SNORKELING TOURS IN AFRICA

Are You Planning To Snorkel In Africa? Scroll Down For Details..

An animated movie comes to life as you snorkel above thriving coral reefs during your oceanic holiday in Africa. The bizarre shapes of brain coral, staghorn, sponges, seagrasses and other stationary inhabitants create a world of eerie shapes that are filled with dazzling marine creatures. Darting about are cobalt blue and gold damselfish, puckered-mouth butterfly fish, sleek metallic barracudas, odd bloated spiny puffer fish, black-and-white zebra fish, camouflaged scorpion fish, graceful rays, to name only some of the smaller underwater species. Giant creatures share the stage, such as reef sharks, whale sharks, humpback whales, spinner and bottlenose dolphins — almost too many to name! Sea turtles gracefully sail through the water, and during your marine-sport African travel, you may identify green, loggerhead, hawksbill and ridley. AfricanMecca Safaris is the ultimate Indian Ocean outfitter for organizing prime snorkeling excursions off the continent of Africa. For your coastal tour of Kenya, we recommend the coral gardens of Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park, one of the country’s premier snorkeling sites. The site is especially engaging for guests who desire up-close sightings of dolphins and migratory humpback whales. The diversity includes over 360 fish species and 45 types of corals. Turtle lovers will savor every moment on the beaches of Watamu Marine Park where the turtles nest. Other worthwhile sites in Kenya are Mombasa Marine Park, Malindi Marine Park, Kiunga Marine National Reserve, Manda Toto and Kiniyka. Tanzania’s Zanzibar Island is not only a cultural treasure, but the waters surrounding the island are alive with marine species, such as eels, octopus and seahorses, as well as many vibrant fishes like scorpionfish, zebrafish, pufferfish, glassfish, parrotfish, black triggerfish, sweetlips and more.
Prime spots to snorkel in Zanzibar are at Mnemba Atoll and Chumbe Marine Park. Other destinations for a superlative AfricanMecca marine safari in Tanzania are Pemba and Mafia Islands, located north and south of Zanzibar respectively. Fanjove Island near Kilwa is the “New Kid On The Block” for snorkeling expeditions. Known around the world as a top marine life destination, Mozambique is one of the few places where you may see Indo-Pacific humpback whales migrating from the Antarctic across the Mozambique Channel. Take home tales of an African marine safari like no other when you tell your friends and family about seeing these amazing creatures first-hand! The massive aquatic mammals are joined by manta rays, turtles, boxfish, snappers, and other reef fish. Top sites to snorkel in Mozambique are Paindane Reef, Lighthouse Reef, Aquarium, South Point Reef and the Coral Gardens. Following the coastline south, you find spectacular shallow reefs of South Africa where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans merge. A notable location for your snorkeling trip to South Africa is the southern-most coral reef on the planet — KwaZulu-Natal. The preferred site for snorkeling is at Jesser Point around Sodwana Bay where over 1200 fish species are presents and many viewed thanks to exceptional visibility. The enchanting seahorse steals the spotlight at Knysna lagoon in Eastern Cape, and Cape Town offers easy access to kelp gardens where the antics of seals and penguins mesmerize you. While the continent is most often associated with vast savannah plains, majestic wildlife and iconic natural landmarks, a snorkeling vacation activity in Africa is a memorable, exciting and unique way to explore all that the region offers!
