    Fabulous day outing and really enjoyed the dolphin show. Went with overseas visitors and a four year old and there was something for everyone to enjoy. Lots of interesting information without being overwhelming and helpful staff to give advice as well.
    Had lunch at the Cargo Hold and watched rays and fish while we ate which was also a treat

    10/10 my visit consisted of a mission to photograph many of the Fauna and Flora, most enjoyable and relaxing. Will certainly return there during the middle of Summer.

    Magnificent scenery, lush landscapes, fresh air.
    We took a lovely hike in the sunshine the fresh air was intoxicating and the beauty of the rushing stream below.
    The sky seemed to go on forever with awesome clouds.

    Had a very interesting reptile show and the chance to hold a snake. The tour guide Cameron was very knowledgeable and calm dealing with the snakes. Then went to the cultural center and watched some Zulu dancing and learnt about two huts and some information into traditional Zulu Life. Would have loved a little more info and insight into traditional Zulu life. Had a very delicious lunch at the Café on-site

    If you come in the winter you usually get a full day ticket for the price of half day. As adults you only really need a half day. Good facilities and new ques when we went. Recommend wearing a t-shirt or rash shirt if you visit in winter to keep warm between rides and on the lazy River.

    Well... What can i say! In comparison to the sharks and then the serenity of the Botanical gardens and wow does this Jump not just need nerves of steel but rather it requires nails and at that fingertips. All in All Together All @ once.

    This is a great place for an extended walk by the sea – the safest stretch is between the Sun Coast Casino complex towards the Ushaka Marine World with a wide walkway so social distancing is easy there are a number of coffee shops and restaurants to stop and regain your breath as it is quite a long walk if you do the full stretch – the surfers are back as are the sunseekers and I happy to say this is area is getting back to normal – sorry I meant to say the new normal.

    Nice centre, great restaurants for date nights. The barnyard is a must for couples. Lots of parking avaliable. Spacious, the casino is fun for beginners.

    Visited Mitchell Park Zoo after a long time and was surprised to see that it was kept in a good condition and the animals all looked healthy and well maintained. The price was very reasonable for youth and pensioners alike.
    We followed up with a Milkshake and scone at The Blue Zoo restaurant which was just as enjoyable. Service was good and reasonably priced.

    The Temple is beautifully peaceful, with not only the most stunning architecture but also, the strongest presence of the divine. If you're looking to escape the jungle and succumb to the peace and spiritually strengthening experience, you should find the time!

    We wandered through this market on our cruise ship bus tour. It was a little bit interesting but I did not buy anything. Nothing special.

    The wharf is not an attraction on its own, but you can catch some boat rides around the coast from here, it starts from 100R and upwards

    It was a nostalgic visit to a Durban childhood tradition...some of the models are a little worn, but overall it's fairly well maintained.
    My 6 year old niece loved following the electric train around the tracks, and watching the bridge lift to let the boats through.
    With an inexpensive entry fee, even a short visit is a fun experience.
