About Us


Location! Location! Location!

We could not have selected a better site for the Happy Hippo. Located right on the beach front and within walking distance of the entrance to uShaka Marine World Park.

Located at 222 Mahatma Gandhi Road (previously Point Road), Durban, the Happy Hippo is about as close to the action as you can get.

Situated within walking distance of Durban’s best beaches and on the doorstep of the UShaka Marine World, staying at the Happy Hippo means that you have easy access to many of Durban’s holiday attractions without the need for transport.

When you need to venture further afield or continue your exploration of South Africa, taxi, bus, train and air transport are all easily accessable. The airport shuttle bus from the new King Shaka airport picks up and drops off at our lodge. We are a main Baz Bus destination.
