Review of the Two Oceans Aquarium

What a great experience to visit the Two Oceans Aquarium. This is a must-do if you are in the Cape Town area.

There are so many beautiful fish on display that it becomes hard to take it all in. Many an hour was spent at this aquarium.

Be sure to catch the I&J Predator Exhibit, where regular feedings take place. It is truly fascinating watching the predator fish feed. The exhibit also has a "bridge" which allows the visitor to walk "underneath" the fish. Keep an eye out for the large manta ray!
