Luxury Diving Holidays in Africa & the Indian Ocean Islands
What next after the Red Sea? How about a diving holiday off the coast of Africa? Or diving off the Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles or Nosy Be? Diving in Africa offers something for everyone. From the unspoiled depths of Mozambique to the powerful seas off South Africa and the near paradisical experience of the Seychelles. There are dozens of small islands and archipelagos as well as long pristine coastlines protected by fringing reefs. Experience some of the world’s finest coral reef systems, relax in turtle gardens or enjoy the completely different adrenalin rush of shark cage diving in the Cape of South Africa.
Being tailormade safari specialists for Africa, we know the best areas for luxury diving holidays and the best dive resorts. Many of these dive resorts also offer snorkelling excursions, or snorkelling from the beach, so its not a problem if only some people are keen divers.
Luxury Diving Holidays in South Africa
Most keen divers head to the warm sub-tropical waters of KwaZulu Natal for the finest diving holidays in South Africa. We favour the pristine reefs off Coastal Maputaland. Here you can have an adventurous diving experience in a true wilderness environment. Both Rocktail Beach Camp and Thonga Beach Lodge have dive centres and you can learn to dive with PADI courses on offer. Here you’ll enjoy spectacular coral formations and a bewildering range of beautiful reef fish as well as turtles, manta ray, dolphins and sharks. South of Durban lies Aliwal Schoals, another fining diving spot with a range of dive spots, as well as greater accessibility.
Below we focus on diving in four main areas: The Seychelles, Mozambique, Madagascar and Mafia Island off the Tanzania coast. See what each country can offer…
