A major new theme park and entertainment development project is being planned for South Africa. Amazulu World will be a multi billion dollar themed entertainment and mixed-use destination development on the north coast of Durban according the Dubai based developer, Ruwaad.
The new project is set to be a master-planned community covering some 16,500 hectares of land. It will be the largest development on the African continent, according to the developer. Amazulu World will include an internationally branded theme park as well as a range of villages and themed areas.
According to Hayan Merchant, Group Chief Executive of Ruwaad, “Amazulu World will have a perfect blend of development zones. Among the key elements are Africa’s first world-class internationally branded entertainment theme park, as well as Africa’s largest shopping destination, Africa’s most comprehensive and advanced sports village development, Africa’s largest lifestyle community and Africa’s first dedicated education and health village; alongside a number of hotels, resorts and spas, a marina, a variety of residential offerings, community facilities, and nature reserves.”
With the continued investment in South Africa and the 2010 World Cup football tournament coming, the country was a natural choice for this project, according to Hayan Merchant: “South Africa does not only offer an excellent year-round climate and some of the world’s most outstanding natural beauty, but recent developments in the country have been pushing it to become one of the strongest emerging markets in the world.” The development will be built in phases over the next 25 years. The new South African development was announced by Ruwaad at the Cityscape Dubai 2008 property exhibition.
