Join us for a unique and exciting adventure in South Africa on safari and cage diving with the famous breaching Great White sharks of Seal Island. The adventure starts with a 10 day safari to see all of the great predators, elephants, rhino, giraffes in some of the best private reserves and Kruger National Park. We stay in a tree house lodge for most of the safari, but also travel to the Sabi Sands reserve for their leopard action. After the adventures in the bushveld, we head down to Cape Town and Simon's Town for 2 days with the great whites and seals to watch airborne predation attacks and go in the shark cage. We will have time for optional shore dives in the kelp to see cowsharks and other rare shark species. When not in the water, we are a walk away from the nesting South African Penguin colony - in fact they walk about town at night. They are easy to photograph from the beach or the nice boardwalk. The food is great, the scenery unique, and the memories will be exciting and vivid. May 25 - June 8th (you can plan to stay for the sardine run which starts at this time of year) Most all expenses are covered in our package price except airfare to/from Johannesburg More details on our website or contact us. We have 2 unexpected empty spaces on this trip to fill fast http://www.africawildsafaris.net
Hi all, I have a work trip to South Africa next week and have booked myself to go out on a great white shark diving trip next weekend on one of my days off. While I did ask about scuba diving, the answer was a resounding "no", that I had to stay in the cage, and that the only option aside from a snorkel or breath-hold was to use the hookah system from the boat. During the booking process, I asked about photography, and was told that while I could bring my camera, there was a very clear "no strobes or lights in the cage" policy. I assume this is partly due to space constraints, and partly because it might bother the sharks? So I have my little G12 with a Recsea housing and a wide angle and a macro lens. I am intending to bring the camera, housing and the w/a lens...But am not so sure on the settings I should be using without strobes or a light? Has anybody done this kind of "near surface" diving before without additional lighting and have any suggestions? And if anybody's done this kind of cage shark dive before, should I leave the w/a lens at home and just stick to the regular flat port? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks WetPup
