Welcome to Africa… from the Atlantic coast to the Indian ocean, Africa offers some world class dive sites from Sodwana’s pristine tropical reefs, Kenya’s fringing coral reefs, Madagascar’s barrier reef and the wrecks in the cold waters of Cape Peninsula. Some of Africa’s underwater highlights:

Best Scuba Diving in Africa

Inhambane Tofo

While most people come to South Africa to dive in oceans and with terrific sharks, some of the best technical diving occurs further inland, in the North-West Province.

At 4920 feet (1500 meters) above sea...

Western Cape

The diving in Western Cape is some of the most exciting in the world.

Tanzania is one of those places; the imagination takes over when destinations like Zanzibar and Dar-es-Salaam are mentioned.

Mention Mozambique and most scuba divers immediately think megafauna.
