Discover oceans of life beneath the African waves – the Two Oceans Aquarium is the place to go!

Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of the Two Oceans Aquarium where the oceans come alive in dazzling colours and a variety of shapes and sizes. Discover 3000 living animals, including sharks, penguins, rays, turtles, seahorses, giant spider crabs, jellies and plenty more!


The Two Oceans Aquarium is an all-weather venue, and is an ideal

destination for families


The Afrisam Children’s Play Centre – a hive of excitement and energy

The Play Centre is always buzzing with the excitement and energy of children.  Their gleeful laughter filters through other areas of the Aquarium as they are entertained and informed through puppet shows featuring delightful shark, octopus, penguin, eel, turtle and sunfish hand- puppets. Children are also encouraged to create fishy art works to take home to their families.


Touch Pool

The Touch Pool is a favourite exhibit with children as they are able to get their hands wet and inspect animals such as anemones and crabs as well as items washed up on the beach.



The Aquarium’s restaurant, Shoreline Café, houses a dedicated children's play centre complete with ‘grass’ and funky, durable made-for-kids furniture as well as a modular play system.


Shoreline Cafe specifically caters for small fry with an extensive kids' menu – mini cereal boxes, Purity, French toast and fish fingers are just some of the treats waiting to be enjoyed. Stand-alone baby high chairs, toddler-proof glasses, funky kids’ crockery, and a spacious and comfortable baby changing area further ensure that children are adequately catered for
