Ultimate aquariums in south Africa

So, you are wondering what to do with the young ones? Perhaps forming memories that they will never forget, an experience so surreal that it will stay with them forever? MegaBus can take you there …


Ever thought about the ocean as more of a place of waves and fun to be had? What lies deeper and how can you let your young ones experience it all? Well, MegaBus, has a few suggestions to iron out those worries. Why not take the kids on a tour of our country’s aquariums?


At MegaBus, we have sourced and found some of the most amazing aquariums you would absolutely adore taking you children to.


Two Oceans Aquarium


Cape Town — The Southern tip of Africa is where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet with great triumph. Where else would you expect to find the most diverse kaleidoscope of marine life than at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town? Next time you take a group tour with MegaBus to Cape Town or surrounds, be sure to visit the V&A Waterfront. Here, you will find the Two Oceans Aquarium. This remarkable aquarium showcases species found in both oceans. Expect to see and discover over 3 000 species of marine life here.


The variety of display galleries is a treat for both young and old. Galleries to be viewed include the Atlantic Ocean Gallery, Indian Ocean Gallery, I&J Predator Exhibit (keep an eye out for the resident turtle, Yoshi), the Sappi River Meander, and Kelp Forest Exhibit.


Some of the animals you can expect to see during your visit include sharks, penguins, seahorses, jellyfish, and a variety of fish species that would be too vast to mention here.


uShaka Marine World


Durban’s world-class uShaka Marine World was opened to the public in April 2004.

uShaka was introduced to Durban’s Golden Mile and soon proved to be an attraction few could resist. This aquarium offers a world of entertainment, excitement, authenticity and fun.


Bringing together cultures, and historical backgrounds is one thing this prized establishment has achieved in South Africa. It offers guests non-stop entertainment, fun, laughter and the spirit of unity. During the day, guests can enjoy Sea World, Wet ‘n Wild and uShaka Beach, while during the night, guests can experience the liveliness of the Village Walk.


Unable to travel to either Cape Town or Durban to visit a proper aquarium?


Not to worry, Hartbeespoort Dam, on the outskirts of Johannesburg, also offers visitors the aquarium experience.

Witness the intelligence of creatures such as seals and pelicans during your visit to Hartbeespoort Dam’s Aquarium. Here, you can expect to see a much wider abundance of wildlife beyond marine life. Take note, however, that it might not be as in-depth an experience as with the two aquariums listed above, but it surely is something to do in the City of Gold.


If you have the urge to get a group together and explore the marine world with them, look no further than MegaBus as the solution to your transport needs. We specialise in group travel and can assure both a safe and comfortable ride for your guests.
