shark Cage Diving

Shark cage diving is a thrilling experience for sports enthusiasts who like to get up close and personal with some of the ocean’s deadliest predators. The waters around South Africa are home to great whites, copper sharks, blue sharks and many other species. Shark cage diving is a popular activity, and visitors who want to get a feel of what it is like to be in the wild with sharks can join a guided shark cage diving tour. They are lowered into the water in a tightly locked steel cage where they share the waters with the fearsome creatures. No prior experience of diving is required, as they first get a full briefing on safety from the knowledgeable guides.

These are also the low season and offer decent savings on accommodations and fewer crowds. The summers of October to April bring lush landscapes, newborn animals, and brightly-coloured birdlife. South Africa receives 464mm of rainfall a year on average.
