uShaka Marine World

This uniquely themed aquarium is noted to be one of the ten largest in the world, exposing its guests to exotic aquatic life and interactive experiences. Illustrating Durban’s history as a likely destination for shipwrecks, the aquarium guides visitors on an exploration of old shipwrecks as they experience the world beneath the sea. Guests can enjoy an open ocean tank, snorkel lagoon, ‘swim with the dolphins’ experience, and several other specialty exhibits. uShaka Marine World is also home to the South African Association for Marine and Biological Research.
