uShaka Marine World reviews
We had a great time, if you're not wanting to get wet there is a still a ton to do! Like the gondolas, the beach, reptile/dangerous animals exhibit and the amazing aquarium. We're from Canada and found the staff less than helpful, except at the aquarium they were amazing! Thanks to the women there, so insightful and awesome. Ticket prices were actually super reasonable and even the food prices were low. We'll be back with our swimsuits one day!
Obviously I’m coming in an off peak season so maybe my experience is not the best judge. Dolphin show was fun, animals were well trained but the overall act was very minimal. Feel like there’s so much more creativity that could be applied to give the show a world class but also a uniquely African vibe. Rest of the park was a bit average a few local shops and attractions. The aquarium was amazing love the whole shipwreck vibe love the thought put into it. The restaurant was not cheap but pretty good. Overall the kids will love it, but after experiencing a few places like this around the world I feel like the management team needs to get creative with in-house attractions, in house hosts, and better traveling performers that can roam within the park to entertain guests. I feel that with a lot of creativity and very minimal budget they could actually turn this place around with the right team breathing some fresh life into the place. But again it’s off peak season maybe I missed all the good stuff…
