Zanzibar - Island Paradise

Zanzibar is definitely worth a visit for travellers visiting East Africa. With palm lined beaches and sparkling turquoise sea, it is the perfect setting for a tropical beach holiday. The north of the island - Nungwi and Kendwa - are unique as there is no tidal plain and therefore offer excellent swimming conditions. A day trip on a dhow to snorkel on the Mnembe Atollis is a must do. There is a variety of beach…
Winter is officially here in Cape Town, and so are the Great White Sharks and plenty of them.  This is one of our popular CAPE TOWN DAY TOURS. Although we do Shark diving all year round - June, July and August are officially the best months to do it. We experience more sightings now than any other season. The main factor contributing to this is that interestingly the water temperature is warmer in winter than…

Elana's BlogI’ve recently had the amazing opportunity to experience a 4 Day Tree House Safari in Kruger National Park.   I visited the park in the end of May, lovely warm weather in the day and chilly at night (the blankets on the game drives kept us nice and cosy), but have to say, this is an excellent time for game viewing.  The grass levels of the park was not that high and also not a lot…
