Shopping in KwaZulu-Natal

  • Shopping in Hluhluwe

    Ilala Weavers

    Sells a large range of Zulu handicrafts, plus there’s a museum and a local, slightly contrived ‘village’. It's a good place to pick up souvenirs and worth the coach crowds you may encounter.

  • Shopping in Durban

    Victoria Street Market

    This busy market, located at the western end of Bertha Mkhize St, is the hub of the Indian community. It offers a typically rip-roaring subcontinental shopping experience, with more than 160 stalls selling wares from across Asia. It's generally safe, but watch your wallet and don’t take valuables. Note: most shops run by Muslims close between noon and 2pm on Friday.

  • Shopping in Durban

    African Art Centre

    This not-for-profit gallery has an excellent selection of high-quality work by rural craftspeople and artists. It's a great place to pick up unique, ethically sourced souvenirs. In 2017 it relocated to the trendy Station Dr Precinct.

  • Shopping in Durban

    Ike’s Books & Collectables

    More like a museum than a bookshop, this antique-filled delight is chock-a-block with first editions and is everything an antiquarian bookshop should be. There is an emphasis on Africana in its selection.

  • Shopping in Durban

    Khaya Records

    Durban's hip elite hang out at this delightfully cluttered record shop. There is a coffee shop and expansive veranda where music is always pumping.
