My daughter is over the moon because she is a huge DORA fan.

Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305), one of the leading entertainment brands for kids and family, has teamed up with Life Like Touring and Blu Blood to bring pre-school heroine and intrepid adventurer Dora the Explorer and her friends to South Africa this winter.


Dora the Explorer Live! Dora’s Pirate Adventure, the ultimate, fantastic family-friendly theatrical experience, opens at the ICC, Durban (1-3 July), before moving on to Emperors Palace, Johannesburg (7-11 July), and finally dropping anchor at the Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino, in Cape Town (12-17 July).

Tickets are priced R185 – R385 (no charge for children under 1).

Group discounts are available for parties of 5 or more. Wheelchair access available.

Families and kids are invited to join Dora and her pals Boots and Diego on a voyage of discovery as they embark on an exciting trip to Treasure Island in search of the ultimate pirate party. Help them navigate over the Dancing Mountain and through the Silly Singing Bridge in pursuit of the Pirate Piggies. Along the way, Dora the Explorer fans will use their map-reading, counting, musical and language skills to successfully help Dora reach Treasure Island and avoid that pesky fox, Swiper!


Dora the Explorer live stage shows have enjoyed success around the world and have now been seen by more than four million people including audiences in Australia, the United Kingdom, Egypt, Kuwait, Russia, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and New Zealand.
