Want an adventure on your doorstep? uShaka Marine World is the most exciting place to visit in the city of Durban and is everything you’ve always looked forward to when it comes to fun by the sea!

With so much to offer visitors are sure to keep coming back to Africa’s largest marine theme park again and again! Boasting the 5th largest aquarium in the world, Sea World is anchored by the majestic “Phantom Ship,” an old 1920’s Cargo Ship. Stroll through underground viewing galleries and be astounded by our tanks which are home to many species of marine life and sea creatures.

Visit Sea World where you can enjoy fun-filled seal shows at the Seal Stadium and the Penguin rockery where endangered African Penguins reside.

The recently launched Sea Animal Encounters Island - an island adventure like no other where you can meet a dolphin or seal, feed a sting ray, experience an underwater adventure in the Ocean Walker, come up close and personal with Sharks or snorkel with exotic fish at the snorkel lagoon. Be sure to visit the Dolphin Stadium and get to know our dolphins. There are two dolphin shows daily at the Dolphin Stadium with Gambit, the largest bottlenose dolphin in any oceanarium in the world, the star of our shows.


After which spend a few hours at Wet ‘n Wild, where you can experience the thrill of the many fun rides. There’s also plenty of chill time on the Lazy River adventure river ride. New to the park is the scintillating body tornado water slide – the first of its kind in South Africa – that will blow you away!

The ultimate live act is Dangerous Creatures - a wonder world of all that is slimy, scaly and creepy.  This is a “Zanzibar” warehouse filled with exotic reptiles saved from a shipwreck.

uShaka Kids World boasts one of Africa’s largest jungle gyms with netted mazes, tunnels, stairways, link bridges and swings. Designed for youngsters aged between 2 and 12, this adventure island includes loads of entertainment and play areas for the little ones.

Last but not least, make sure you experience uShaka’s latest attractions, that of the uShaka Rope Adventure Park, which consists of a series of rope bridges, obstacle courses, climbing nets, zip lines and crossings with the longest continuous belay system in Africa.
