the platform to enjoy the beautiful views on offer. If you’re up for it, why not try to spot your neighbourhood? Definitely something for the kids to talk about when they get back to school! Sign Me Up!


6.  Stadium Tour

For all those little history buffs and sports stars in the making! Step out on to the pitch like your favourite captain does when he leads his team into the stadium and discover which international and local sporting heroes have stood in the same spot you have during the all-access stadium tour.

Yes Please!

For the older kids, (10 yrs +) there are two additional attractions such as the Adventure Walk and the Segway which are both an equally cool way to explore the city. One from the top, and one on the ground. The Adventure Walk gets you a legit certificate (bragging rights!) and the Segway is just too much fun to not do. Try the Combo, which is an Adventure Walk up the stadium arch and a cruise down on the SkyCar for only R120 pp!
