South Africa’s marine diversity is legendary. Dive in and enjoy the country’s coastal waters to their fullest, then navigate inland for the land animals that make South Africa safaris so beloved.
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 join scientists who humanely protect Durban’s beaches from these impressive predators. Encounter plentiful freshwater species such as hippos and crocodiles at iSimangaliso Wetland, Africa’s largest estuarine system.
Finally, enjoy a classic South Africa safari in northern KwaZulu-Natal. The reserves here shelter an abundance of terrestrial wildlife, including lions, African elephants, Cape buffalos, leopards, cheetahs, and the scarce black rhino. Should you miss the ocean, it is only a stone’s throw away. Your guide will be happy to arrange turtle-watching, snorkeling, or scuba diving to round off this safari of your dreams.
