Welcome to Bayworld

Bayworld is closed to the public during the day of Friday 26 May and Saturday 27 May 2017.  We are preparing for the event Night at the Museum.

We will be operating within our normal opening times from Sunday 28 May 2017.

One of the leading tourist attractions in Nelson Mandela Bay, Bayworld is unique in Southern Africa, embracing a natural and cultural history Museum combined with a Snake Park and Oceanarium. It is located in the heart of the Port Elizabeth beachfront and serves up a feast of edutainment to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

The main activities of the Complex are research and education aimed at stimulating a greater awareness of the need for conservation of South Africa’s natural and cultural heritage. Research and education programmes focus on marine life, reptiles, maritime and local history.
