On a rainy, cold day in Umhlanga we went to the second largest mall in South Africa to watch a movie, have a meal, do window shopping. A large variety of shops and entertainment available. Ample under cover parking available.

Excellent for shopping, dinning all together in one place. Plenty to see and do with a water park for swimming and surfing. Not sure if theatre is still at gateway but has a cinema.
