Coming from the spectacular Drakensberg and driving into the suburbs of Durban was quite a change for us. Finally the rain started to ease and by reaching the suburbs of Durban it completely stopped. Durban was surprisingly green and hilly. For whatever reason we expected it to be flat and dusty. But no, it was green, hilly with lots of exocitcs flowers blossoming. But it was hot and humid! For 6 days we had been on an average height of about 1700 metres where it gets a bit chilly in the evening. Not so in Durban - it was definitely a different climate.

Sunday was a typical morning, waking up at about 8 am to eat scones and prepare for church. After church, Anne, Margaret, Jeff and Suzanne went off to the beach for lunch while Dudley and I ... read more

The park consists of different attractions, the most popular one is the dolphin show which is absolutely remarkable!!The show is very educational, teaching young and old about the importance of recycling, and how dangerous certain items like plastic can cause these majestic animals to either get very sick or die as they swallow them by wanting to play with them. They also have the Seal Show and the Penguin and Shark feeding times yet again its an awesome experience full of fun:).. Ushaka also offers shark dives, snorkel lagoon, the ocean walker and the meet a dolphin experience...The oceanarium itself is built underneath an old shipwreck AMAZING!!!
