Ushaka Marine World - Review

Everything you could possibly require of a water theme park, the uShaka marine world provides. Boasting the fifth largest marine aquarium in the world, the park also hosts a waterplay park, a beach and an African themed village. The aquarium is the main attraction. A large number of sharks, rays and other large fish draw people from everywhere. These are after all, the world’s finest predators. And yes, you can get up and close with the creatures; for an extra fee, you’ll be able to go snorkelling or diving in a shark cage. Make sure to watch the seal and dolphin shows. A dryer but no less dangerous exhibit is the Dangerous Creatures section, housing crocs, spiders, snakes and scorpions. The water-parks main attraction is Africa’s highest and most thrilling water slide. If, after a morning of touring, playing and eating you just want to walk around, the uShaka beach and the uShaka Village Walk make for lovely strolling grounds, taking you through cafes, an African themes area and a large pier heading out into the sea. Every area has it’s own dining option, but we recommend the cool them restaurants in the Sea World. You’ll easily spend an entire day here.

Ushaka Marine World, Durban Reviews

  • Animals shows great family fun and teaching. And facilities are good and well serviced. Only issue is the food and beverage staff and quality. I get parks being strict on food and high than normal prices. But then at least have the decency to have efficient and polite service for the customers paying higher than normal pricing. Little to no common sense and effectiveness in this area

  • Great place for everyone in the family. Variety of water slides in the water park. Exciting creatures in the aquarium. Great variety of restaurants to eat at and many stores for tourists. Bathroom facilities available to wash up after water activities. In summer (weekends and holidays) it gets very busy so it's advisable to visit this place during the week when it's quieter to avoid long queues. But overall, one of my favourite places in Durban

  • Greatest place to have absolute pleasure and fun all day long! The Animal shows are an excellent learning experience for the whole FAMILY. The beaches are clean with white sand and blue seas. The restaurants serve great food and the whole atmosphere is one of a kind. I would recommend this place to EVERYONE

  • uShaka Marine World has many curio shops and restaurants/food stalls to choose from. The shark feedings are on Sundays at 14:30, but many other feedings, shows and experiences take place at various times over the weekend. There's something here for the whole family! A strong nautical theme is seen throughout the park. uShaka is definitely a must see destination during a trip to the Durban coast. Bring extra spending cash and a bathing suit for the water park.

  • Awesome destination. This place will keep the family busy for days. There is ample shops and restaurants. Then you have the slides and swimming area for young and old. The aquarium is amazing with allot of amazing species to view and great stories. You have the beach front connected to the golden mile. There's Moyos restaurant where you can walk out a 100m into the sea with amazing views, drink some cocktails or eat a burger. This is the place to visit in Durban. Have fun and be safe.
