USHAKA Marine World won the Best Visitor Experience Award for a third time at the recent Lilizela Awards.

CEO of uShaka Marine World, Dr Stella Khumalo, said that a third Lilizela Award in 2018 was testament to the power of edutainment and the fact that more and more tourists were supporting a local hospitality industry that was underpinned by a strong conservation message.

This is the third time that the premier tourist attraction on Durban’s iconic Golden Mile has snapped up the prestigious Lilizela Award.

The first one was in 2015 and the second in 2017.

“Since opening to the public in April 2004, more than 10 million local and international tourists have visited uShaka Marine World,” she said.

Launched in May 2013, the KZN Lilizela Tourism Awards recognise and reward the best of the best in South Africa’s tourism sector.
