South Africa is renowned for its adventure travel and wildlife safaris -- now tourists visiting the region can also experience SCUBA diving safaris that are among the best in the world. Not the Safari type? -- Then check out the Self-Guided SCUBA Diving Guide to South Africa.
The SCUBA diving safari hotspot is the Maputaland Coastal Forest Reserve which runs from Sodwana Bay in the south to Kosi Bay on the Mozambique border. The nearby Big 5 Game Reserves offer excellent wildlife safaris -- these can easily be combined with diving safari.
More experienced divers try out spots along the Tsitsikamma coast. The ultimate SCUBA experience is shark diving, spending time underwater with 'raggies' (ragged-toothed) and great white sharks.

Free diving with sharks happens along the south coast of KwaZulu Natal: Protea Banks and Aliwal Shoal are renowned for their sightings.
The South African coastline ranges from about 35°S to 27°S, and that means that one has a choice of diving in the cold waters of the Cape Province, the warmer waters of KwaZulu Natal. For more general SCUBA diving
