USHAKA Marine World, Africa's largest marine theme park and an integral part of the city's overall tourism offering, was recently announced as the winner of KZN's Top Brand 2018 at the Standard Bank Top Business Awards.

The announcement was made recently at a gala dinner hosted at the Elangeni Hotel.

UShaka CEO Stella Khumalo said that being chosen above respected consumer brands such as Defy, MCS, Gagasi FM, The Sharks, Blue Security, BB Bakeries, Hilton Durban, Coastlands Hotel, KZN Oils, aQuellé , FMI, DRG Outsourcing, Boxer Superstores, Edison Power, 1st Call Group and East Coast Radio was a significant honour.

The park was created over 14 years ago to kickstart urban regeneration and boost development in an area of Durban’s beachfront that was previously ignored.

Khumalo said that uShaka prided itself in offering a combination of entertainment and outdoor leisure activities that are suitable for all ages and are aimed at both the international and domestic tourism markets.
