South Africa’s marine diversity is legendary. Dive in and enjoy the country’s coastal waters to their fullest, then navigate inland for a classical South Africa safari.
Near Capetown, you will snorkel among playful seals and kayak to one of the world’s youngest colonies of African penguins. Experience the thrill of cage-diving amid great white sharks, then meet scientists who humanely protect Durban’s beaches from these top predators. Find plentiful freshwater species such as hippos and crocodiles at iSimangaliso Wetland, Africa’s largest estuarine system.
Finally, enjoy game drives in northern KwaZulu-Natal. The reserves here shelter an abundance of wildlife, including lions, elephants, leopards, cheetahs, and the scarce black rhino. Should you miss the ocean, it is only a stone’s throw away. Your guide can arrange turtle-watching, snorkeling, or scuba diving to round off this safari of your dreams.
