“Love it here ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I particularly like the dolphin shows, usually at least twice a day, and there is lots more to see. Very good for children.

“Love it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

What a great attraction. I have been to the water park twice and the aquarium five times. It is always a fantastic day out. I highly recommend for a day out. A tip if you want to go to both the aquarium and the water park is to go to one of the hotels along the seafront in Durban. Ask to buy the combined ticket from the concierge as it works out much cheaper.

A great family experience with a wide variety of restaurants and stores along with thrilling water slides. It has a world-class aquarium and is overall an amazing experience. It is a must-see for Durban-visitors

“Little Sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Top class.
I enjoyed everything shark diving is awesome.
Do not forget to do snorkeling , it will cost around 30 rand per person.
I spent so much time and money on other activities but the snorkeling was awesome. I think you can do that activity for even a day :-)

“Fun, fun, fun”

I am not a kid anymore, but uShaka definitely makes you feel like a kid again! So many water slides and fun rides - it is impossible not to have a ball!
