Win a family membership to The Two Oceans Aquarium

The school holidays are around the corner and Hamish and I wanted to share our love of the aquarium with you so we have collaborated with the Two Oceans Aquarium to gift one lucky family membership for a year.

About the Two Oceans Aquarium

Of-fish-ally our favourite place in Cape Town. Hamish and I could spend every day at the aquarium and still learn something new each time.

Situated at the V and A Waterfront, The magnificent Two Oceans Aquarium showcases the increadible diversity of marine life found in Africa’s Two Oceans.

The aquarium is one of Cape Town’s top tourist attractions and currently hosts over 3000 living sea creatures. These include fish, shark, penguin and turtles who all enjoy spectacular underwater homes.


The aquarium is so much more than just a pretty place to view the splendors of the Oceans. Two Oceans Aquarium strive to be ambassadors for the ocean and host many initiatives to educate the public about our fish friends. They run educational and conservation projects and host several opportunities to explore, experience and engage with our ocean creatures and marine life.

  1. I love taking my 4 year old son to see the penguin. It’s a bit pricey for myself, my son and my husband to go so we go when it either mine or my husband’s birthday to enjoy one free ticket . However we missed our trip for my husbands birthday last year as I was pregnant and would not be able to handle the smell of those beautiful animals however we will be returning next weekend for hubbys birthday with a 4 year old and 4 month old

  2. We absolutely love the shows, and taking it all in and be grateful for the amazing fish we can see
