Built in 1928, Audacia Manor is a beautifully restored family home tucked away in a cul de sac on the slopes of Morningside, an upmarket suburb of Durban. Inspired by English 'home-county' design, the silky wood panelling, generous verandas and gently landscaped gardens of Audacia Manor offer you a warm, old-school welcome.

The manor house is yours to enjoy so make yourself at home as you sink into comfortable sofas in the spacious, cool drawing room with a good book, or explore the herb garden off the Ascot Conference Room. Then it's time to head out and visit the amazing Ushaka Marine World, Moses Mabhida Stadium or Blue Zoo. Alternatively, venture onto Durban's Golden Mile and relax on the beach or try a bit of shopping, nightlife and cuisine - Durban style.
