Each day will be filled with activities for young and old as they explore the Aquarium’s exhibits. Twice-daily creepy-crawly shows, hosted by Giraffe House, will tackle some fears and misconceptions people have about certain animals. Some of the stars of these interactive and educational shows include snakes, spiders, a bearded dragon and a large African bullfrog.
The AfriSam Children’s Play Centre will be abuzz with activities to keep the little ones busy. All small fry are invited to take part in Easter-themed arts and crafts, such as cookie and egg decorating, and puppet shows. Or, if they just want to do their own thing, they can have fun in the sandpit and ball pond. The Aquarium’s penguin mascot, Samantha, will be making her way around the Aquarium, meeting and greeting people and handing out sweet Easter treats.
Shoreline Café, the Aquarium’s restaurant, is gearing up to serve a superb Easter Sunday brunch (no bookings required), while on public holidays and weekends it will offer a special dish of pan-fried linefish served with ratatouille, creamy orzo and tapenade, for only R85.
Shoreline Café is the first Marine Stewardship Council-certified restaurant in Africa and serves only SASSI (Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative) green-listed fish. It has a dedicated children’s play area, sponsored by I&J, where the kids can keep themselves busy while their parents enjoy their meal.
