There is fun planned for all at the Two Oceans Aquarium this Easter holiday. From March 29 to April 7 the Aquarium will present a jam-packed and educational holiday programme for all its visitors to enjoy.
Each day will be filled with activities for young and old to participate in while exploring 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 Aquarium’s Environmental Education team will present informative, hands-on talks in front of the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit at 12pm on April 1, 2, and 4.
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 also make her way around the Aquarium, meeting, greeting and handing out some sweet Easter treats.
Shoreline Café, the Aquarium’s onsite restaurant, is gearing up to serve a superb Easter Sunday brunch (no bookings required). On the public holidays and weekends they will offer a special dish of pan-fried line fish 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. Shoreline Café has a dedicated children’s play area, sponsored by I&J where the kids can keep themselves busy while their parents enjoy their meal.
