    Thanks, it's a pretty cool experience if you keep your hands in the cage!

    A part of the cage sticks out above water and snorkels are used. The pic posted is of their sister operation in Cape Town which uses a scuba system. Multiple people can get in the cage at once and the trip is for four hours with lunch on the boat. It's only a 10 minute boat trip off Mossel Bay making it a very accessible shark population and you get a lot of face time with the sharks. They get big ones in as well 4-5 metre / 13 - 16 foot, it's the place to see Great White Sharks. Top side viewing is superb as well for those too afraid to get in the water.

    Observers get to dive with the sharks as well. Day fees are fully refundable if you get eaten :)

    Basic itinerary for the two sight seeing days are

    - leave Karoo Wild Lodge after breakfast for Addo Elephant National Park for big five game viewing
    - afternoon trip down the scenic Garden Route coast to Mossel Bay where guests can visit Monkeyland, Birds of Eden or jump off a bridge (highest Bungee jump in the world).
    - overnight at guesthouse in Mossel Bay
    - shark cage diving trip early next morning
    - return to Karoo Wild lodge via Oudtshoorn and Little Karoo

    unique, interesting offer.
    I showed it to my wife. lol. she said that nothing on this earth could make her want to get in a shark cage and surround herself with great whites.
    The only adventurous thing she's ever done was marry me.

    She's a brave woman! :D
    The ladies don't seem to like this offer, we should work out a hunting and shopping package to get you guys some credits for your hunting trip.

    on our 20th anniversary I took her to Hawaii. We were snorkeling and she had some packets of fish food to attract fish to us. she opened it and big fish came from everywhere. One zoomed in and bit her hand near her engagement/wedding ring. I think the sparkle caused it, although the diamond is pretty small. I was taking pics of her and actually got a pic of the fish that bit her.
    It wasn't bad, but scared her. I laughed...................................not out loud. I'm not an idiot.

    I let my youngest daughter (13) see this and she loves it! She said she would rather go as shark bait than in some car crash. She looks to tempt fate. She shot a blesbuck with Marius this last year and wants an ostrich the next go 'round. I think we are looking to go to South Africa again in 2015.

    We'll have the same package available in 2015 at similar rates. We also offer a shark cage diving excursion as a non-hunting activity with all our safaris. We only take one group at a time (ie exclusive bookings) allowing you complete flexibility and the hunting vehicle and PH/guide is at your disposal for hunting and non-hunting excursions throughout your time with us. Please let me know next year if we can be of any help in planning your next trip.

    Is the shark diving trip with the outfit listed in the above post (shark diving unlimited) or with someone else? The fact that someone else posted the shark diving info has us a little confused.
    Thanks

    Hi Randy

    No, it's not with Shark Diving Unlimited. Our trip is with White Shark Africa in Mossel Bay. I think Deanus saw the opportunity for some free advertising.

    This is a good deal in a very beautiful place. Hunted with Victor and Lindsay in September and their property and lodge are stunning, well suited to bringing the wife and family along as well. We will definitely be back there as soon as we can.
