Westville at a glance

The great thing about Westville is its accessibility to Durban, whilst still managing to remain a quiet and beautiful residential suburb.

set amongst rolling hills, gardens peppered by meandering streams, and tree-lined streets that bring you even closer to attractions like the Pavilion shopping centre and Pietermaritzburg.

Westville has always served as a gentrified, slower paced suburb of Durban. homes here are set on large properties, most of them with precipitous driveways of some description because of the hills, and it has remained affordable through the property boom that has hit the country.

The Westville campus of the University of KwaZulu Natal is situated in the suburb and, aside from being a rather pretty campus, also boasts a Hindu temple and an Islamic place of worship - a reflection of its multi-cultural student body, who come here to study science, engineering, humanities and social science, among other degrees.
