Shark and Safari Package
Make the most of your limited time in Cape Town with our combination Shark Cage Diving and Big 5 Game Safari Expedition.
Day One: Shark Cage Diving
The meeting point for Day 1 is at our diving centre in Gansbaai. This tour includes transport from Cape Town, so Shark Zone will personally collect you from your accommodation in Cape Town. Cape Town to Gansbaai only takes about 2 and a half hours so you’ll be there before you know it.
- A delectable breakfast will be served to clients upon arrival at the meeting point, where you will also be given an all-important safety briefing.
- After breakfast, you’ll be taken to our boat docked at the Kleinbaai Harbour, which is a short 3 minute walk from the meeting point.
- All board! The boat will set off shortly after your arrival, and transport you to the diving spot close-by.
- Once anchored, the crew will immediately begin to chum the water with fish based products like tuna and fish oil, to bring the sharks to the boat. While you wait, the crew will fill you in on the habits and behaviour of the sharks.
- When the first Great White Shark has been spotted, those who have opted to dive will kit up and slip into the cage to begin experience a face to face encounter with the massive animals. Not to worry, if you don’t feel like getting your feet wet, viewing the sharks from the boat is outstanding and sometimes even better than in the cage.
- Clients will be out at sea for about 3 to 4 hours, during which time you’ll be served drinks and snacks on board, to keep the hunger pangs at bay.
- When you get back to shore, you’ll be treated to a more substantial lunch, prepared by us, before being driven back to your accommodation in Cape own.
