Overview

uShaka Kids World is a haven for kids from the ages of 2yrs to 12yrs, designed with jam packed activities and interactive areas. Boast Africa's biggest jungle gym, to Crabby Beach (giant sandpit) to Polly's Paint Pen (painting paradise) and for our movie stars, Cast-Aways (show time stage area) it's fun from sun-up to sun-down.

Found some bargains here but really enjoyed the ambiance. Very steeped in African. Culture without being kitschy. Loved the mastics of tortoises, geckos, and coral snakes, and the 5hatched roofed pavilions. Safe shopping area.

We did not go into the water park but was able to walk through the shops and eat on the beach at uShaka Marine World. It is worth seeing when you make a trip to South Africa.

Perfect place for kids and adults likewise. Dolphin show was excellent. Kids still want to go back for the show. Pity it's only offered in December.
