"I need the sea because it teaches me." Pablo Neruda
The coast of Southern Africa is as rich and diverse as Africa itself. From the striking contrast of red sand dunes meeting the ocean along the Skeleton Coast of Namibia, down to the rugged Atlantic West Coast of South Africa, strewn with little white fishing villages and the sheltered bays of Cape Town where killers whales, seals and great white sharks can be spotted. Drive along the famous coastline of the Garden Route, where hundreds of magnificent Southern Right whales come to breed every Spring. Spot dolphins or go fishing in the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, or make your way up to the tropical beaches of Kwa-Zulu Natal and Mozambique where whale sharks and dolphins play in the surf, thousands of brightly coloured fish swim in the coral reefs, and turtles come to breed on the beaches.
