uShaka Wins Big!

Lilizela KZN Tourisn Awards

uShaka does it again!

uShaka Marine World is delighted to announce that it has won the Best Marine Experience Award at the Lilizela Awards, the second time the park has been bestowed this honour, the first being in 2015.

Launched in May 2013, the KZN Lilizela Tourism Awards recognise and reward the best of the best in South Africa’s tourism value chain. The name is derived from the Zulu word ‘’Lilizela’’ which means celebrating and praising by ululating when someone has done well. These awards are an initiative of the National Department of Tourism and delivered by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.

The Awards – which are based on public comments and votes for the best tourism experiences and products – are intended to both recognize and reward tourism players and businesses who work passionately and with pride to deliver a world class product and service that ultimately grows South Africa’s global destination competitiveness.

This, the 5th annual Lilizela awards, saw nearly 500 provincial finalists drawn from an extremely competitive field of more than 1 600 entries, exceeding last year’s tally by almost 50%.

CEO of uShaka Marine World, Stella Khumalo, said that this award is particularly valuable and shows that the uShaka team are delivering an experience to be remembered.

“We aim to not only make this one that keeps our visitors coming back for more but one that gets our visitors’ friends and families coming to see why they do,” she said, adding that the team worked hard to ensure that uShaka remained an attraction of which Durbanites could be proud by continually refreshing its offering and service and continuing to build a strong brand.
