Reviews for Shark conservation in South Africa


review 4 Sep 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage. You could see her blue eye moving and focusing as she had a good look at what was going on inside our cage.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

I would recommend adding a few extra days on either side of the project so that you can explore Cape Town and do any additional activities that you haven't yet had the chance to fit in. The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The whole project was focused on helping local wildlife and local communities. I helped with research, eco-tourism, beach cleans, put out fishing line bins, cleared alien vegetation and delivered the resulting wood to the local townships, traveled back to Cape Town with an oiled penguin to deliver it to a rescue and rehabilitation center... The list goes on.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I planned to stay for 4 weeks, extended to 6 weeks and still didn't want to come home. Need I say more?
