Directions to uShaka Marine World
A trip to Durban will certainly be incomplete without a visit to uShaka Marine World. uShaka is a combination of insanely exciting water slides inside Wet ‘n Wild, colourful and intriguing fish in the aquarium, entertaining and enthralling shows at the dolphinarium, shops galore in the Village Walk, as well as numerous eating experiences scattered all over the area. All of this is set on the Durban beach a hop, skip and a jump from the warm Indian Ocean. Sunny days and the warm South African climate accompany this exuberant display of African entertainment, making it a huge tourist attraction for the Durban area.
The uShaka Marine World’s Wet ‘n Wild is an attraction just on its own. Thrilling, fast paced rides keep children and adults entertained for hours, while they soak up the KwaZulu Natal sun. Tube rides and supertubes whip patrons around on an adventurous journey that is packed with laughs, squeals of delight and adrenaline pumping action. For the real dare devils, the plunge freefall (the highest slide in Africa) will up your heart rate to bursting proportions, literally taking your breath away as you fall over the edge. The Duzi River Adventure is for those who want to take it slow, and there are plenty of sparkling blue pools to while away your time in.
Lockers make it easier to keep track of your valuables and belongings, so there is literally nothing to be concerned about when splashing around in the wonderful Wet ‘n Wild at uShaka, except for sunblock! Food and drinks are very easy to come by in all sectors of uShaka with fresh seafood making a prominent appearance on the menus.
The dolphinarium at uShaka Marine World plays host to a wide range of elaborate shows with exceptionally well trained sea mammals as the stars of the shows. Dolphins, penguins and seals all make their Hollywood appearance at uShaka, keeping patrons coming from miles and miles around just to view their antics in person. The greatest celebrity has to be Durban’s most loved dolphin, Gambit, who is in his 30’s is the pride and joy of uShaka Marine World.
The Island Activities (Avis Snorkel Lagoon, Ocean Walker and Xpanda Shark Dive) offer visitors the opportunity of getting up close and personal with sea turtles, incredible, colourful fish and all sorts of endearing creatures of the sea. There is no limit to the visitor experience, and no words that can aptly define the levels of enjoyment that it provides.
The uShaka aquarium is based on a shipwreck theme, and entices people from all walks of life to come and view its offerings. Walking around the facilities you will see many people gawping in amazement at the sheer beauty, the amalgamation of colour and the indelible grace and flawlessness of the sea creatures contained therein. Photographs can never do the uShaka Marine World aquarium justice, and it is truly something that should be seen and experienced by all Durban tourists and locals. On your next visit to Durban, ensure that uShaka Marine World is at the top of your to-do list.
