Highlight for kids!

We loved the water world and the aquarium at uShaka marine world. The kids had hours of fun on the slides and the beach was a short walk away after we left the venue.

What a fun day for the whole family!!! The two teenagers spent the whole day at the Water Slides and joined us for the Dolphin show. Our 6 year old loved the Aquarium, Seal show and Dolphin show and then spent the rest of his time on the Water Slides.

Seal and Dolphin shows. Although short, the seal show is probably the most informative. The Dolphin show is very much that, dolphins jumping out the water and performing
