Diving Holidays

From the unspoilt depths of Mozambique to diving with Great White Sharks...

Overview

What next after the Red Sea? We offer a range of luxurious and diverse diving holidays in throughout Southern Africa. From the Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles, Zanzibar or Nosy Be to the coastal waters of Mozambique and South Africa?

Here, you'll find idyllic islands and archipelagos as well as long pristine coastlines protected by fringing reefs. Experience some of the world's finest coral reef systems. Or enjoy the completely different adrenaline rush of shark cage diving in the Cape of South Africa.

We focus on diving in four countries: the Seychelles, Mozambique, Madagascar and Mafia Island & Zanzibar off the coast of Tanzania.

Diving Holidays in South Africa

However, diving in South Africa is worth considering. We favour the pristine reefs and warm sub-tropical waters of Coastal Maputaland  in KwaZulu Natal. Here you can have an adventurous diving experience in a true wilderness environment. Furthermore, you are likely to spot turtles, manta ray, dolphins and sharks.

Highlights

  • Great diversity of diving experiences. From the unspoilt depths of Mozambique and Madagascar to the near paradise of the Seychelles or Mnemba Island
  • Amazing possibilities to dive with whale sharks - massive yet harmless whales up to 14 metres in length
  • Much less well-known and thus less coral bleaching than over-touristed elsewhere in the world
  • Great opportunity to combine a diving holiday with a world-class safari experience.
  • Southern Africa offers 5 of the 7 marine mammals in the world

"Nancy and I want to thank you for the extraordinary trip!  Every excursion, transfer, and flight was on-time and stress-free. Everyone we met was kind, patient, and welcoming.  And, the sights on the Safari, in the cities, and at the parks will never be forgotten.  I will be sure to leave positive reviews of Cedarberg and you on various websites!

All your arrangements/transfers worked like clockwork

"We have had the most fantastic holiday and that all your arrangements / transfers etc worked like clockwork. The accommodation and food was excellent everywhere we stayed. It has left us hungry for more (especially Victoria Falls) so we had better get saving for a return trip! This was our first trip to South Africa and we had no idea how stunningly beautiful your country is. " Laughton Family, UK

"Overall, the trip was wonderful! You and Cedarberg continue to excel in local knowledge, attentiveness in creating wonderful customized itineraries. Every camp was a perfect blend of game, local hospitality and the kind of unique experiences we were looking for. I also had the distinct pleasure thanks to you and the boys – of celebrating my birthday in all three camps! What a memorable and lovely treat. Elewana Pepper Camp was the best in the combination, with Kaz Kaz a close second. The boys loved our driver here—sorry I forgot his name. But he had a great sense of humor, was rather adventurous and aggressive with the driving when there was a crossing and as such, we had fabulous visibility and photos. Kaz Kaz and the entire location was ideal. Remote and relaxed. My only challenge was the very limited wifi – this should have been a weekend spot for me so I would have been less concerned about getting messages. But it worked out. The team at Kaz kaz were less polished (and less fluent in English) but they more than made up for it in their warmth and hospitality. The reduced English fluency meant our guide was unable to share as much about the local people and culture – (which we got lots from in Elewana thanks to Leperes). The last night sunset celebration – which seemed to be just for us, was truly special. I think I sent you some photos. We could not have asked for a better send off. We also had the wonderful delight of seeing all of the big 5 in Kaz Kaz – including a rhino, rather unexpectedly and rather close! Needless to say Kaz Kaz was a huge hit in the family. The tents were also quite spacious and comfortable. I could stay here a week.   " Mari
