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.

We had so much fun here. The shows were amazing and informative. The dolphin show was definitely my favourite! It can get a little crowded and I would suggest for them to limit the amount of people they let it. But overall a great outing!
