The Oyster Box

The Oyster Box hotel is located on the Indian Ocean in Durban, South Africa.  After hearing from others about their amazing experiences at this hotel, we decided to start our next week-long safari with two nights at the The Oyster Box.  It was the perfect place to relax, get over jet lag, and gear up for the bush.

Ian's Take

  1. Walks on the promenade
  2. Great golf is a short drive away at the Durban Country Club
  3. Drinks taste better from the roof-top bar at the Oyster Box
  4. The curry-lunch buffet at the hotel is worth it.


  1. Reservations are a must for outdoor seating for breakfast
  2. Reservations are a must for lunch at the hotel
  3. The roof-top bar gets very busy fast.
  4. Is a year around destination but the ocean cools down in the winter.
