A great day out with the little ones. Quite demanding and really fun rides. Have been to Ushaka a few times but sadly, it is becoming very tatty. Chunks of concrete broken in the shallow pool, (left laying on the floor of the pool). Food is typical of an overpriced, low quality African theme park. I ordered a "Russian on... More

If you want to move to the times where you were young and wild you must visit this place. Mamba slide was the best for me.

If you want to feel like a kid again visit uShaka Wet 'n Wild! We love the very high slide and racing down on the tubes but the toilet bowl has to be the best!

You got to love all the slides and the tube swimming tour while seeing the safely secured sharks in a glass. The live music band next to the swimming pool was lovely as we swam and dance to the lovely tunes. Everything in this area is just close by. Restaurants sells nice food and so is the food stalls inside... More

Whats not to love.. except you should be able to bring your own food as the selection is terrible if you are a healthy person. If you like Hotdogs and Burgers at Airport lounge prices then its for you otherwise get a big breakfast in before you go and say no to the man lining his pockets with your hard... More

What a disappointment The pools are dirty and the baby pool is the worst Is the staff not aware of this or do they simply not care

We had such fun at the Ushaka water park. Slides and rivers were well manned with life guards. A safe distance rule was always adhered to by staff when allowing visitors onto the slides. All slides are well maintained. There are a number of pools to swim and relax, or you can go on a slow tube ride down the... More

An amazing water park with places to relax and a phenomenal aquarium. Also very interesting activities. You can zip line, go diving or go tubing.

Various slides and rides ranging from a slow tube ride in the duzi river, around uShaka (make sure to bring your waterproof camera), to tube racing and the highest slide in Africa. There is something for everyone and you guaranteed to get soaked. Best time to go is at 9am when it opens, during the school day - this way... More
