Tony and I joined Travel Massive last night for an event hosted at the Two Oceans Aquarium at the Waterfront in Cape Town. As you will see from our pictures lots of it took place next to the scary awesome Predator’s Exhibition. Travel Massive Cape Town Chapter has been a huge success from the get go and last night it drew a crowd of two hundred travel enthusiast.
The Two Oceans Aquarium offers visitors the opportunity to discover the diverse marine life found off the southern African coast. Through displays ranging from the small and almost fantastical Knysna seahorses, to large ragged-tooth sharks, the Aquarium holds wondrous discoveries for young and old, around every corner. Meet the animals that call the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean their home – and the brightly coloured ones that live in the warm Indian Ocean. Be mesmerised by the swaying of the giant kelp in the aptly named Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit- one of only a handful living kelp forest displays in the world and the only one in Africa.
