uShaka Marine World
After having heard so many wonderful things about uShaka, the decision was final. We would take the kids and experience this as a family.
One of Durban’s most popular attractions, uShaka Marine World is truly an experience. It is divided into several attractions, the most popular being uShaka Sea World and Wet n Wild. All of this is linked by a large number of restaurants and curio shops as well as the reptile section “ Dangerous Creatures”.
uShaka Sea World
This park consists of different attractions, the most popular being the Dolphin Show. Most of the dolphins at uShaka have been born there and they are quite remarkable. The show is very educational, teaching young and old about the importance of recycling, and how dangerous certain items (like balloons and plastic straws) can cause these majestic animals to either get very sick or die as they swallow them by wanting to play with them. They also have the Seal Show, and the Penguin and Shark feeding times.
Several opportunities are also available at the “close encounter” where they offer shark dives, snorkel lagoon, the ocean walker and the meet a dolphin experience. The oceanarium itself is built underneath an old shipwreck. The entire underground is themed like an old sunken ship. The marine creatures they have on exhibition include anything from sea horse, jelly fish, turtles, sharks, rays and more. You could spend hours just sitting and taking in all this under water beauty.
Wet n Wild
A water based park were everyone can have fun. Several super tubes and slides intertwine and make this an attraction not to be missed. One of the attractions which we thoroughly enjoyed was the river ride which takes you through the marine theme park and past the shark tank!
