Attractions and Travel Hints

uuShaka entranceShaka Marine World
The entertainment park, 16 hectare in size, on Addington Beach has two main sections: uShaka Sea World - an enormous aquarium complex with dolphinarium and seal stadium - and uShaka Wet 'n Wild - an expansive adventure water park with huge pools, waterslides, canals and much more. For both sections one either buys separate entry tickets or pays one fee for a combined ticket. Because the tickets don't come cheap and the park has a lot to offer and closes at 5 pm, one should rather get there in the morning with lots of time ahead.

Very popular are the Dolphin Shows in uShaka Sea World, which are presented several times every day at theAbsa Dolphin Stadium and take about an hour. They are followed by performances with trained seals in the Seal Stadium. One shouldn't miss the gigantic Sea World Aquariums, which have been skilfully integrated into the wreck of a sunken ship (a replica). The daring can dive down to the sharks in an open cage and see them at close range. Sea World also offers a snorkel lagoon.
uShaka Village Walk
To visit this third section of uShaka Marine World is free of charge. It is a shopping mall with several souvenir and curio shops, boutiques, fast food outlets and bistros. The Village Walk was laid out on a 10 metre high platform, so that you have views of the sea and the entertainment park alike.

uShaka Marine World is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm. Tel: 031 3288000.
