Conference Venues Umhlanga, a little more about Umhlanga…
Umhlanga is a residential, commercial and resort town north of Durban on the coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is part of the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, created in 2000, which includes the greater Durban area. Commonly and erroneously pronounced (by residents and visitors alike) as Umshlanga (the correct pronunciation of “hl” in Umhlanga is similar to the Welsh “ll”), the name means “place of reeds” in isiZulu.
Umhlanga, specifically the former sugarcane fields of Umhlanga Ridge, has become the focus of development in the greater Durban area with many businesses relocating offices from central Durban (similarly to Sandton forming the new centre of Johannesburg), a move that has been criticized for “fragmenting the urban fabric” in Durban. In 2010, Durban International Airport was moved to La Mercy, near Umhlanga, and reopened as King Shaka International Airport.
It is well known throughout eThekwini for the Gateway Theatre of Shopping which is the largest shopping mall in the southern hemisphere. It has a relatively low crime rate and warm beaches which are patrolled by life guards throughout the day. Umhlanga is one of the fastest growing cities in South Africa – the population increased 57.5% from 15,387 in the 2001 census to 24,238 in the 2011 census.
