Ocean Encounters

 

Discover the ever changing vistas of southern Africa's underwater diving and snorkelling adventures. Explore the multi-coloured reefs as the tropical coral dwellers pass by undisturbed.

Lake Malawi is home to the world's largest number of fish species and the smartest fish on the planet resides in these waters, the endangered cichilid. Cage diving is an exciting and safe method to encounter the marine wildlife and South Africa has a number of famous diving spots that are sure to inspire any diver.

Dives at the Protea Bank are famous for various shark species, whale sharks can be seen at Sondwana and Kosi, and raggie sharks have been sighted at Aliwal Shoal.

The miraculous migration of swirling sardine shoals attracts opportunistic sharks, gannets, seals and even dolphins to the coastal areas of Transkei and southern Natal in South Africa.

South Africa also play host to the whale migration; these ocean giants gather in the waters of the south west Cape Coast and can be seen from the shoreline. Maputaland has some very ancient ocean dwellers; leatherback, loggerhead and green turtles are known to frequent the waters.
