“Its Marine World with a Zulu theme”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

uShaka Marine is geared for the African family outing or vacation. I saw parents with children enjoying the shops, aquarium and rides. The rides are small in scale compared to USA.

What a great place, very nicely build and wonderful fish.

Absolutely recommended

“Very nice, but...”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The aquarium is well worthwhile a visit, but one has to buy a ticket that includes the seal and dolphin shows (R149.00), and they were a bit disappointing. Emphasis is on recycling, which is well necessary, but it is overdoing it a bit. The seal show takes about 45minutes and all in all you see less than 15 minutes of seals, the rest is talking in the form of a sort of theatre performance. The kiddies ground, with waterslides etc. costs more - a combo ticket for the two is R199.00. Other attractions such as the snorkel lagoon or the shark cage are extra. In my view overpriced.

“King Shaka Marine World Durban South Africa”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The experience was totally awesome. Yound and old would definitely enjoy visiting the aquarium and enjoy the water slides at King Shaka Marine World, Durban, South Africa. I loved every bit of it. There is nothing you would not like.
