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.

A most interesting performance by porpoises for everyone, young and old, was offered to visitors to this popular holiday resort in KwaZulu-Natal. The complex has a number of food kiosks, ranging from the hottest Indian curries to less cruel junk foods.
