uShaka Marine World
The uShaka Marine World, situated at the southern end of the Golden Mile, is one of Durban’s newest attractions. Centrepiece of this fun park is the Sea World Aquarium. Huge, almost 500 metre long fish tanks were integrated into the replica of a sunken cargo steamer from 1920. They impressively display the diversity of life in the ocean off South Africa’s eastern shores. Naturally the sharks are an important focus: nowhere else in the southern hemisphere can one find a more comprehensive collection of these ocean predators. The renowned Oceanographic Research Institute also has its head office in uShaka Marine World.
