Take one of our South Africa diving holidays, and forget about the Big Five. Because the real heavyweights are under water, and even the most immense terrestrial animals seem ridiculously small compared to one of these large whales - whether humpback, black, or southern right, or the peaceable whale shark. This is the place to experience the thrill of sharks, too, of many kinds: Zambezi bull, tiger,
hammerhead, guitar, leopard and mako sharks, and not forgetting the cult hero Carcharodon carcharias, the great white shark. They all come here along the length of the coast to feast on tuna. And from May to July, just to vary the menu, they all flock to the sardine run. This mass migration of the little silver fish, as they head north, forms an immense shoal more than 20 miles long and 30 metres deep, and attracts sharks, whales, swordfish, sea lions, birds - and divers - to a phenomenal feeding frenzy.

To say we had the holiday of a lifetime would be an understatement. The attention to detail was unbelievable and it's those things that helped contribute to the great time we had. Given my brief was pretty vague(!), you did an incredible job at creating the most magical of holidays. I could wax lyrical about all the amazing things we saw and did but I won't bore you. But suffice to say, it really surpassed all of our expectations and then some! My husband loved it and both boys have got some memories that will last them a lifetime. The team (and I mean a team!) listened to my rather vague ideas and came up with a wonderful plan for my holiday, which had a significant meaning and they were really respectful of that. Their attention to detail was fantastic, their communication was great and the holiday itself was wonderful in every way. They even handled my last-minute panic (my son was ill 48 hours before we were due to travel!) with calmness, reassuring me and putting an alternative plan into place, should we have needed it (thankfully we didn't!). I would not hesitate to recommend them or indeed use them again. The only downside - they have rather spoilt me for holidays as I only want to do big, 'holidays of a lifetime' with them....! Incredible on every level. The locations, the staff, the resorts, the little touches, the smooth transitions, the planning, the detail - just fantastic.
