uShaka Marine World springs into action offering the best entertainment this September!

Every weekend until September 28, there will be performances by the Marimba and Steel Band at Sea World anchor gardens, get to meet the uShaka Marine World mascots introducing their new show at uShaka Kids World and watch the fun-filled festive parades throughout the Village Walk.

With September also being Deaf Awareness month in South Africa and one that is close to uShaka’s heart, visitors to the new dolphin show can catch Sibo Masondo (aka Le Mot) a French deaf mime artist in action before each show, entertaining the crowds.

On September 13 and 14, and again on September 20 and 21, get your fix of fun when uShaka’s Search for the Stars competition, presented by the Department of Arts and Culture, gets underway in the entrance arena. Enjoy the vibes of an array of performances from dancing, to singing and speciality acts, when potentials show off their talents for a spot in the finals which takes place on September 27 and 28.

September 24 also sees the celebration of Heritage Day, so visit uShaka and feel proudly South African with Zulu dancing, Isigekle, Sotho dancing as well as pop-up shops and a craft market featuring KZN’s colourful beadwork in arena 1 at the entrance of uShaka Marine World Village Walk.

In the food court arena, celebrating the Afrikaans heritage, catch a performance by one-man band Lee Vaughn and there will be lively, fun-filled parades throughout the park to get provide a party mood.

Don’t forget to catch Jisantha Productions with their Bollywood dancers in the beach arena, DJ Spike in Wet n Wild and Lavida Loca performing live at Sea World, joined by popular percussionist Bryan Clarke and his Caribbean Connection Steel Drum Band. Unico, a tropical two man band playing pipes / djemba drums, will also be at the ticketing area outside the Wet n Wild entrance creating an island vibe.

If a chilled out vibe is more your scene, sip on a cocktail at Wahooz on the promenade while taking in the sounds of Afritude on Saturdays as well as the Bonito Blues Band every Sunday from 12h00 to 17h00. However, on Heritage Day, Wahooz will be home to a traditional buy and braai with a fun Cape Carnival vibe!
