“Great outing, especially for kids”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Great outing for the family. Lots to do and see. Quite pricey for locals, and service at the restaurants inside Wet n Wild is very bad.

“Creative and relaxing”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was easy to walk around to the various points of interest.
There were good & diverse shops, restaurants as well as the "water world" attraction with the sharks, beautiful fish etc.

The penguins were adorable too!

Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to visit other places, but I will next time I'm in Durban!

“Ushaka Marine World”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is a must for me whenever I am down visiting family on the South Coast.

We always get there early, buy our combo ticket and plan the day. This time we started with the penguin feeding then moved on to some water sports - the lazy river is one of my favourites and my mom loves the extreme slides (never advisable in a bikini).

Then we did the dolphin show and took a break for lunch. For lunch there is a range of options and we decided on Moyo on the pier. Not as extensive a menu as Moyo in the park but still pleasant and it offered some great views of the harbour, beach front and the sea.

Back in to the park for some more swimming, the seal pantomine and a stroll through the aquarium which is very cleverly designed in a ship and has some great photo opportunities (like sitting on a toilet with the fish swimming behind you).

There are also a broad range of shops for those who enjoy retail therapy and on one ocassion we had the pleasure of watching a dance competition at the entrance.

Reviewed November 30, 2012

Its a must in Durban. Take at least one day to visit and enjoy the space. Take the clients with they will enjoy the time. Visit during summer and do not forget to bring the swimming trunks and take a chance to swim with sharks.
