South Africa is the quintessential destination for land safaris, but also has a mighty reputation for its adrenalin charged scuba diving tours and safaris. Experience first hand the same breath taking proximity to South Africa's big marine life on a diving holiday that will leave you breathless. With a range of tour itineraries, exploring South Africa above and below the water has never been so simple or rewarding. Scuba Travel's South Africa diving tours stop at the most striking underwater highlights... which of course means shark encounters! Leave the hustle of the cities behind and splash in to dive Aliwal Shoal, Protea Banks and Sodwana Bay. Recline at the end of each day's diving adventure from the comfort of the lodge to watch a yellow sun sinking across the endless plain.
South Africa is home to an impressive number of apex predators. Lions, rhino and elephants rule the land whilst tiger, ragged tooth, bull and bronze whalers patrol the waters. Chose from a range of itineraries, each tailored to the changing seasons... The East Coast Safari mixes up awesome scuba diving with land based excursions. 7 Species in 7 Days does just what it says on the tin - 7 different shark species all in 10 dives! Or why not witness the mind bending Sardine Run, as millions of tiny fish run the gauntlet along the coastline, avoiding the seals, gulls and whales that feast on them. Dolphins complete the big fish whilst the smaller paper fish, ribbon eels and rays nestle into an alluring reef of sponges and corals. South Africa proves time and time again that she has not lost the sense of adventure that makes this such an unparalleled destination.
