Welcome to uShaka Marine World

uShaka Marine World

In January 2004 Sea World closed its doors to the public and reopened as uShaka Marine World, which has become the largest marine theme park in Africa. The park is tastefully themed with African imagery and has five zones offering entertainment, dining, a variety of shops, water slides and access to uShaka Beach. Wet 'n Wild offers eight water rides, ranging from heart-stopping, adrenalin-pumping rides to lazy activities for the less adventurous. Sea World has an aquarium with thousands of fish, reptiles, and aquatic mammals on display; a dolphinarium that performs regular musical shows; a penguin rookery, and interactive activities like snorkelling and the 'shark walk'. The Village Walk features the new Dangerous Creatures exhibit, with spiders, snakes, frogs, scorpions and other poisonous creatures. Rayz Kids World gives kids a place to burn off energy with massive jungle gyms and climbing structures. For adults, Moyo offers an oasis at the end of the pier with a brand-new double-story bar right over the water. uShaka is in South Beach, so you can walk there along the beach, or take a bus or kombie. The area can be dangerous, but once inside the park security is good and it's relatively safe.

South Africa has 11 official languages, including Afrikaans, English, Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho. English is widely spoken.

South Africa's currency is the Rand (ZAR), which is divided into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and the larger hotels. ATMs are widely available (there is a daily limit for cash withdrawals) and major international credit cards are widely accepted, except in petrol stations where cash is required. Visitors should be vigilant when drawing cash from ATMs, as con artists are known to operate there. Travellers cheques and some foreign currencies are accepted at larger hotels and shops, but commission is charged, otherwise all commercial banks will exchange them.
