UShaka was created over 14 years ago to kick-start urban regeneration and boost for development in an area of Durban’s beachfront that was previously ignored. As a result, it has enabled the creation and growth of related hospitality businesses and contributed towards the overall growth of tourism in the city and the province as a whole.
Khumalo said that uShaka prided itself in offering a combination of entertainment and outdoor leisure activities that are suitable for all ages and are aimed at both the international and domestic tourism markets. She said that uShaka hoped to continue to earn its place as one of KZN’s top businesses and brands in years to come, and would build on recent awards.
Khumalo indicated that this award will be celebrated with all uShaka staff who have over the last two years committed themselves to improving their quality of service.
