The Cargo Hold Restaurant | Durban, South Africa

The 'Cargo Hold' restaurant is built in a replica of South Africa's legendary ghost ship 'The Phantom' and masterfully incorporated into the famous uShaka aquarium, where floating marine predators - sharks. The ship's stern is dark and cool, so the best marine life, including the famous sharks, will be passing by the windows as you enjoy a meal. The Phantom was seen sailing south into Durban harbor last century. It was seen passing Durban's Bluff headland at dusk with only one blue-green light swinging in the fore.

The ship's stevedores waited for the vessel, described as a stern ship with a black and scarlet funnel and two masts, to enter the harbor, but it never did. It returned to the harbor several weeks later, but this time it was closer to shore. It did not respond to any signals and it flew no flags. Some claimed it was lost while others believed it was on secret missions. The boat was referred to as The Phantom by locals despite not being able to reach any conclusions.

The ship has an authentically battered, rusty and weather-beaten feel to it.
