KWAZULU NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA 

 

 

Drive & Dive Safaris is situated on the east coast of South Africa, in the sunshine province of KwaZulu Natal. Home to the Zulu nation, the ‘people of heaven’, this aptly named area proudly boasts two of the South Africa’s World Heritage sites. A world in one province, KZN offers diverse attractions - the beautiful Drakensberg Mountains, pristine beaches, world-class dive sites, internationally recognized golf courses, abundant wildlife and up-market safari lodges. Within this Zulu Kingdom, Drive & Dive Safaris offers GOLFING TOURS, SAFARIS, SCUBA DIVING TRIPS and DAY TOURS. This small but dynamic company is family run by Michele Addison, assisted by Sylvia White, and offers a personal and professional service. Our aim is to make your visit to our province an unforgettable experience and the holiday of a lifetime. 

DESCRIPTION & WHAT WE OFFER

The east coast of KZN is considered one of the top ten destinations in the world for scuba diving. With warm subtropical waters, both Sodwana Bay to the north of Durban, and Aliwal Shoal to the south, make for great diving all year round.

 

ALIWAL SHOAL
The majestic Aliwal Shoal offers great reef diving with an abundance of fish and coral life. There are also two wrecks in the area that make fascinating dive sites. From June to December the Aliwal Shoal becomes home to the Ragged-Tooth Shark, which use the area as their mating ground. This is a season not to be missed and sightings can almost be guaranteed over this period.

 

SODWANA

Situated on the Maputoland coast in the heart of the wilds of Africa, Sodwana Bay is a haven for avid scuba divers. Sodwana is a marine reserve and home to a recently discovered colony of Coelacanths, once thought to be extinct. With brilliant reefs and colourful marine life, one can enjoy many dive sites including the famous 7 and 9 Mile reefs.

It is also common during our summer months, from September to April, to come across the gentle giants of the sea in these waters, the Whale Shark. One can also watch Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles making their annual trek up the beach to lay their eggs (Nov – Feb).

 

SARDINE RUN - WILDLIFE EXTRAVAGANZA

The migration of the pilchard Sardinops Sagox is an annual marine phenomenon that occurs off the Transkei and KZN coasts from mid-May to July. This event, which must be witnessed first-hand, brings with it millions of small sardines, the beautiful Orca Whale and everything in between.

If it’s your dream to see thousands of dolphins, birds, sharks, seals and whales, all in close proximity, then this is for you. It is truly a wonderful marine wildlife opportunity to get up-close and personal with nature, is a trip for the whole family and a brilliant photographic opportunity.
