We all love a good laugh – even our fish! Here are some photos from our Flickr group showing the various, and often hilarious facial expressions of some of the creatures at the Two Oceans Aquarium. We tried to imagine what they were laughing at…
The Two Oceans Aquarium recently hosted another of its very popular members’ events – the family sleepover, which took place on April 4.
It is amazing how quickly time seems to fly when a building is being constructed – one day there’s a parking lot and, what feels like the next, there are bulldozers, cranes, cement and foundations in its place.
There’s nothing like a week in Cape Town to remind you that Johannesburg (as much as I love it) is without an ocean (let’s leave the mountain out of it, just this once). But there’s nothing like an afternoon at the Two Oceans Aquarium to remind you that the views of the ocean that Cape Town affords tell nothing of the world beneath its surface. And what a world it is.
It’s National Water Week, and we’re encouraging visitors to avoid rushing off to buy bottled water, which creates plastic litter and overloads landfill sites. Instead, fill a container from your tap at home and take it with you in your car, on a hike or while shopping.
South Africa’s drinking water is reputedly among the best in the world, and we are one of very few countries where water can still be consumed directly from the tap. So have a drink on us, and enjoy some watery inspiration from our staff at each one of the exhibits.
