St. Lucia: Cape Vidal Snorkeling Adventure

1. St. Lucia: Cape Vidal Snorkeling Adventure

Meet your friendly instructors in Cape Vidal, just an hour drive through iSimangaliso Wetland Park from St. Lucia. The park is a protected area that runs along the coast of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal Provice, and is home to an abundance of hippos, crocodiles, penguins, flamingos, elephants, giraffes, and leopards, spanning across the various landscapes. The adventure begins with a safety briefing on the beach and time to get kitted out with all the snorkel gear. Next, head into the water for a 1 to 1.5-hour exploration of Cape Vidal’s underwater world. Follow your instructor as you go in search of marine life, with the opportunity to see stingrays, octopus, butterfly fish, sturgeon fish, and many more. By the end of the trip, you will have spotted around 50 different species of fish. Back on dry land, warm up with a cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate as you page through the fascinating fish ID book to point out what you have seen.

From St Lucia: Cape Vidal Full-Day Snorkeling Safari

2. From St Lucia: Cape Vidal Full-Day Snorkeling Safari

After pickup from your accommodations, your guide will take you on a safari drive in iSimangaliso Wetland Park. You'll have the chance to see many animals in their natural habitat including elephants, hippos, rhinos, hyenas, buffalos, zebras, wildebeest, antelopes, chameleons and if you're lucky, perhaps a leopard. Then head to the beach for 2 hours of snorkeling and discover over 50 different species of fish. If you're not a keen snorkeler, you can enjoy the beach on your own or go for a little birdwatching walk on the forest dunes of Cape Vidal with another guide. Your tour is conducted in a laid-back, yet professional manner and includes breakfast and a delicious African braai (barbeque) lunch.

Sani Pass Private Tour

3. Sani Pass Private Tour

The day begins with an early morning collection in a 4×4 vehicle and travels towards the Sani Pass. Enjoy the luxury of having your own private vehicle, which allows for more space and comfort as you travel along the bumpy roads, and the freedom to decide where you’d like to go. As the altitude increases, the road becomes narrower and more treacherous, and all signs of human habitation disappear, leaving you alone in the glory of the majestic mountains. Stop and take photos at your leisure, and enjoy a selection of hot and cold beverages and freshly baked snacks as you absorb the breathtaking views. Nearing the top of the pass at 2876 m, head through border control and towards the desolate Lesotho Highlands. Visit a private homestead and immerse yourself in the local community. Learn about the culture and lifestyle of this small family. Then take a walk to learn the stories of the shepherds within their own stone dwellings. Finally, enjoy a refreshing beer at the highest pub in Southern Africa on the return journey before relaxing in the 4×4 as you marvel at more stunning scenic views.

A perfectly organized tour. Pick up at Oak Ridge Guest House perfect. Our guide, Gregory, made us feel from the start that this is our day today. An absolutely exciting climb to the Sani Pass. I can only recommend everyone to 1. do the tour and 2. book the tour as a private tour. We had the Toyota to ourselves. Looking at the Range Rover with 6-8 seats, we were more than happy to have decided on this tour. Everything was fine, including the little things.

Had a truly amazing experience and even though we had a quiet drive in the morning we got to learn so much about the local bird and plant life. In the afternoon, the snorkeling was great especially as a first timer. A fantastic adventure in a beautiful part of the country I'll definitely recommend to anyone.

An excellent day out - our guide Spi was great - he shared a lot of information with us and was an excellent host who really took great care of us, and esp our two children. The game viewing was great, the snorkelling very good but certainly it was all made better by an excellent guide, Spi.

Awesome trip with Johan. Scenery is spectacular. Got to see enough game and plenty of birds. The snorkelling might have been a bit short but the water was very clear and the variety of fish was surprising. Both breakfast and lunch were excellent.

This was a great experience both on land and in the ocean. Sakhile was an amazing, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend this experience.
