This diving safari is a great combination of tropical diving and big 5 game viewing with the option to extend to Cape Town for a few days on route home!
Spend a week diving Aliwal Shoal, one of South Africa’s premier dive spots where sightings of Ragged Tooth sharks are common and the possibility of other large pelagics such as whale sharks, sea turtles, potato bass and numerous game fish can be seen. Extremely popular with divers is the baited shark dive where you will be surrounded by anything from 20 – 80 bold Oceanic Black Tip sharks and might even have other species such as Tiger or Bull sharks come close.
Perched atop a green hill in the welcoming town of Scottburgh, with breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean – the Blue Marlin Hotel has become a favoured family holiday destination, both nationally and abroad.
A perfect ending to your Aliwal adventure is a short stay at Hluhluwe, A Big 5 National Park in the heart of Zululand – where you will experience the wildlife and African Bush at its best.
