My African Adventure🦒

An early start to the day. A boat trip was planned. Whale and dolphin watching. What I got was “Diving with Sharks”!!

They lure the sharks up to the boat. You then climb into a cage and have a “close and personal one to one with a shark!”

I wasn’t too keen at first. I don’t swim and I wasn’t sure what to expect. But the guides were great, they informed us what to do, and how to get into the cage. We wouldn’t be totally submerged.

Debating on wether or not I would do it. It’s something I’ve wanted to do. And I know my son was keen, so I thought “let’s give it a go.”

That was amazing. Not getting into a rubber suit (that was hard putting that thing on!) but the experience. To be that close to a shark, to see it in its natural habitat was something I will remember for a very long time. I only went on the cage once, but we had the opportunity to do it several times. I probably would have e gone in again, but the face mask was very tight!!

After leaving the boat behind, we got taken to a penguin sanctuary. That was cool, the guide showed us around and gave us a little chat. Telling us what the sanctuary did, and how it was funded. They rescue penguins to release back into the wild.

Coming back to the hotel, we were all pretty hungry, so we grabbed a taxi and headed into “The Victoria and Albert” wharf. It’s got lots of shops and places to eat. In the summer it will look really nice. But we had a little cloud. But it didn’t stop us from enjoying the rest of our day.

We ended up staying for a few hours, watching the sun go down in the restaurant we were eating in.
