Scuba DivingSouth Africa is a vast country with a coastline bordering both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. A varied environment is home to a multitude of wildlife and just like the land, South Africa’s underwater world is as diverse and as exciting with some fantastic dive sites. Along the famed Garden Route, you will find memorable diving off Knysna, the Tsitsikamma National Park and at Plettenberg Bay. From Cape Town, you can arrange specific dives to observe cape fur seals, African penguins and great white sharks. South Africa's best-known dive site is Aliwal Shoal where there is a large population of raggedtooth sharks or 'raggies'. With so much variety one holiday will probably not be enough!

Getting ThereAlthough about 30 airlines now fly to South Africa, it still isn't exactly a hub of international travel and the fares reflect that. Johannesburg International Airport remains the main international airport, but there are an increasing number of flights to Cape Town and a few to Durban. There's an airport departure tax of R34 for domestic flights, R57 for flights to regional (African) countries and R179 for other international flights. The tax is usually included in the ticket price.
