While vacationing near Durban we visited the Ushaka Wet'n Wild. Since it is immediately adjacent to the Ushaka Aquarium in makes a great package at an affordable price. The children and young people love Wet'n Wild especially the many different water slides. If you want something a little slower pace the "lazy river" is sure to please you. Do go... More

A ride for everyone, great vibe. You need towels and sunscreen. Queues are well managed and the walk to reach the rides doesn't seem to be as steep and long as at other parks

Great rides and a lovely variety! My kids just love coming here. The rides are varied and tons of fun. Food is pricey as are drinks, but you aren't able to take your own in which is the only major downfall. But as water parks go, it has something fun for all age groups.

This has been my 5th time here at uShaka and every time I've had a lot of fun. We went now in Peak season and it was still not overwhelmingly busy. The only negative aspect about the park is the quality of the food that they have. We always go out of the park and eat outside and then return... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the rides especially the lazy river ride.Most of the lifeguards were friendly and helpful, but we did spot a guard fast asleep later in the afternoon. We were very disappointed to find some of the facilities have deteriorated, there were pieces of broken tiles in the big pool. Overall the place is very clean and the rides... More

This is the only place in durban I'll give a 5 star rating. The wet and wild is really world class and caters for all ages. The water slides and rivers were well constructed and engineered. The aquarium has one of the largest variety of sea life in the world and off course the shark tank is world famous. Where... More

Although at first we felt we would be a bit too old for this (late 20s) it was actually a great day out and lots of fun (if you like water slides) - it does get busy in the afternoons so my advice is to do Wet n Wild in the morning before the crowds arrive, and then the marine... More
