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.

uShaka Marine World makes for a great day out. The queues are a bit long though for slides, food etc. The aquarium was nice but I expected it to be bigger from the reviews. Good fun but wouldn't return again unless I lived in the...More

Amazing place for children and adults alike. The aquarium is SPECTACULAR and the water-world provides hours and hours of fun for everyone. It's not cheap, but keep your eyes open for out-of-season specials that are advertised from time to time. Avoid peak season as it...More

Our son 21, enjoyed it. Unfortunately I don't know what all the hype is about. People in Durban generally not friendly, uShaka no different. There were even staff laughing at an old man that couldn't walk properly. Definitely won't see me again.More
