We had a baby shower at the African Peninsular for my daughter and it was awesome. The setting overlooking the ocean is beautiful and the decor & service was great. Snacks were delicious & plentiful & I would highly recommend this restaurant for any function or just a meal with friends.

The African Peninsula has beautiful rooms. And some of them views to match. The breakfasts were great. Dinner could be enjoyed very conveniently on the premises in the restaurant. The restaurant staff was very friendly.

Stayed there over Christmas, rooms are well sized, comfortable and clean. Air conditioner and good view of the sea. Good breakfast included also. It's a 2 minutes drive away from a public beach. Only issue was bath trap leaked but we used the shower instead.

on a short business trip to Durban I had the pleasure to stay at African Peninsula Guest House.

We are perfectly situated in a relaxing tropical environment but close to all the amenities of a city - shopping, business, industry, Golf Course & a wide variety of entertainment. We are almost in the heart of the city but it feels like we are on a tropical island!We are perched on the edge of the Indian Ocean and enjoy stunning sea views from dramatic storm clouds, to serene sunrises, dramatic whale sightings, playful dolphins in the surf, tranquil blue & turquoise water on a hot summers day, thundering waves that delight our surfers - the ever changing mood of our sea views are a sight to behold!To sit on your private deck and experience the sounds of the ocean and our natural life that surrounds us from the hum of the Christmas beetle, the shrill of the yellow billed kite, the rain cry of the purple crested Lurie, the chatter of the monkeys ..... it all connects you back to roots & refreshes your soul.We also offer a unique restaurant with stunning sea views & delicious stunning cuisine prepared by our full time chef.We look forward to being of service to you. ... more   less
