5 Exciting Winter Activities in Mossel Bay
SHARK CAGE DIVING
Great White Sharks have always fascinated humans for various reasons. Perhaps it is their imposing size, their graceful beauty; perfectly adapted to their environment, patrolling our oceans since the beginning of time… Their powerful predatory behavior instilling pure fear in our hearts… or perhaps it is the mysteries surrounding this spectacular shark that beckons us to come closer and closer…..
If you are one of those….. who would like to come just that little bit closer, to experience the Great White Shark in its natural environment above or under water or perhaps just learn a bit more about them and us. You have come to the right place.
Visit our website and we invite you to be part of our Great White Shark family. Here you can read all you need to know about us and what we do. We encourage you to interact with us, make a plan to come and see us and the sharks face to face… we won’t bite…..promise!
WALKING WITH AFRICAN LIONS
A once in a life time experience… Walk alongside Africa’s most majestic predator. The “walking with lions” encounter is an opportunity to interact with young lions. No leashes, No Collars, just a natural African Lion Adventure…
This activity is an opportunity to accompany them on foot in their natural habitat. These lions offer guests an unparalleled experience and insight into the behaviour of this species. The close interaction with lions strengthens mutual respect and extends understanding and feelings for conservation. It is fully supervised and professionally managed by an experienced team.
The lions are unrestricted and roam free as you join them on a walk through fynbos vegetation and African Bush. These twice-a-day catwalks, which are strictly controlled by guides, are quite comfortable and slow to allow you to see how the lions interact and play. We walk with both white and tawny lions, separately, and a specific lion colour cannot be requested.
While at Botlierskop also consider an elephant safari, horseback safari, or hiking in the game reserve.
