Make this Mother’s Day special with uShaka

2017-05-16 06:00

USHAKA Marine World will be sending a message of love to all our moms this Mother’s Day with a Sunday full of fun on 14 May 2017.

For all the mums out there, try your fins at a snorkel for only R50 at Sea Animal Encounters Island or enjoy a free combo ticket into Sea World and Wet n Wild if accompanied by a paying guest – that’s nada, gratuito, gratis, khulula.

To make mom feel extra special, the Warren Brothers will be taking to the stage at Wahooz from 12pm till 4pm.

Moms will also feel all fluttery inside with an enchanted butterfly themed Village Walk complete with a fun photo booth in the food court, to capture those special family memories. Plus, capture your best pose with mom and post your photos on to our uShaka Marine World Facebook page or Instagram using #uShakaLovesMom to enter our Mother’s Day competition which runs on 13 & 14 May 2017.

Now with a whole day to celebrate mom, book her in for some pampering courtesy of Mangwanani and Patdee who will also be open with an array of relaxing massages or allow her creativity to shine with henna body art. Moms will also be treated to complimentary chocolates, so be sure to spot Village Walk’s brand ambassador who will be handing out the treats. If it’s retail therapy mom is after, shopping has never been better, with tenants participating in the Village Walk side walk sale taking place from Friday, 12 May to Sunday, 14 May.

To complete Mother’s Day, why not treat her to a three-course Mother’s day lunch at Cargo Hold, featuring the very best and difficult choices in each course as well as complimentary cocktail just for mom.
