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.

Enjoy Aquariums in general and this one certainly does not dissapoint. It is well set up and the tanks are all very well set up. Is in my opinion a world class facility that South Africans can take foreigners to with pride

No matter how many times I visit the aquarium I come away with a new admiration for the fabulous creatures of our oceans. We must keep pollution out of the seas so as to protect these wonderful animals.
