Sea World
A genuine salvaged shipwreck provides the authentic structures that incubate this indoor and outdoor salt-water sea life exhibit which is one of the five largest aquariums in the world. Dolphins flip for this biggest dolphinarium in Africa while seals clap in applause. Squish a starfish at a touch pool or feel under-dressed as you admire waddling penguins in formal 'tuxedo' attire at their rookery. Glass separates your nose from the snouts of one of the biggest shark collections in the Southern Hemisphere. Seven gigantic aquariums, 500m themed viewing tanks and 25 live marine exhibits provide an underwater kingdom above ground. Behind the scenes operational tours available.
