Something special for Durbanites

We went out for dinner last night in celebration of my sister's birthday and parents' anniversary.We went to the Upper Deck at uShaka Marine World for the buffet.

It cost about R80 each, but you can eat as much as you want, and there's surprisingly variety in terms of the food available: seafood, curries, stews, lasagne, SA braai meat, assorted salads and roast veggies. And the desserts rock as well.

What's even cooler though is that the buffet includes night time entry into the aquarium. It's a completely different experience after dark (I've been twice during the day). The aquarium is completely deserted, you can hear all the creepy sound effects, and with the exception of the turtles, the fish seem far more alert and responsive. It was highly enjoyable, and something different to do for a birthday celebration.


What's more important to note is that in February, there's a special offer in place if you didn't know about it. Every Saturday and Sunday, the first 500 people will get into the Aquarium for free (JUST the Aquarium, NOT the Wet 'n Wild). That's a saving of R92 for adults and R62 for children.

They've been advertising this on East Coast Radio. I haven't been to uShaka in a while - eish, didn't know it was that expensive just for the aquarium. I think it's gonna be VERY packed knowing Durbs. Definitely a must-go for those who haven't been - It's a beautiful aquarium.

I think the Durban aquarium is really awesome - world class, like the Cape Town aquarium.

Now if they could only bring the dolphin show to such a high level of quality...

I remember walking through that "sunken ship" when we were visiting. It would be cool to see the aquarium at night, thought the shark tank would be kind of unnerving.

The shark tank at night was unnerving but in a fun way- out of nowhere sharks would suddenly swim out of the gloom towards you.

But they weren't quite as unnerving as the giant 100 kg+ brindle bass that shares the tank with them. He was very creepy...
