Sit down for breakfast in front of the beautiful Predator Exhibit with staff from the Aquarium's curatorial team. Enjoy an informal chat with Curator Maryke Musson about the inner workings of the Aquarium, while you treat yourself to a grand breakfast buffet prepared by Head Chef Lucio De Allende.

After this exclusive breakfast, explore our inner workings as breakfasters are split into small groups and given a tour of the parts of the Aquarium rarely seen by the public. You might meet Animal Nutrition Coordinator Mmameli Mpukumpa preparing breakfast for the animals, the penguins taking their morning waddle through the Aquarium or Bob and Alvi coming up to greet the aquarists and get a morning shell rub. Ask any questions that come to mind - breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we certainly hope it fuels your curiosity!
